Video Tutorial


The Cardiology module provides streamlined access to cardiology-type reports and images, such as Echocardiograms and Holter reports, which previously would have been found in either the Radiology or Transcriptions modules.

This module aggregates Cardiology-related radiology and transcribed reports from select acute care hospitals into the Cardiology module. Please review the ClinicalConnect Data Integration Chart to see the organizations that are contributing their data into this module.  

Reports from other contributing source systems, will continue to be available in the Radiology and Transcriptions modules and users should check these modules for additional cardiology–related reports. 

Cardiology Images
The Cardiology module may include the corresponding diagnostic images from South West Ontario only, if available from the source system, and will display the camera icon beside the report line item.

These images will display using the GE Centricity Universal Zero Footprint (ZFP) Viewer. To learn more about using the viewer please refer to the section, SWODIN Images - GE Centricity Universal Zero Footprint (ZFP) Viewer  and take note of the Safety Alert.
