  • Representatives from SingHealth Services Pte, Ltd. and the National Heart Centre of Singapore, on a national tour of several U.S. hospitals, recently visited with Winthrop-University Hospital's administrators and medical staff. Touring the Hospital's state-of-the-art cardiac care facilities, the contingency discussed Winthrop's implementation of the Heartlab Encompass Cardiac Network and how the Hospital achieves nationally recognized quality outcomes for its cardiac patients.

    The Heartlab system connects the cardiac catheterization laboratory, the non-invasive cardiology laboratory and remote areas throughout the Hospital, allowing the team to expedite reports and images to key patient care areas for review, along with digital storage for future reference.

    "For the past two-and-a-halfyears, Winthrop has worked closely with Heartlab to implement this state-of-the-art IT platform for cardiac services. During that time, a true partnership has been forged with both parties poised to take the technology to the next level," said Dennis W. Sheridan, MBA, CHE, Vice President of Administration, Winthrop. "We were honored to host our distinguished guests from Singapore, and gladly shared our experiences related to this exciting project. In fact, the clinicians and administrators from both groups agreed to make a conscious effort to maintain future contact with their counterparts for the purpose of sharing best practices. Clearly, the world is becoming a smaller place every day."
