CardioNet Inc., a leading supplier of MCOT (Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry) solutions, has released an application for the iPad to enable easy access to cardiac monitoring services. The new iPad application is designed to provide physicians and the support staff instant online access to cardiac monitoring reports.
CardioNet provides the next-generation ambulatory cardiac monitoring service for automatic arrhythmia detection and wireless ECG transmission with beat-to-beat, real time analysis. It is the leading wireless medical technology company.
Joseph Capper, chief executive officer and President for CardioNet, commented, "We are pleased to offer the thousands of physicians who prescribe MCOT, the most advanced cardiac monitoring system on the market, easier accessibility to patient data. Starting today, we launched an iPad application which allows health care providers to instantly access cardiac monitoring reports on-line. We believe that making the most precise mobile cardiac-related information available to physicians at their fingertips, in a user-friendly format, is a powerful tool that will benefit patients and physicians alike."
In diagnosing and treating arrhythmias, time is of utmost importance. Diagnosing and effectively treating patients with arrhythmia rapidly is always a challenge. Even through 24-48 hours of Holter monitoring sometimes it is difficult to detect arrhythmia as the episodes occur too infrequently. With asymptomatic patients and with the patients who have difficulty triggering monitoring equipment, the problem of correctly detecting arrhythmia increases manifold.
Physicians can enroll patients with CardioNet and prescribe up to 30 days of monitoring with CardioNet MCOT. The enrolled patient wears small sensors and monitor and can continue with their daily life. With the help of those sensors and monitors CardioNet monitors the patients 24 hours a day.
As the patient goes through his day under monitoring, patient’s activity and information about all related events is automatically transferred to the CardioNet Monitoring Center for analysis and response as they occur. The CardioNet Monitoring Center then provides succinct, integrated information to the physicians via fax and online for further action.
The new CardioNet Access App will help physicians and their support staff in accessing, saving, printing and sending patient reports from the iPad. The App can be downloaded for free from Apple stores.
