Solution

The hōmecg+ Solution

This FDA-cleared, pocket-sized device allows patients to capture a medical grade ECG reading in less than a minute. A green light indicates an absence of Afib in that reading, while a red light notifies the patient that the Afib was likely present (also called an Hom ECG+). The ECG data is sent directly to the patient’s electronic health record (EHR) using the RPM platform. Providers can immediately review 40-second PDFs of ECG data, even those that did not elicit an alarm notification, to collect information on patient baseline rhythms and track trends of deviation.

Clinical Workflow Optimization

Our implementation team offers a best practice approach to introducing remote cardiac monitoring into a new site. Customized notification parameters can be set, and data is aggregated to one location allowing for the provider to make timely decisions about the patient’s care. The newly designed workflow includes:

  • Process Refinement
  • Policy and Procedure Modification
  • Technology Integration
  • Clinical Documentation Standardization

How the Device Works

How We’re Different

There are plenty of options for patients to collect an ECG reading from home. What makes hōmecg+ so unique? Not all of our patients can afford a cellphone, or the data plan that is needed, let alone use complex applications that come with them. The hōmecg+ is a stand-alone solution that requires no additional technology to function. Our solution also removes the patient as the middleman and the owner of data. ECG readings are sent directly to the patient’s EHR, along with other valuable physiologic data, using an RPM platform. This allows the provider to see the entire clinical picture with data, all in one place!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the hōm ecg+ heart monitor if I have a pacemaker?

No, the hōm ecg+ heart monitor is not appropriate for people with pacemakers. The electronic pulses from the pacemaker regulate your heartbeat, which may interfere with the accuracy of the device.

Can the hōm ecg+ heart monitor continuously monitor for atrial fibrillation (also known as AF or Afib)?

No, the hōm ecg+ heart monitor only determines the probability that Afib is present during the 45-second testing period. It cannot alert you if Afib happens outside the testing period.

Does the hōm ecg+ heart monitor detect other arrhythmias besides AFib?

The hōm ecg+ built-in algorithm only monitors for atrial fibrillation (AF or Afib). It will not detect other potentially life-threatening arrhythmias, and it is possible that other cardiac arrhythmias may be present even if the hōm ecg+ does not detect AF in that reading. If you feel you are in immediate danger, call 911.  You can also share your recorded ECGs with your physician or a trained clinician for further interpretation.

How do I use the hōm ecg+ heart monitor?

The hōm ecg+ heart monitor is simple to use for intermittent testing of Afib. It allows daily or even hourly checks in the comfort of your home or when you are on the go.

How It Works

Is the hōm ecg+ heart monitor FDA cleared?

hōm ecg+ is a federally regulated device and is considered a Class 2 medical device following FDA regulations and guidelines for that type of device.

What are some of the signs that I may be having an Afib episode?

If you have Afib, you may not be getting enough blood to your brain and other organs. Patients can experience various symptoms including heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue or fainting. Much more information can be found on the American Heart Association website and we encourage patients to educate themselves as much as possible.

What is an ECG?

An electrocardiogram (ECG, also referred to as EKG) is a painless test that records the heart’s electrical activity as a graph. An ECG is routinely performed when an arrhythmia is suspected. The hōm ecg+ records and stores high-quality, 45-second single-lead ECG.

What is Atrial Fibrillation?

Atrial Fibrillation (also called Afib or AF) is a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.

What is it stand for?

These are a common abbreviation and acronym used to reference Atrial Fibrillation.

Why should I monitor my Afib episodes?

For your safety and overall wellbeing, as you are five times more likely to have a stroke than the general population when you have Afib. The American Heart Association states that Afib is a major cause of strokes and heart attacks.

Will I know if I am having an Afib episode?

Not necessarily. Atrial Fibrillation can be both symptomatic and asymptomatic.
