McKesson announces new BCIS reporting functionality in its cardiology solution

New functionality helps increase speed and ease of BCIS data collection and reporting and reduces manual data validation

McKesson Imaging and Workflow Solutions today announced the general availability of the new collection and reporting functionality for BCIS data as part of its Cardiology CVIS solution.

The new functionality helps to increase the speed and ease with which data for adult cardiovascular interventions is collated in line with reporting requirements for the BCIS annual audit, while enabling organisations to reduce the amount of manual data validation required.

McKesson has developed the new functionality of the McKesson Cardiology CVIS solution to help hospital cardiology departments automate and manage their BCIS data entry workflows to promote better efficiency, effectiveness and provide accurate data, for audit with ease.

The new functionality is designed to support a trust’s business registry by providing the cardiologist with a single central source for all intervention-based data entry and validation, including a complete set of business and validation rules, and integration with Cath reports. The solution helps to remove duplication of data input and offers a complete, user-friendly solution for BCIS data entry.

This new method is proven to save clinical time by providing physicians with all of the information required to complete a BCIS submission in one place, with validation reporting functionality providing a list of all discrepancies on first entry.

Dr Dominic Cox, consultant interventional cardiologist and BCIS Lead at Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust, said: “Our processes for BCIS reporting are vastly improved and are much less time-consuming. Previously, data entry was spread throughout the system, making it unclear when data was missing. Using McKesson Cardiology as the single, central data repository with comprehensive validation rules, we are now able to get our audit data and thus our compliance scores more accurate on first completion of the report. Historically, this would have required multiple checks and corrections. Overall, the system is saving both physicians and our data analysts valuable time that can be re-deployed elsewhere.”

Maureen Gardner, clinical lead at McKesson, added: “We listened carefully to our customers’ needs and have responded with the development of a complete solution; one of the most comprehensive CVIS solutions on the market. The new developments are set to have a significantly positive impact on interventional cardiology departments using McKesson. We are thrilled with the feedback from our customers to date, this is testimony to our commitment to developing excellent imaging and workflow solutions .”
