About MUSE/ECG Web

Many areas of the province are using MUSE (Marquette Universal System for Electrocardiology), as a data management system for ECG’s. MUSE is linked to ECG Web which allows viewing and printing of waveforms. 

Announcement: Provincial Access to Viewing ECGs

This announcement is regarding the ability to view ECGs from across the province using MUSE/ECG Web as a supplement to current health information access.

Many areas of the province are using MUSE (Marquette Universal System for Electrocardiology), as a data management system for ECG’s. MUSE is linked to ECG Web which allows viewing and printing of waveforms.

Benefits of requesting access to ECG Web

Quicker access to ECGs

ECG Web provides quicker access to ECGs; real time access to viewing and printing completed waveforms. As soon as an ECG is completed using MUSE, the ECG can be viewed from anywhere in the province, as ECGs do not flow to Netcare until they are “confirmed”. This is very useful for ED telephone consultations.

Accessing ECGs that can not flow into Netcare

North and South Zone have submitted a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) and testing has begun to ensure the flow of waveforms to Netcare. Until Netcare’s final approval, ECGs completed using MUSE/ECG Web can be viewed from anywhere in the province with an AHS network using ECG Web.

Easier viewing, sorting and printing In ECG Web

Many physicians find viewing ECGs in ECG Web easier

    • ECG image is clearer
    • ECG and other diagnostics can be viewed simultaneously. One window to view ECG and another to view Netcare
    • Same username and password as AHS Network Log in

Accessing ECG Web

Once ECG Web is provisioned to a physician, he/she can access ECG Web via the AHS network using their own unique personal username & password. Some physicians directly access the AHS network and some may have network access using a FOB or other remote user access.

  • Requesting individual access: If a physician requires ECG Web to be added to his/her AHS profile, submit a request using the IT Access Request online tool. http://itaccess.albertahealthservices.ca/provincial/
    • See attached Physician Information Package for detailed instructions (network access required)

After March 2017, please submit requests following the “Requesting individual access” section above using theAccess Request online tool http://itaccess.albertahealthservices.ca/provincial/ (network access required)

  • Requesting Remote User Network Access:  For physicians wanting access to ECG Web from a non-AHS network (ie. private clinic or home) using a Fob or RSA SecurID app from their smartphone, request access via Identity and Access Management  (network access required)
