To improve efficiencies in your cardiology department, you need technology to streamline workflows, reduce redundant data entry, and balance workloads—while keeping costs under control. By integrating with your EHR and VNA, a single-database cardiology solution can provide efficient data entry at the point of care, plus increased data aggregation and easier care team collaboration.
This webinar will outline how healthcare providers can utilize a single-database cardiology solution to create a complete, unified cardiovascular record that supports your patient care initiatives. We will discuss best practices for leveraging your major IT investments, addressing changes in registry requirements, and sharing imaging data—all within a single system.
Using real-world examples, we’ll discuss how one provider successfully used a single-database cardiology strategy to deliver tangible value through:
* Seamless EMR interoperability enabling a single point of data entry
* Improved benchmarking and reimbursement accuracy
* Empowering administrators to make report customizations without delay
* Efficient point-of-use inventory management
* Improved staffing and turnaround times via data consolidation
Attendees will learn how a single-database cardiology solution can transform cardiovascular care. They will understand how to address common industry challenges, and will be able to answer questions such as:
* How can a single database system maximize the value of my IT investments, including our EHR and VNA?
* What are the benefits of reducing on-premise hardware?
* How can our facility improve interoperability, and what is the impact of integrating third-party applications?
* How can a single-database system improve operational efficiencies and patient throughput?
* How can we address staff burnout and improve care team collaboration?
* What can we do to improve report quality, accuracy, and customizations?
* How can we improve the onboarding of new facilities and support cross-facility standardization?
