H-Scribe Holter system is intended to acquire, automatically analyze, edit, review, report and store prerecorded ECG data of patients that have been connected to compatible tape or digital recorders. The cardiac data and analysis provided by H-Scribe is reviewed, confirmed, and used by trained medical personnel in the diagnosis of patients with various cardiac rhythm patterns.
HScribe is a high-speed, PC-based Holter system with tools to analyze, review, edit, and generate results for Holter ECG data. Used in conjunction with Mortara Instrument’s H3+™ and H12+™ digital Holter recorders, HScribe provides full-disclosure data for arrhythmia analysis and incorporates Mortara Instrument’s exclusive VERITAS™ ECG algorithms for superior beat detection, atrial fibrillation detection, ST segment analysis on all recorded leads, and global QT interval computation from acquired Holter ECG data. ECG data from an H3+ or a compact flash (CF) memory card is downloaded for analysis to the HScribe. After acquisition, the recorder or CF memory card is erased and prepared for the next recording session using the HScribe application software.
The HScribe review station offers review, editing and reporting capabilities equivalent to the HScribe with the exclusion of the data acquisition feature. Holter ECG recordings are acquired at the HScribe or a networked download station. The HScribe review station can be set up as a Citrix® Application Server for remote access from client computers with Citrix Virtual Apps, formerly XenApp installed.
Retrospective, prospective, and superimposition scanning modes with automatic Holter ECG strip selection are supported to enable both traditional and advanced scanning options.
Report formats include scan criteria, tabular and narrative report summaries, rhythm profiles, trends of all arrhythmias, QT/QTc and ST segment values, template pages, automatic and operator-selected strips with one, two, three, or twelve-lead ECG, and full disclosure for selected channels. HScribe supports a paperless workflow with user verification and an option for authorized electronic signature.
Long-term storage of full-disclosure patient recordings is accomplished by the archive feature. Archived Holter recordings can be restored to the HScribe database for further analysis, review, report export, and printing.
For security purposes, user access to HScribe is defined by the system administrator allowing the ability to modify patient demographics, report conclusions, diary events and perform Holter ECG data editing. HScribe access is controlled by each user’s role (e.g. IT administrator, Clinical Administrator, Physician Reviewer, Holter analyst, etc.) and associated permissions. The HScribe database may also be configured for Windows Encrypted File System (EFS) for protection of patient data security.
An audit trail allowing administrative personnel to query details for user actions and operations is maintained by HScribe.
