As it enhances its cardiovascular care delivery, Altamonte Springs, Florida-based Adventist Health System will incorporate a new cardiovascular data intelligence and imaging software made by Lumedx in its facilities.
Lumedx, based in Oakland, California, specializes in software for cardiology departments that helps streamline workflows. Its cardiovascular information system can provide analytical tools that help physicians make decisions, connect independent data sources and eliminate duplicate data, according to a statement from Lumedx. Additionally, it will provide remote access to the system for physicians and manage cardiovascular images.
“Lumedx has been working with Adventist Health System facilities for nearly 20 years, and during that time our partnership has produced a track record of success,” said Mickey Norris, vice president of national sales at Lumedx, in a statement. “We’re extremely proud to help meet Adventist Health System’s cardiovascular information needs into the future. Our tools will provide operational, clinical and financial analytics that will allow Adventist Health System to quickly identify best practices in each of its cardiovascular facilities—maximizing efficiencies and minimizing costs.”
Florida Hospital Tampa is the first facility the health system will implement the software in. More than 76,000 angioplasties and 11,000 open-heart surgeries have been performed there. Once the initial rollout is completed, the software will be installed at nine central Florida facilities.
“Working with Lumedx enables us to implement a single system to manage our cardiology services across our system,” said Jackie Willis, vice president and chief clinical information officer for Adventist Health System’s information technology department, in a statement. “This solution will allow us to collect data across our healthcare system to enhance clinical workflow and identify best-practice approaches, which will ultimately increase efficiency and streamline processes for care delivery for our patients.”
