The need to exchange information between applications, databases and other computer systems is no longer important in value-based care – it’s crucial to the long-term success of a hospital and better patient care. This has spurred the need for cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) that provide both front- and back-end benefits in terms of improved clinical and operational outcomes.
By optimizing the way healthcare data is stored, shared, and analyzed, total CVIS solutions like Hitachi’s VidiStar, allow providers to streamline specific workflows. Hitachi works together with our customers during implementation to customize structured report data fields, sections, format, nomenclature, and more to make sure we meet their workflow needs. The result is increased productivity and improved patient care.
A recent survey* of Hitachi customers who use VidiStar revealed the following.
- 80% saved time preparing final reports, with 60% reporting average time savings of 3-4 minutes per exam.
- 67% noted improved quality of reports (associated with auto formatting).
- 60% said they were able to read additional scans daily (associated with simplified reporting).
- 85% saved time per normal exam, with nearly 60% reporting an average time savings 5-10 minutes/exam.
- 73% were able to perform additional daily exams (averaging 2.95 additional exams/day).
There is no doubt that streamlining workflows can have a transformative impact on both operational and clinical outcomes. To walk through the workflow efficiencies provided by Hitachi’s VidiStar, view the interactive chart found here.
