Incomplete Heart Monitoring Leaves Out Important Clinical Data
JoTo PR Client, InfoBionic, was published in a ECN Magazine article titled, Cardiologists Shouldn’t Settle for Incomplete Heart Monitor Reporting.
On average a patient will have 115,000 heart beats in a day or 1.6M heartbeats in 14 days. Recently, the standard technology for remote cardiac monitoring of patients measured the heart’s rate and rhythm while the patient went about a daily routine for a period between two days and 30 days. Technologists looked only at the data identified as an ‘event’ and discarded 99.9 percent of the full data collected.
“To cardiologists, each beat is critical, and they should not settle for minimal reporting by solutions that do not include sections of beats” notes Stuart Long, CEO of digital health technology company InfoBionic. A snapshot could miss important clinical information either before or after an arrythmia and not provide the full picture when making a diagnosis. New technology uses algorithms that note key cardiac events and allow doctors to sort through large amounts of data. “The exact and surrounding points of the arrythmia is evident to the cardiologist,” Long points out, viewing through the physician’s perspective. “He or she can then have confidence that they aren’t missing anything in the technology on behalf of the patient.”
