Philips introduces enhanced Xcelera cardiology image management system

20 August 2009

Philips has introduced new enhancements to its Xcelera multimodality cardiology image management, analysis and reporting solution featuring telecardiology capabilities to increase access to images and information.

Xcelera R3.1 has new telecardiology capabilities to support clinical workflow and help provide faster sharing capabilities for cardiac patient information. Telecardiology allows remote access to cardiac information — including from a home office computer, image sharing with referring physicians and the ability to access Xcelera functionality through other applications such as an electronic health records (EHR) system.

Xcelera R3.1’s enhanced remote workflow capabilities support flexible work schedules, coverage for satellite clinics and physicians on-the-go. Harborview Medical Center, part of University of Washington Medicine, was the first hospital to implement Xcelera R3.1.

“Our clinicians are benefitting from more than increased access to studies with Xcelera R3.1. The system offers access to advanced analysis tools,” said Edward A. Gill, M.D., director of Echocardiography, Harborview Medical Center. “Having study quantification results automatically placed into patient reports and the clinical database simultaneously, enhances workflow and speeds diagnosis. This improves the quality of health care to our patients, our most important goal at Harborview Medical center.”

Xcelera R3.1 can seamlessly deliver cardiac images and clinical reports to an institution's EHR system. The new release also offers an expanded pediatric echocardiography normative dataset. Xcelera R3.1 is now available globally and upgrades are available for more than 2,000 existing Xcelera customers.
