In a recent KLAS report regarding cardiovascular information system (CVIS) perception, more than half of the respondents indicated that they do not yet have a CVIS strategy and many feel that a complete CVIS solution does not presently exist.

Orem, Utah-based KLAS set out to answer questions in both the vendor and provider arenas, such as what constitutes a complete, integrated CVIS, what are its essential components, and which vendors are closest to developing a truly integrated CVIS.

KLAS did not have a defined list of vendors that would be included in the report. In discussions with providers, the nine vendors mentioned most often during data collection were Agfa, Emageon, GE, Lumedx, McKesson, Philips, ProSolv (FUJIFILM), ScImage and Siemens.
