Description: Centricity Cardio Workflow (CCW) is an information system software solution for storing and retrieving patient cardiology Electronic Medical Record (EMR). CCW interfaces with Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Cardiac Catheterization (Cath), Echocardiography (Echo), Electrophysiology (EP), Electrocardiography (ECG), Stress, Holter, and Cardiac Surgery. The software also communicates with other Hospital Information Systems (HIS), Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACs), and devices through standard Health Level Seven (HL7) interfaces and Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standards. Centricity Cardio Workflow is a component of Centricity Cardio Enterprise (CCE).

CCW is a stand-alone software solution intended to be installed on medical Information Technology (IT) networks. CCW connects to modalities via standard DICOM communication (X-ray and Ultrasound). These connections are used to send the DICOM Modality Worklist from the servers to the modalities and to send the images from the modalities to the servers. Interfaces from the servers to the Veterans Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA) and Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) are standard HL7 communication. CCW stores all data in a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database. The database can be configured for encryption of the data using Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) with SQL Server. No patient data or Protected Health Information (PHI) is stored to the client once the application is closed. The data that is transferred between the client and servers can be encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with the SQL Server, which will encrypt the data communication.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary.
