CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Jan 26, 2012) - ScottCare, a leading manufacturer of devices and software for cardiology diagnosis, therapy and monitoring, demonstrated the interoperability of its EHRPipe™ with various Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) device manufacturers at the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) North American Connectathon 2012 in Chicago (January 9-13).

"EHRPipe is a universal connectivity tool that we have built into ScottCare products, enabling them to interface with all EHR systems and CRM vendors," explains Snehraj Merchant, VP of Engineering at ScottCare.
