Horizon Cardiology by McKesson offers high-availability cardiovascular information solutions that facilitate the improvement in the quality of patient care and boost efficiencies while increasing physician and staff satisfaction.
In today’s complex cardiovascular environment, the need for improved quality, safety, and efficiency is constantly increasing. Counter to this trend, healthcare providers are managing more patients while continued advancements in diagnostic tools and techniques are leading to rapid growth in the volume of patient data.
Horizon Cardiology is a complete cardiovascular information solution (CVIS) for cath lab, hemodynamics monitoring, echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, and nuclear cardiology. It features digital image review, archiving, procedure reporting, and workflow management functions.
With VMware virtualization, McKesson can deliver these benefits along with lower costs, simplified implementation, and faster upgrades. VMware vSphere enables hospitals to minimize their hardware footprint and piggyback on existing servers and SANs. In addition to saving on power, customers can expect virtualization to simplify the solution architecture and greatly reduce deployment time. Plus, VMware vCenter simplifies management, providing more flexibility and ease of operation once the solution is live.
In cardiovascular departments, equipment failures and availability disruptions dramatically impact patient care. That’s why Horizon Cardiology includes multiple layers of redundancy, including offering VMware’s virtualization technology that enables customers to quickly deploy additional layers of redundancy and disaster recovery.
