Exhibited at the ESC Congress 2016, the new IntelliSpace Cardiovascular 2.1 offers clinicians with a single point of access at anytime from any place and helps in the generation of web-based echo reporting and delivering diagnostic quality viewing of echo images.

The system also features an expanded vendor agnostic web application programming interfaces (WebAPI) to offer customers with better access to third-party applications.

According to the company, the system delivers seamless access to EMR data, scheduling systems and any web-based application.

It also provides an interoperable and patient-centric repository of comprehensive cardiovascular information to cardiologists, helping to take clinical decisions, streamline workflows and reduce costs

The World Health Organization said that cardiovascular diseases accounted for 17.5 million deaths in the last year.

Philips healthcare IT general manager and senior vice president 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,”

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