Aggregate Cardiac Device Data
Millions of Americans have implanted cardiac devices. Patients with these devices, such as pacemakers, defibrillators and loop recorders, transmit critical cardiac data from their implanted device from the comfort of their homes to the provider via the cloud. These transmissions allow providers to monitor their patients proactively for both routine device follow-up and alerts regarding device issues or clinical events, like atrial fibrillation and other indicators of heart failure. The platform aggregates cardiac device data from all major device manufacturers’ remote monitoring portal, in-office checks, and ER visits. The GHS remote monitoring service helps providers manage the incoming data in an outpatient setting.
