Camtronics Medical Systems' (ALOG) New Web-Based Registry Reporting Application Receives ACC-NCDR(TM) Certification


10/19/2005 5:11:34 PM

HARTLAND, Wis., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Camtronics Medical Systems, Ltd., a subsidiary of Analogic Corporation , announced today that its VERICIS(R) Registry Reporting Application has been certified by the American College of Cardiology-National Cardiovascular Data Registry(TM) (ACC-NCDR(TM)) per the Version 3.04 coding requirements. The new coding requirements, finalized by the ACC in August, are mandatory for all participants in the registry as of January 1, 2005.

Offered as an option to the VERICIS Cardiovascular Information System, the Registry Reporting Application has been redesigned to significantly shorten the time required to enter data required by the ACC-NCDR. The application features a new, easy-to-navigate user interface, on-screen help, new interactive deficiency reports, and intuitive data grouping to streamline the process of data gathering. Because the application is web based, it can be deployed on any PC on the VERICIS network and allows information to be entered at any time over the course of the procedure.

The VERICIS Registry Reporting Application integrates information from the hospital ADT system, hemodynamic monitoring, and the VERICIS Clinical Reporting Application to streamline the process of participating in the ACC- NCDR. Information entered into the Reporting Application also populates VERICIS Clinical Reporting helping to shorten the time required to generate physician reports.

The VERICIS Cardiovascular Information System is the first information management system that captures patient data across the continuum of cardiovascular care. Built on a single information technology platform, VERICIS integrates data from different sites (office, clinic, hospital) and different sources (interventional and diagnostic X-ray angiography, echo, nuclear, MR, hemodynamics, reports, and HIS) to create a comprehensive digital record for the cardiac patient.

The American College of Cardiology-National Cardiovascular Data RegistryCath Lab module is a tool for measuring and improving the quality of patient care in cardiac catheterization labs. The ACC-NCDR provides quarterly institutional reports containing national and peer group statistics relating to diagnostic cath and PCI procedures performed in the cath lab. The registry consists of data from more than 500 institutions and over 1.6 million patient discharges.

Camtronics Medical Systems, Ltd., a subsidiary of Analogic Corporation, was founded in 1986 and is a market leader in cardiovascular information management and hemodynamic monitoring technology. Its industry-leading VERICIS Cardiovascular Information System provides single-point access to complete cardiovascular patient data including cardiology office practice records. Camtronics operates engineering, manufacturing, sales and marketing, and customer support activities from its headquarters near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as well as technology development centers in Winter Park, Florida, and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
