PaceMate announced that it’s collaborating with AliveCor, known for its FDA-cleared personal electrocardiogram technology and remote patient management solutions for the cardiovascular industry. This collaboration will combine the strengths of PaceMate’s cardiac remote monitoring platform, PaceMateLIVE – designed to improve clinical, operational, and financial outcomes – with AliveCor’s KardiaPro platform to capture and triage ECG data from the AI-enabled, medical-grade six-lead KardiaMobile(R) 6L and single-lead KardiaMobile Card. 

Through this collaboration, healthcare providers are able to access clinically relevant heart rhythm analyses and actionable reports via PaceMateLIVE to monitor at-risk patients; identify underlying arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation (AF); and drive improvements to patient care and clinical outcomes. Additionally, healthcare providers can monitor heart failure risk factors, such as weight and blood pressure, for patients with AliveCor through its Application Programmer Interface (API) with leading consumer health apps.

This combined remote cardiac monitoring platform is designed to encompass consumer ECG, event monitoring, heart failure, and implantable cardiac devices for a full cardiac device care continuum.

“Until now, consumer monitoring data, ambulatory event monitoring, vital heart conditions, and implantable device data were only available on disparate platforms, making it difficult for healthcare providers to access the full range of patient data,” says Patricia Baran, SVP Healthcare North America & BioPharma Global, AliveCor. “Activating AliveCor’s KardiaMobile ECGs capabilities on PaceMate’s comprehensive PaceMateLIVE platform helps improve the quality and efficiency of patient care by providing comprehensive visibility and critical insights within a single solution to streamline clinician workflows.”

“PaceMateLIVE offers a comprehensive clinical platform that can monitor patients with consumer wearables, ambulatory event monitoring, heart failure, and implantable cardiac device data from the earliest stages of disease progression through the full cardiac care continuum – this is unique in cardiac data management,” says Tripp Higgins, CEO of PaceMate. “Physicians and caregivers now have a longitudinal view of the patient’s progression in one intuitive user experience while simultaneously reducing overall time spent on data management. We are proud to be the pioneer in remote cardiac management.”

This partnership aims to enable greater clinical, operational, and financial efficiencies for healthcare organizations, more informed clinical decision-making for practitioners, and effective treatment for patients, by bringing complete information to every step in the diagnosis and device management process. Additionally, connected solutions with monitoring and EHR integrations like PaceMateLIVE can facilitate seamless sharing of secure ECG data to optimize physicians’ workflows.

“We expect the AliveCor and PaceMate integration to have real impact on our clinical workflow,” says Mark Marieb, MD, FHRS, FACC, FAHA, electrophysiologist at Griffin Hospital in Connecticut. “PaceMate is setting a new standard for cardiac data that is long overdue.”
