ST. LOUIS, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced ICU Care, the nation's leading provider of high-acuity tele-ICU and monitoring services, has been honored by MedTech Breakthrough with recognition for offering the "Best Remote Patient Monitoring Solution". MedTech Breakthrough is an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology market through its annual awards program. Advanced ICU Care was selected as a 2020 winner for its Remote Cardiac Telemetry program for hospitals and health systems.
Advanced ICU Care's remote cardiac telemetry services aids its partner hospitals by eliminating many of the challenges traditionally associated with maintaining a dedicated 24 x 7 internal telemetry program. The company's remote telemetry program utilizes certified telemetry technicians independently managed outside of the hospital to provide real-time monitoring, interpretation, and recognition of cardiac waveform changes for immediate notification to the appropriate hospital nurse or physician. The telemetry service offering minimizes alarm fatigue within the hospital and reduces significant burdens and distractions for hospital resources so bedside teams can focus on delivering patient care.
"Heart disease is the most common chronic disease in the U.S. and remains the leading cause of death for both men and women, making the necessity to provide accurate and timely cardiac monitoring more vital than ever for at-risk hospitalized patients," said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. "Advanced ICU Care was selected as a MedTech Breakthrough Award winner for its exceptional remote cardiac telemetry service. This experienced telemedicine solutions provider is enhancing how cardiac surveillance is approached and facilitating the care delivery process to make effective cardiac telemetry available to a full range of hospitals and ultimately help save patient lives."
