Push for better patient outcomes drives new standard of care

In this webinar on Feb. 10,
healthcare experts from Desert Oasis Healthcare and iRhythm Technologies will discuss how Zio monitors, designed to be worn for longer duration than holter monitors, represent a new standard of care in remote cardiac monitoring.

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) has become a major global health concern, with  more than one in six ischemic strokes traced back to AFib.  The American Heart Association estimates that the annual costs of stroke will nearly double by 2030.

Traditionally, Holter monitors with leads and wires are used for cardiac monitoring; however, these conventional devices have recorded inefficiencies.  Remote cardiac monitoring is emerging as a more clinically efficient and better way to diagnose irregular heartbeats, which could reveal underlying heart conditions. Holter monitors can only be worn for 24-48 hours, a short timeframe that may miss capturing irregular heartbeats and not provide enough data to allow clinicians to make a diagnosis and may require repeat testing, ultimately resulting inefficient use of healthcare resources.

In this webinar, scheduled for Feb. 10 at 2pm ET, healthcare experts from Desert Oasis Healthcare and iRhythm Technologies will discuss how Zio monitors, designed to be worn for longer duration, represent a new standard of care in remote cardiac monitoring.

Key topics discussed:

  • Discovering inefficiencies of Holter monitoring demonstrated by health care resource utilization data at Desert Oasis Healthcare
  • Finding a solution: Economical and clinical considerations of adopting Zio
  • Establishing a new standard of care
Panelists:  
  • Lindsey Valenzuela, Administrator, Population Health Rx Mgmt, Desert Oasis Healthcare
  • Judy Lenane, Chief Clinical Officer, iRhythm
  • Brent Wright, Director of Health Economics and Outcome Research, iRhythm
