Evaluating Cardiovascular RFP Responses
By Joseph L. Marion, Principal, Healthcare Integration Strategies, LLC
In a previous discussion, we explored the composition of a Cardiovascular RFP. An RFP for cardiovascular information systems can be more complex than for other Picture Archive and Communications Systems (PACS) or information systems, in that cardiovascular services involve more than just imaging. Wave forms and procedure documentation are examples of additional relevant data that must be managed in addition to images. Physician reporting is also more complicated in that it is typically done with structured reporting templates instead of by dictation.
Emergency Management Software: Benefi ts of an Integrated Approach

While this approach can be reasonably effective it can also result in disjointed communications and disparate systems deployment that can prove problematic from a complete emergency management perspective.
