Informatics

The goal of health informatics systems is to enable smooth transfer of data and cybersecurity across the healthcare enterprise. This includes patient information, images, subspecialty reporting systems, lab results, scheduling, revenue management, hospital inventory, and many other health IT systems. These systems include the electronic medical record (EMR) admission discharge and transfer (ADT) system, hospital information system (HIS), radiology picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), cardiovascular information systems (CVIS), archive solutions including cloud storage and vendor neutral archives (VNA), and other medical informatics systems.

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has published a new guidance document focused on the treatment of patients who present with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and other chronic conditions sch as hypertension, diabetes and atrial fibrillation (AFib).

The new guidance document was designed to help cardiologists and other clinicians deliver the best care possible when treating ASCVD patients who present with additional conditions that need to be considered. 

Cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) combine imaging and reporting into one system that allows access across the cardiovascular service line. Here are 7 trends in CVIS according to KLAS.

Monique Rasband, vice president of imaging, cardiology and oncology, KLAS Research, explains a few of the key technology trends in cardiovascular information systems (CVIS).

Validation and testing of all artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms is needed to eliminate any biases in the data used to train the AI, according to HIMSS.

Validation and testing of all algorithms is needed to eliminate any biases in the data used to train the AI, according to Julius Bogdan, vice president and general manager of the HIMSS Digital Health Advisory Team for North America.

Julius Bogdan, vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Digital Health Advisory Team for North America, explains the use of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to help address health disparities and the rise of healthcare consumerism.

Clinician and physician burnout is fueling the large numbers of resignations in healthcare, which are fueled by a handful of factors, including adequate staffing and being bogged down in non-clinical work, especially with inefficient EMRs.

Julius Bogdan, vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Digital Health Advisory Team for North America, discusses how artificial intelligence (AI) can help combat clinician burnout.

Julius Bogdan, vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Digital Health Advisory Team for North America, explains several key artificial intelligence (AI) trends he sees across healthcare.

Julius Bogdan, vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Digital Health Advisory Team for North America, explains considerations for healthcare system information technology (IT) management teams on the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI). He also discusses ideally how AI should be integrated into medical IT systems, and some of the issues AI presents in the complex environment of real-world patient care." #AI #HIMSS

Medtronic and GE Healthcare have received FDA clearance and CE mark approval for a new collaboration designed to improve patient monitoring. The combined solution involves the integration of Medtronic’s INVOS regional oximetry and Microstream capnography technologies into GE Healthcare’s CARESCAPE precision monitoring platform.

The collaboration is aimed at improving patient outcomes after cardiac surgeries and other procedures. 

Simple EHR alerts helped one health system get more guideline-recommended medications to its heart failure patients.

Cybersecurity

One of the cardiologist's creations, "Thanos," allowed his clients to develop their own ransomware software and rent it out to other criminals. 

Blood pressure

Hello Heart, a digital therapeutics company that focuses on heart health, has raised $70 million in a Series D funding round.

AI in cardiology

Ami Bhatt, MD, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) chief innovation officer and adult congenital heart disease cardiologist at Mass General Hospital, discusses how to get physician acceptance to use artificial intelligence (AI).

“This type of screening could be used to identify individuals who would benefit from statin medication but are currently untreated," one specialist said. The full analysis will be presented at RSNA 2022 in Chicago. 

U.S. physicians might be missing out on innovative medical research due to the overwhelming amount of reading and clinical work they are faced with, according to a recent survey.

Physicians are now bracing for payment cuts after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published its final rule for the 2023 Physician Fee Schedule.
