Client in the News: Stuart Long, CEO of InfoBionics, Makes a Case for Telehealth and Wearable Monitoring Devices

CLIENT IN THE News

Remote Monitoring Crosses the Healthcare Digital Divide.

cct JoTo PR client, InfoBioncs, was featured in a byline article in Congenital Cardiology Today titled, Crossing the Health Care Digital Divide with Remote Monitoring.

In 2019, where you live shouldn’t dictate your access to medical treatment. But a discrepancy still exists between access to healthcare in urban and rural areas. Digital health technologies are the tools to shrink that gap.  In the era of innovation that we live in, there is no reason that anyone should lack proper access to healthcare. More than 46 million Americans—or 15% of the population—live in rural areas. This translates into a need for more than 4,000 additional doctors.

Those same communities are in need of hospitals too. Over the last decade, we have seen 100 hospitals in 30 states close their doors. With the aging Baby Boomer generation in need of sufficient healthcare options, the lack of doctors and the loss of these facilities is taking a toll.

Telehealth is—and will continue to—play a major role in serving rural communities and their healthcare needs. Simple apps and consumer wearable devices can help patients track their fitness activity, eating habits, sleep patterns and heart rates to facilitate a better quality of life. “Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) can help doctors and other healthcare professionals monitor a patient’s chronic health conditions without the patient needing to visit an out-of-the-way hospital or bear the cost of an office visit.”

InfoBionic is a digital health company transforming the efficiency and economics of ambulatory remote cardiac patient monitoring processes by optimizing clinical and real-world utility for the users that need it most – physicians and their patients. The Massachusetts-based team of seasoned entrepreneurs have had successful careers in healthcare, IT, medical devices and mobile technology, bring specific expertise in remote monitoring and cardiology. They have seen first-hand the complexities of traditional cardiac arrhythmia detection and monitoring processes and designed the transformative MoMe® Kardia platform to remove the roadblocks hindering faster, more effective diagnosis and decision-making. Frost & Sullivan bestowed the 2019 North American Remote Cardiac Monitoring Technology Leadership Award upon InfoBionic. For more information visit www.infobionic.com
