Information technology firm Kardia Health Systems Inc., Rochester, Minn., is teaming up with Dell to streamline the delivery and management of cardiology care through a combination of their technologies.

Originally developed by echocardiography professionals at Mayo Clinic, the Kardia echocardiography information management system was designed to expedite the workflow process by reducing or eliminating data entry, managing the scheduling of patients, lab personnel and equipment, and through automated report generation.

Offering its infrastructure and services, Dell has developed a Web-based system to run and manage the implementation of the Kardia solution depending on the size of the cardiology practice. For example, smaller practices without a data center or IT staff can use the Dell PowerEdge 1900 or 2900, while larger practices would run on Dell PowerEdge 1950 III and PowerEdge 2950 III with storage on PowerVault MD 3000s.

Included in the system are image review stations running on an OptiPlex 755.

Dell will provide help desk and maintenance support services for all technology.
