DOTmed News: When it comes to health information technology, are cardiologists facing any significant challenges right now?

VN: Yes, systems are largely generic, no intuitiveness in user-interface design, diagnostic reporting is largely chart based and offers no real clinical value in providing real time contextual intelligence to the physician by integrating with clinical data.

DOTmed News: What do you think the future of cardiology HIT will look like?

VN: Cardiovascular medicine is on the cusp of an exciting transition towards data integration, analytics and real time patient surveillance. In 2010, the total costs of cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. were estimated to be $444 billion with the treatment of these diseases accounting for about $1 of every $6 spent on health care in this country.

Given this huge cost outlay, the information technology sector will evolve products, services and delivery models to improve data services to enable physicians to manage their patient populations with less risk and higher quality at a lower cost.
