Royal Philips has unveiled the latest version of its next-generation Cardiovascular Image and Information Management System, IntelliSpace Cardiovascular 2.1 for diagnostic imaging.

The latest version of IntelliSpace Cardiovascular offers seamless access to EMR data, scheduling systems and any web-based application while assisting the clinician.

The IntelliSpace Cardiovascular offers clinicians a single point of access anytime and anywhere to deliver web-based echo reporting and facilitates a diagnostic quality viewing of echo images improving patient care.

"IntelliSpace Cardiovascular expands the ability for cardiologists to deliver care from virtually anywhere by giving them power to access diagnostic quality echo images remotely." 

 
It provides an interoperable, patient-centric repository of cardiovascular information which centralises patient data derived from multiple resources to assist cardiologists in making clinical decisions while streamlining workflows and decreasing costs involved.

Elisabeth - Tweesteden Hospital Tilburg, the Netherlands echocardiography supervising physician Wally Wonnink said: "Now, the cardiologist does not have to search for images and reports from earlier tests or open multiple screens.

“Everything is presented in a unified view, on a chronologically ordered timeline.

"This will give caregivers access to the patient's history of diagnosis and treatment and can help prevent unnecessary examinations."

IntelliSpace Cardiovascular also includes expanded vendor agnostic web application programming interfaces (WebAPI), which are designed to allow easy access to third-party applications for customers.

Philips Healthcare IT senior vice-president and general manager Yair Briman said: "Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death, and account for more cost than any other chronic illness across the globe.

“Finding ways to speed the path to treatment for patients, while improving workflow productivity and enhancing patient outcomes, are critical to transforming cardiology care.
