Patient Healthcare Vastly Improved by Interconnecting Technologies

The buzzword in healthcare recently is connectivity, specifically in remote patient monitoring technologies. The overall definition of remote patient monitoring includes anything from x-rays emailed from one location to another to video conferencing. For cardiovascular care, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Health IT Now, and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) elaborated on this definition to include three distinct branches of which ambulatory cardiac monitoring is prominently mentioned. ReactDx proudly offers devices to connect patients and physicians with state-of-the-art remote cardiac monitors that lead to faster diagnoses and faster treatment. .

Remote cardiac monitoring is a form of telehealth, or technology-enabled healthcare services. The Institute of Healthcare Improvement’s goals are to improve patient outcomes and access to care, save health care costs, and improve efficiency and cost effectiveness in healthcare. Each goal is met through ambulatory cardiac monitoring.

  • Improved Patient Outcomes: Constant monitoring depicts baseline heart rhythm to more easily detect abnormalities. Because patients are no longer solely responsible for reporting any strain or difficulties they believe are occurring, outcomes are significantly improved, and care is more accurate.
  • Access to Care: By providing a portable cardiac monitor, patient records are monitored constantly by professionals. Self-monitoring is also prevalent since patients send and access recordings via smartphones. Healthcare providers can receive patient records from remote locations and digitally sign prescriptions or annotate patient records without entering a healthcare facility.
  • Healthcare Savings: The overburdened healthcare system saves money with ambulatory cardiac monitors because patients are diagnosed at the advent of any sign of cardiovascular disease. Prevention is much less expensive than analyzing and determining a cure.
  • Health Outcomes: Technology has drastically improved health outcomes. Patients are no longer encumbered by time, distance, or lack of medical assistance. Monitoring alleviates all these impediments and can give patients real-time assistance. In fact, more than 1.5 million miles of travel a year are saved by telehealth devices. By wearing a short-term Holter after a cardiovascular incident requiring hospitalization drastically curtailed readmission rates in several studies.

ReactDx is proud to be a part of the burgeoning telehealth community by offering ambulatory cardiac monitoring to healthcare professionals and their patients. Learn more about how ReactDx advances connectivity by calling (800) 23-HEART (234-3278).
