When Change Brings Opportunity: A Merge Cardio Case Study

Share this post:

The 2013 merger between Edward Hospital & Health Services and Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare created one of the largest health systems in Illinois. As is often the case with this type of amalgamation, executives of the newly named Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare faced numerous integration challenges and had to determine the best way to maximize each organization’s strengths. Thankfully, one thing that required little effort was deciding on a cardiology system.

Success With Merge:

  • Automating the cath lab process into a digital patient record across the entire system
  • Accessing and managing patients’ digital records from a centralized, web-based system, saving time and leading to more accurate, complete and faster results
  • Significant improvements pertaining to echocardiograms, better controls for video clips, and faster speeds when downloading cases
