St. Jude Medical, Inc. (NYSE:STJ), a global medical device company, today announced connectivity with an additional electronic health record (EHR) solution and a cardiac rhythm management (CRM) data management system. The company’s Merlin.net™ Patient Care Network (PCN), an Internet-based repository of patient and implantable device data, is now fully integrated with GE Healthcare’s Centricity EMR, as well as Scottcare’s OneView CRM device management system. St. Jude Medical customers using these EHR solutions have the opportunity to seamlessly integrate their EHR systems with the Merlin.net PCN.
Clinicians using St. Jude Medical products are already benefiting from these new connections:
“Integrating GE’s Centricity EMR with Merlin.net was a major milestone for taking our remote patient management to the next level. We are now able to achieve greater efficiency through simplified clinic workflows and by having complete patient information in one electronic record,” said Dr. Dan Goldman, The Cardiology Center, Delray Beach, Fla.
“We chose ScottCare OneView as our device management solution because it truly communicates equally with all device vendors, and specifically, it works well with Merlin.net. The smooth integration with all device companies and the availability of complete information, whether discrete data or PDFs, made this the right solution for our clinic’s needs,” said LaNita Hobby, R.N, Device Clinic Supervisor, Little Rock Cardiology, Little Rock, Ark.HEALTH IT
