Hear How MUSE Can Help Improve Access and Quality, While Reducing Costs

Quick Quotes

  • "Our cardiac care center was recently rated No. 1 in the state. We couldn't have done it without the MUSE system. Now we can have the necessary medical personnel ready when the patient arrives." - Beth Relle, RN, BSN, Clinical Lead, Advocate Good Shepherd, Barrington, IL
  • "MUSE is a timely, accurate, and comprehensive system that has helped create a platform for more efficient communication among physicians across our entire system." - S. Garavet, Admin, Aspirus Hospital
  • "Having a comprehensive, customizable, and easily accessible system gives us the ability to correlate care across 19 clinics and 4 hospitals." - K. Fine, Sharp Healthcare
  • "With MUSE, capturing an ECG takes 10 minutes versus 45 minutes under the paper based process. Billing is immediate. Press a button, and the billing is processed." - B. Doerflein, Pocono Medical Center

Case Studies

Driving Cost, Quality and Access Improvements with Technology and Process Optimization

By linking streamlined workflow with wireless technology and information systems, HCA's National Group saw measurable results.

Enhancing Clinical Efficiency Throughout a Regional Healthcare System

In 2007, Sharp HealthCare began developing a strategic plan to expand its ECG management system from two sites to the entire system. The goal was to create a system-wide enterprise cardiology database that would be easily accessible and adaptable to the needs of each facility.

Implementing MUSE to Streamline ECG Workflow

The traditional paper ECG process at Pocono Medical Center was labor-intensive. Capturing an ECG took approximately 45 minutes. The entire process of getting the ECG signed and returned by the physician often took several days. And with the volume of ECGs increasing to almost 100 per day, paper records were rapidly consuming storage space.

Aspirus is proving the value of integrating a comprehensive cardiology information system with hospital electronic medical records.

Reducing Door-to-Balloon Time to Speed Up Treatment

To more rapidly identify acute myocardial infarction patients and improve clinical outcomes, Advocate Good Shepherd implemented a program to reduce door-to-balloon time for emergency patients from 90 to 60 minutes. To achieve this goal, the hospital decided to use the GE MUSE* Cardiology Information System's capabilities to streamline its patient workflow.

Simplified Workflow for Improved ECG Turnaround

South Shore Hospital explained that its old process for capturing, analyzing and billing ECGs was labor-intensive and time-consuming, causing delays in ECG transmission, interpretation and billing. Despite consistent effort by the staff, the hospital's 48-hour turnaround goal was not being met.
