Information Systems, Data Management, Cardiology

Definition : Data management information systems designed to record, process, and display clinical and administrative information related to the cardiac status of patients. These systems include hardware and software to collect information (e.g., electrocardiogram waveforms) from monitors and defibrillators; they may obtain additional information from echocardiology and cardiac catheterization studies, as well as from stress and electrophysiology tests. Cardiology information systems help physicians establish cardiac status and manage prognosis and treatment of patients during chronic cardiac diseases (e.g., congestive heart failure) or intensive care treatments; they usually offer scheduling capabilities in addition to clinical and administrative information. Dedicated systems, available for hemodynamics data, collect and process information from cardiac output units and fluid administration devices; other dedicated systems are available to record and process only information related to electrocardiography signals. The systems may function as stand-alone systems or may be integrated in a hospitalwide data management information system network.
