New Cardiac Management Device Announced by ScottCare

ScottCare Cardiovascular Solutions, a provider of non-invasive cardiology products, has released OneView CRM, a management system for patients who use cardiac devices, and the data they provide, that is a component of its CardioView Diagnostic product suite, allowing medical providers to monitor and manage pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator patients from device implant through device replacement.

Heart devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators have extended and improved the lives of millions of people worldwide. The Food and Drug Administration helps provide access to heart devices that use the latest science and technology, through approval and oversight processes that expedite the availability – and assure the safety – of the products.

OneView lets physicians monitor and manage patients with implantable cardiac devices, regardless of the manufacturer, consolidating discrete data and PDF files from St. Jude Medical, Boston Scientific, Biotronik and Medtronic hospitals – from the programmer at implant or in-clinic interrogation, and from manufacturer web portals for remote interrogations.

OneView is a web-accessible application and can be accessed from any computer, iPad, or smart phone with a browser and an Internet connection. The OneView solution is device-neutral, cardiac rhythm management platform that provides a single, common electronic medical record/electronic health record (EMR/HER) interface for all device manufacturer data.

OneView improves manages device workflow, provides query functionality, comes with an extensive library of default and customizable reports, and allows for physician e-signature for direct delivery into an EMR.

OneView CRM is part of ScottCare's CardioView Dx Suite. Each modality of the suite, including TeleSentry Live Ambulatory Telemetry, Chroma Holter Monitoring, arrhythmia/event monitoring, and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, is supported by ScottCare's CardioFile database. CardioFile is a web-enabled report repository, providing physicians with a single interface to review, interpret, approve and e-sign reports – which are then pushed through to the EMR/HIS system via ScottCare's single bi-directional HL-7 interface.

In April, a series of new guidelines for cardiac specialists were developed by the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation’s Mechanical Circulatory Support Council  to determine when heart failure patients should receive a mechanical heart-pumping device.
