Cardiology EMR Software Buyer's Guide

K Marsh
  • by K Marsh ,

Keeping track of patient records can be a stressful task for a practice of any size, but for specialties record keeping is another matter. Cardiology is a complicated field requiring constant checks and balances. Patient’s records are more complicated, and require special tests that also need to be recorded. Paper records are not only tedious to compile and update they are prone to getting misplaced or completely lost.

Cardiology requires a lot of imaging tests and relies heavily on electronic medical devices such as ECG, ECHO and Spirometers to monitor and detect abnormalities. Since all medical practices are making the change to electronic recording, the EMR software for cardiology needs to incorporate all of these features to make the transition smooth.

Features of Cardiology EMR Software

Specific Templates – Certain tests and procedures are intrinsic to the cardiology field and need to be part of cardiology specific EMR software. Templates include:

  • Pacemaker visits
  • Warfarin interaction alerts
  • ICDs
  • Cardiology SOAP notes
  • Hypertension
  • Carotid ultrasound
  • Exercise stress tests

Medical Device Integration – Because cardiology relies heavily on medical devices to monitor and examine patient conditions the EMR software integrates with the devices generating results automatically to save time and effort.

PQRI Reporting – Procedures in cardiology generate a high percentage of PQRI. Because of this most electronic medical record software are equipped with reporting functions for these as well as other pay-for-performance measures which is important for any practices payment structure.

Coding and Billing – The cardiology specific electronic medical record provides coding to verify ICD-9 and CPT codes that are associated with diagnosis. This allows for direct connectivity with billing software ensuring faster payments that are accurate.

Data Analysis – Integration with medical devices allows for immediate result generation, but electronic medical record  software takes it further by adding an analytical tool which takes the data and provides support in diagnosis and tracking progress.

Urgent Alerts – Cardiology is a time sensitive field and results and reports that might indicate an emergency health crisis need immediate notification. Urgent alerts in the system take the physical analysis of the doctor out of the equation giving the reports agency, highlighting them automatically.

How to Choose Cardiology EMR Vendor

Now that you’ve narrowed down all the vendors that provide cardiology EMR software you need to narrow the selection down to those that fill your requirements as a specialty as well as a medical practice.

Size – Some vendors cater better to large practices while some are best suited to smaller ones. EMR systems are designed keeping a certain number of users, scalability and support required in mind. When selecting a vendor keep in mind the size of your practice.

System Design – The choice, essentially, is between installation of the software in your on-site computer server, or cloud-based software that is available anywhere via Internet. Which system a practice goes for depends on their personal choice and comfort level. Some doctors feel more comfortable having the system on their computer server because they feel this is more compliant with HIPAA requirements, while others need to have access to their database wherever they are. You’ll need to shortlist vendors who fulfill your needs in this department.

Certification – It makes sense to make sure the software you’re going to purchase is certified. For cardiology the certification you should be looking out for is by the ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (“ONC-ATCB”). They are responsible for making sure your vendor meets Meaningful Use objectives and is HIPAA compliant.
