Cardiology clinicians used all of the powerful image technologies driving advances in heart care - coronary angiograms, echocardiograms, CT, MRI, and nuclear PET scans. Typically, such images were stored in systems far from the patient unit, so physicians and nurse practitioners had to leave the patient's bedside to see them. Similarly, siloed information on Medicare-driven core measures for cardiology made compliance time-consuming, especially when it came to patient-discharge instructions. In response, the cardiology service implemented the Microsoft Amalga, the Unified Intelligence System, technology that was developed at Washington Hospital Center and acquired by Microsoft in 2006. Consequently, the service is making patient rounds more efficient and thereby increasing patient throughput, providing more effective patient interactions, and boosting core-measure compliance.
