Pioneering New CVIS Combines Unification of Reporting and Automated Update of Clinical Guidelines

Published in Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare, May 2022

Most current cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) don’t give cardiologists the ability to adequately describe and report complex procedures. Adopting structured reporting and following the latest clinical guidelines are some of the key success factors to ensure increased patient safety and better care. A unified and modern CVIS platform integrates advanced reporting features and contains the most up-to-date cardiology guidelines, which not only ensures the clinician has access to the best data possible, but also allows for a better patient journey.

How does a lack of proper tools to keep up with the evolution of clinical guidelines affect the clinician and the delivery of care?

Cardiology is a research-driven field, thus its practice guidelines receive regular updates. As new guidelines become available, a unified CVIS platform featuring structured reporting needs to integrate this information with no lag time to ensure the clinician has the latest data. Furthermore, by having access to the latest techniques, medical devices, protocols, and clinical recommendations, a cardiologist can offer the most accurate diagnoses and perform the most suitable procedures

On the contrary, by not using a unified, structured reporting CVIS platform that updates guidelines automatically, a clinic must rely on third parties (vendor R&D, hospital’s IT department…) to perform the update, which risks the data becoming obsolete—or worse, lost. Additionally, current CVIS platforms do not incorporate clinical expertise. A unified system consolidates the clinician’s report by the time the procedure is finished, thus giving all clinicians access to the first-hand observation and documentation that is essential to improving patient care and ensuring accurate data.

How do patients, providers, and the healthcare system benefit from updated guidelines?

Overall, the benefits of a unified CVIS with multiple reporting parameters and updated guidelines allow physicians to generate high-quality and accurate reports much more easily, thereby improving efficiency and accuracy. Doctors no longer need to use multiple applications to complete their patient report, and the intelligent report generated by the CVIS will include all key data. Such a CVIS platform will go above and beyond hemodynamic management and the documentation of the procedure and will benefit the clinician, the clinic, and the patient.
