Successful implementation of a cardiovascular information and PACS system
With its high international reputation, the Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein (HIAE), is considered the best hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil and one of the most respected reference centres in the whole of Latin America. HIAE was the first healthcare institution outside of the United States to be certified by the US Joint Commission International.
Comprising five individual hospitals the HIAE group needed a PACS system to link the cardiology department, the Cath-Lab and the cardiac ultrasound facilities in the subsidiary hospitals. The hospital chose the Suitestensa Cardiovascular Information System (CVIS PACS )from EBIT (Esaote group); since last year the system has been sucessfully up and running and is now fully integrated with the local Hospital Information System.
