Updates to Change Healthcare Cardiology Echo™ Solution Help Customers Align with Latest BSE Guidance
Change Healthcare, a leading provider of cardiology solutions in the U.K., announced that the most recent evidence-based guidelines developed by the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE) have been incorporated into the latest release of Change Healthcare’s Cardiology Echo Reporting solution.
Released over the past 18 months, the BSE guidelines have been updated to reflect echocardiography best practice, support optimal diagnostic impact, and include:
- Normal reference intervals
- Right-heart assessment
- Tricuspid and pulmonary values
- Aortic stenosis
- Minimum dataset for performing a comprehensive transthoracic echo in adults
Current users of the latest release of the Change Healthcare Cardiology Echo solution, version 14.3, are benefitting from updates that provide the necessary range of fields, reference ranges, and flags/warmings to align with BSE guidance.
“Our latest version of the Change Healthcare Cardiology Echo reporting solution is web-based and aligns with the BSE guidelines for reporting,” said Maureen Gardner, Change Healthcare’s clinical lead for cardiology. “Change Healthcare continues to work with the BSE and our customers to ensure our users have the best tools to achieve and maintain their accreditation, both at the individual and departmental levels.”
Following a recent upgrade to version 14.3, users of the Change Healthcare Cardiology Echo reporting solution at Southampton General Hospital are now seeing the latest version positively impact daily reporting processes..
“The Change Healthcare Cardiology Echo reporting solution is adaptable, and its ability to align with the new BSE guidelines is really important,” said Alistair Harris, Echocardiography Service Lead, Southampton General Hospital. “Incorporating automatic measurements from the new guidelines speeds up our workflow by removing the need for any manual calculations. Not having to do a calculation or manually copy across a number from a machine may seem like something quite small, but with a system that runs seamlessly, we are able to use our time better and work smarter.”
