CardioBase - Cardiology Information System is an information system
for cardiology service management.
The system manages the patient's clinical process from admission to discharge.
It is possible to register examinations, consultations, and manage the entire
hospitalization. This platform contains a scheduling service and waiting lists
that manage all medical acts performed and to be performed at the Cardiology Service.
CardioBase is a system made with doctors, for doctors. It's totally flexible,
and adaptable to the needs of your Service.
Base (Administrative, Statistics)
The CardioBase® system stores patients' demographics as well as their corresponding risk profiles. The data can be obtained automatically through the Hospital Information Systems (eg DREAM). In the tab of each patient it is possible to visualize their clinical history (examinations, hospitalizations, consultations, ...).
In addition to a set of base listings, all data entered can be analyzed and combined quickly and easily, allowing data to be obtained for clinical studies or performance indicators. This information can be exported to Microsoft Excel or other statistical data processing software (SPSS, SAS, etc.).
Internment and Intensive Care
The CardioBase® system inpatient module manages the clinical process of the patient in the Intensive Care Unit and in the Infirmary, having an active positioning in relation to the existing information (new clinical analysis warnings, risk scores, ...). The main features of this module are as follows:
- Management of the complete hospitalization process (admission note, evolution and discharge);
- Use of configurable diagnostic tables (compatibility with international tables and ICD9 / ICD10;
- Intensive Care Unit (or Infirmary with updated diagnostic picture, bed information, and event alerts (download of analysis, exams, etc.);
- Optimized data collection and visualization to support the diagnostic process and action plan;
- Registration and transmission of the Acute Coronary Syndromes procedures for the SCA National Registry System of SPC;
- Importation of clinical analysis data from the Laboratory of Clinical Pathology for hospitalized patients, keeping a history of the same and providing a daily chart of values;
- Recording of complications with semi-automatic filing according to results of analysis results;
- Medication control (entry and discharge) with automatic issuance of medical prescriptions (Electronic Prescription System certified by ACSS) using the Infarmed Drug Database, updated automatically;
- Registration of Therapy and daily action plan, facilitated by the automatic calculation of dosages (for example: infusions from BMI) and generating the administration plan for the nurses;
- Visualization of risk stratification through automatically calculated scores based on data entered;
- Record of daily observations according to procedures performed
Complementary Exams and Diagnostics
The exams and procedures module allows the registration of complementary diagnostic tests:
Echocardiograms, ECG, Proof of Effort, Holter, ABPM and registration
of Pacing procedures, ICD, CRTs, Electrophysiological Studies and Ablation,
ICD and Hemodynamics (Coronariography, Angioplasty , CIA Closure,
Catheterization, VaP, VaMP, etc.).
The CardioBase® system connects with test equipment
(eg Echocardiographs, ECGs, MAP systems, Holter systems, Polygraphs, PACS)
allowing the sending and receiving of information (work lists, measurements,
ECG tracings , etc.). Whenever possible the connectivity protocols used
are the HL7 or DICOM or alternatively numerous proprietary protocols.
Scheduling and Wait Lists
The Scheduling and Waiting Lists module allows you to manage exam appointments,
elective internships, and appointments. This system interoperates with the
Hospital Information System whenever possible.
Patients on the waiting list will be transferred to the calendar or appointment
status and patients on the agenda will be transported to the medical act itself
(examinations / hospitalizations / consultations). This module manages the type
of medical act (examination, hospitalization or consultation), the doctor / team / room,
the date of appointment of the examination / internment / consultation,
the preliminary diagnosis, and the priority of the appointment.
In this module it is possible to obtain daily motion listings (daily diary summary),
wait lists (for days, months, years) and other items to be parameterized.
Confirmations / cancellations of medical acts can be sent to the DREAM system
for the purpose of an effective integration of the systems.
The CardioBase® Hemodynamic Module allows registration of catheterizations,
coronary angioplasty, angioplasty, closure of CIAs, carotid angioplasty, percutaneous
valvular prostheses (VaP and VaMP). In addition to the demographic data
(which can be obtained from a Hospital Management System: SONHO, Glintt, etc.),
the software allows recording of all the clinical data about the referred
procedures as well as the material used in them (it allows integration with the
module of Stocks of the CardioBase or with the systems StockScan, Glintt or ST + I).
The Hemodynamic Module also allows exportation of data from the examinations
(Angioplasties) to the CARDS European Registry and to the National Registry of Interventional Cardiology of the APIC (SPC).
The CardioBase® Arrhythmology Module allows the registration
of implantation of Pacemakers, CRT-P, CRT-D, CDI, Implantable Event Recorders,
Electrophysiological Studies, and Ablations. The system allows patients to
attend to in-person (remotely linked to programmers) or remote (direct and
automatic integration with platforms of different device manufacturers)
patients, allowing them to keep track of all documents and information
in one place. The software allows for the recording of all clinical data
referring to the mentioned procedures as well as the material used in
them (it allows integration with the Stocks module of the CardioBase or
the StockScan, Glintt, or ST+I systems).
The Arithmology Module also allows the export of data from Pacing
deployments to a Clinical Register (EUCOMED format).
CardioBase® Web is a module of the CardioBase platform
that works in a Web environment and that includes 2 different functionalities:
- Clinical Reports or ECGs
- Orders / Markings and Referrals
The functionality of the Clinical Reports allows you to view the patient's medical
history from the Cardiology Service at any point in the hospital, including all examination
reports, external images (PACS), and ECG tracings.
The Orders / Markings and Exam referencing allows you to order and / or make appointments
for Cardiology examinations, depending on the existing permissions, which will
automatically appear on the CardioBase® system, accessible through
the Scheduling module. The referral data also automatically passes on the request / marking
(risk profile, clinical presentation, etc.).
Access to CardioBase® Web can be done through a browser with login and
password or through the Hospital Information System (SClinico, Glintt, etc.) with
integrated authentication. The access settings are defined in each implementation.
The CardioBase® Cardiac Surgery Module registers cardiac
surgeries for adults and pediatrics (coronary, valvular, congenital and others).
In addition to the demographic data (which can be obtained from a Hospital
Management System: DREAM, Glintt, etc.), the software can record
all clinical data referring to the referred surgeries.
The Cardiac Surgery Module also allows the export of data from surgeries
to the National Registry of Cardiac Surgery (QUIP format).
Objectives and Solutions
CardioBase® Broadcast provides any Intervention Room
with the ability to transmit live cases either to the Hospital / Institution
itself or to any outside location via the Internet, by public or private channel.
The system also allows continuous monitoring of the Intervention Rooms,
including the temporary recording of images for later analysis.
Image and Sound
Video images are captured from 2 different sources (2 video cameras -
foot and arm of the Angiograph), X-ray image, Polygraph image,
additional video source (eg OCT, IVUS, Echocardiograph).
Up to 16 simultaneous images can be combined, and up to 4 images
can be used simultaneously. Image and positioning sources can be
configured and can be selected / activated at any time during transmission.
Sound is captured in the Intervention Rooms through wireless microphones,
at the Control Station and in the Auditoriums and Showrooms. Any sound source
can be heard or disabled anywhere in the installation.
The system also allows conference calling to external locations (via the Internet)
allowing the remote assistance of the cases transmitted to an external location
(sound and image) from the Intervention Rooms (Sound) and Hospital Rooms / ).
Installation, Training and Support
The solution includes the provision, installation and configuration of all
equipment and software and is provided as a turnkey solution.
In addition to the training provided when installing the system, an on-site
technical support and remote support service will be provided to support the
operation of the system.
CardioBase CIS Integration
The CardioBase® Broadcast module will integrate with the
CardioBase® CIS Cardiology Information System , through the
association of recorded clinical cases with the work list and cases of the day.
