General Devices Rosetta 12-Lead Reports Now Compatiable With Muse System


 
 

| Tuesday, October 11, 2011


General Devices has announced that 12-lead ECGs from ZOLL and Philips monitors sent via Rosetta-DS or Rosetta-Lt and received by General Devices’ CAREpoint Workstation can now be sent into GE’s MUSE ECG management systems. The arrangements between General Devices (Ridgefield, NJ) and GE Health Care (United Kingdom) resulting in this interoperability greatly enhances the process of sending, storing and distributing 12-lead ECGs for hospital and Emergency Medical Services using these two popular systems. According to Curt Bashford, General Devices’ President, “This capability is just another example of General Devices’ focus on improving communications, documentation and information management for emergency medicine. Without it you had two islands of data, and now they are bridged.”

The first large scale use of the two combined systems is at the Trident Health System in Charleston South Carolina, involving two county-wide EMS agencies covering over 1,500 square miles - Trident Medical Center and Summerville Medical Center.

Using this system, Charleston County EMS is now sending 12-lead ECGs from their ZOLL monitors via Rosetta-DS, using their tough books and 3G cellular. Dorchester County EMS is sending 12-lead ECGs via Rosetta-Lt over their 2-way trunked radio. The field reports are received on the CAREpoint Workstations at both hospitals where they are viewed, printed and exported to MUSE for archiving and management along with in-hospital ECGs, merging Trident Health System’s prehospital and in-hospital ECG related activities.

According to Allison Walters, RN, Assistant VP Cardiovascular Services for Trident Health System: “This new capability allows our physicians to pull up the EKG on MUSE and view it prior to arrival, help verify EKG changes, provide feedback to our STEMI team (EMS, ED staff and physicians, cardiologists and Cath team) and improves our review process for educational purposes and quality improvement”.

General Devices is a leading supplier of innovative solutions for Emergency Medical Services, Hospitals and Public Safety, with more than 800 installations across the country and over 25 years of experience in EMS (mobile/wireless) communications, information management and telemedicine. According to Bashford, “General Devices is dedicated to providing cost-effective, open-architecture systems to EMS and hospitals that improve the broad range of activities that occur between the field and many departments within the hospital.” The company is also a leader in the emerging field of EMS Telemedicine.
