Health care facilities that have utilized the MUSE system have realized a number of benefits:

• Turnaround time for ECG reports is greatly improved, allowing physicians to make faster decisions and provide better health care.

• Technician time to do the ECGs has been greatly reduced with the elimination of having to return to departments to download data.

• Employee efficiency is enhanced, as they no longer have to match of test results with the original orders.
