A complete, truly integrated cardiovascular information system (CVIS) does not currently exist, according to a new report from healthcare market research firm, KLAS (Orem, Utah).

Entitled, “In Search of a CVIS — The State of Cardiology IT Today,” the report examines the fragmented market for cardiology systems. Among a number of key findings, it states that healthcare providers are still seeking a total cardiology solution that can efficiently distribute images, offer intuitive physician reporting tools and handle operational tasks throughout the cardiology department, says KLAS.

The report identifies a number of reasons for the high rate of replacement among cardiology solutions, including physician frustration, rapidly advancing technology and the need to unify an organization’s imaging and IT infrastructure, generally as part of an enterprise imaging strategy. A steady stream of acquisitions in the space has also been a factor as product lines are consolidated.

It also found that the most satisfied CVIS customers were those with dedicated, internal cardiology IT support resources.
