One of the biggest challenges is managing this subset of patients at the lowest level of care. Finding the appropriate access point along the continuum is beneficial to all parties involved, especially the payor. The use of ECG devices in the home reduces overall cost structures, drives preventative strategies, and improves member satisfaction. If we can keep patients at home until they need care and better manage the type of care they receive, that is a win for everyone!
ECG data allows for better treatment decisions on whether to bring the patient into the office refer them to a specialist or recommend emergent care.
