In 2007, the American Heart Association (AHA), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) initiated a diagnostic statement list to create a common and easily applied terminology. There may be significant enhancements for ECG Information System with the help of the terminology, such as editing a comprehensive and normalized interpretation, classifying the ECGs automatically while interpreting, and the further using. Nowadays, there is no ECG Information System that could embody the features of the terminology. This paper designs an ECG Information System based on the terminology and presents 4 parts that improve the system: (1) Edit a normative diagnostic interpretation with the terminology. (2) Express the text and coded interpretation in XML format which is helpful for further usage. (3) Statistics of ECGs contributes to perform research with specific ECG classifications. (4) Retrieval is targeted and precise with the terminology, and the comparison is more meaningful. The system in this paper can be further enhanced, but the greatest barrier for the terminology is that it is still new for ECG manufacturers to accept it.
