IHE 2008 Cardiology

  1. 1. Presenter Maria Rudolph, American College of Cardiology Staff IHE Cardiology
  2. 2. Why IHE Cardiology? <ul><li>Multiple locations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Office, in-patient, ED </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Individual patient is seen in multiple locations – distributed patient record </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Individual clinician practices in multiple locations – across organizational boundaries </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple devices and modalities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to integrate data for comprehensive view of patient </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple specialists cooperating on single patient </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Chronic Disease </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Long term patient care – persistent and evolving patient record </li></ul></ul>Lots of hard data integration problems
  3. 3. IHE Cardiology Organization <ul><li>Principal Sponsor : American College of Cardiology </li></ul><ul><li>European Sponsor : European Society of Cardiology </li></ul><ul><li>Specialty Society Sponsors : American Society of Echocardiography American Society of Nuclear Cardiology Heart Rhythm Society </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Workflow Foundation <ul><li>Managing cardiology procedure workflow to ensure consistently identified and integrated data </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cardiac Catheterization Workflow Profile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Echocardiography Workflow Profile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stress Testing Workflow Profile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nuclear Medicine Image Profile (Cardiology option) </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Cath Lab Workflow 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Multiple re-entry of Patient ID Error prone data entry Results fragmented across systems Results inconsistently time-tagged Custom solutions needed for data sharing Difficult to manage Uncoordinated with Hospital Information System Unidentified patients (emergency) Un-ordered cath exams Diagnostic and interventional procedures Ad hoc scheduling of cath labs Change of rooms during procedure 8 9 10 11 note: Cath Profile includes Electrophysiology lab
  6. 6. Echo Workflow <ul><li>The “drive-by echo” – Cardiologist to sonographer in CCU: “While you’re here, do a TTE on bed 3” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unordered, unscheduled exam </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Machine disconnected from network </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Stress echo – After exam, sonographer creates new quad displays of stages and views </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No intrinsic value add </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data is redundantly copied to storage </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Stress Workflow <ul><li>~85% of stress tests are multi-modality (ECG + imaging) </li></ul><ul><li>~0% of current architectures manage ECG and imaging workflow and results in an integrated manner </li></ul><ul><li>Poor adherence to ACC/ASNC nuclear image display requirements </li></ul>IHE Stress Testing Profile and IHE Nuclear Medicine Image Profile Trial Implementation
  8. 8. Workflow Architecture Summary <ul><li>Cath, echo and stress workflows (and cardiac CT and MR) managed with a common architecture </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HL7 Patient Demographics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HL7 Orders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DICOM Worklist Management </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DICOM Object Management and Display </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Images, waveforms, measurements, procedure logs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Modality specific requirements to improve workflow and clinical utility </li></ul>
  9. 9. Getting results <ul><li>Consistent electronic methods for reporting on cardiology findings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Evidence Documents Profile (quantitative measurements) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cath and Echo options </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implantable Cardiac Device Observations Profile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Retrieve Information for Display Profile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Retrieve ECG for Display Profile </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Cath and Echo Evidence Documents Echocardiography Measurement Patient: Doe, John Technologist: der Payd, N Measurements: Mitral valve diameter 3.1cm - shown in image at [ ] Ventricular length, diastolic 5.97 cm - shown in image at [ ] Ventricular volume, diastolic 14.1 ml - inferred from [ ] - inferred from VLZ algorithm <ul><li>Current kludges: </li></ul><ul><li>Measurements made on modality or workstation, and written onto a paper worksheet, then transcribed into a report </li></ul><ul><li>Measurements output to a printer port, intercepted by an application that scrapes the values </li></ul><ul><li>Screen capture of measurements sent to a reporting system, which uses OCR (optical character recognition) to reconstruct the original measurement names and numbers </li></ul>
  11. 11. Implanted Device Observations <ul><li>Explosion in number of implantable cardioverter defibrillators </li></ul><ul><li>Clinicians need to manage patients with a wide variety of devices in many contexts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ICDs, CRTDs, pacemakers, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implant, office follow up, home monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Need standard set of observations, communicated in standard messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Therapy settings, events, device self-monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enables consistent presentation of data from all devices </li></ul></ul>Trial Implementation
