Bothell’s Cardiac Science Corporation, a global leader in advanced cardiac diagnosis, resuscitation, rehabilitation and informatics products, announced that Mexico’s Instituto de Seguridad y Servicios Sociales de los Trabajadores del Estado (ISSSTE) ordered 282 electrocardiograph systems (ECGs) — the single largest ECG order in Cardiac Science history. Instrumentation Technologies de Mexico, Cardiac Science’s exclusive distributor in Mexico, managed the sale.
ISSSTE is Mexico’s main Mexican hospital network for millions of government workers. Seeking a leader in connectivity technology, ISSSTE chose Cardiac Science to upgrade services throughout the hospital system and give health-care practitioners in remote locations access to faraway cardiology experts. Cardiac Science ECG devices come with communications features to network ECG patient data and allow practitioners to send ECG results to hospital information (HIS), electronic medical record (EMR) and other systems throughout the network.
All Cardiac Science electrocardiographs can be integrated using HeartCentrix, the Cardiac Science cardiac informatics system, to connect with HIS, EMR and other systems. The ECG devices all include options for Wi-Fi, wired Ethernet, wireless 802.11 communications and Bluetooth connectivity.
