ScottCare has introduced a new Wi-Fi-based remote cardiac rhythm monitor, TeleSense RCM, which is designed for cardiology practices and hospitals seeking to effectively manage symptomatic and asymptomatic cardiac event patients.

TeleSense RCM is a three-in-one device, which integrates complete mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT), Holter and cellular event monitoring.

The monitor provides clinicians with real-time streaming for live patient visibility, auto-detection of arrhythmia events and wireless transmission of three channels of ECG data to accurately correlate patient symptoms to changes in electrical conduction of the heart.

The device has the capability of transmitting up to 30 days of continuous ECG data using multiple cellular networks or a patient’s home or business Wi-Fi network.

ScottCare’s proven platform will be used to receive events. TeleSense’s web-accessible reporting software will support detailed and actionable reporting through daily heart rate trends, event and end-of-session reports,as well as interim and summary statistics, and advanced administrative and clinical queries.

"They can depend on TeleSense to help them care for their cardiac event patients in a highly convenient and effective way."

ScottCare research and development vice-president Sneh Merchant said: "We created TeleSense with the goal of providing clinicians with an easy-to-use, comprehensive monitoring device they could trust for diagnostic accuracy, technological reliability and improved patient compliance.

"They can depend on TeleSense to help them care for their cardiac event patients in a highly convenient and effective way.

"We’re proud to have added TeleSense to our portfolio and know clinicians will be as well."

The company noted that optional electronic health record (HER) integration allows reports to be easily viewed and e-signed by the physician prior to automated transmission to any HL7-based electronic health record (EHR) system.

An accessible button on the front of the device will allow patients to quickly record and immediately transmit self-identified events.

The company is focused on providing monitoring devices, software and labour services to hospitals and cardiology practices. It also offers EHR data integration services that will help in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease.
