Information Systems, Data Management, Cardiology, Electrocardiography
Definition : Cardiology data management information systems designed to record, process, and display information related to the clinical and administrative management of a patient based on electrocardiography (ECG) waveform status. These systems include hardware and software to collect, process (e.g., waveform magnification and/or superposition, automated calipers), integrate, and retrieve information from electrocardiographic signals that may be taken under different conditions (e.g., stress exercise testing, ambulatory data, pacemaker events), usually providing interpretative statements. ECG data management information systems help physicians establish a comprehensive evaluation of a patient's ECG waveforms. The systems may function as stand-alone systems or may be integrated in a hospitalwide data management information system network.
