Qardio has unveiled its Livestream ECG monitoring solution suite, which includes continuous ECG, blood pressure, pulse oximetry (SPO2), body temperature, weight, and body position monitoring, to improve real-time virtual patient care.
These real-time solutions have the potential to revolutionize the practice of medicine in many settings, including remote patient care, transition of care, hospital at home, step-down units* (e.g., critical care/telemetry/cardiac), cardiac rehab, and even emergency departments*. By improving the ability of healthcare professionals (HCPs) to provide virtual care outside of clinical settings, HCPs can intervene quickly when patient health declines, thereby improving patient outcomes. Early intervention can potentially reduce healthcare costs by decreasing hospital readmission and accelerating the transition of care.
The key to Qardio’s advancements lies in the Livestream ECG system, which provides physicians with real-time ECG readings that are not limited to 30 seconds. It also features the QardioCore technology, which allows patients to take ECG readings without shaving or adhesive patches.
“Qardio’s dedicated team of software engineers and scientists are solving some of healthcare’s most pressing needs,” says Mike Alvarez, Qardio’s CEO. “Our mission is to reduce costs while improving healthcare with artificial intelligence-derived solutions. We are leveraging these solutions to improve outcomes for payers, healthcare professionals, and patients. Livestream ECG is a perfect example of providing data to the practitioner that can improve outcomes quickly and cost effectively. Qardio is unique in its ability to provide a remote real-time picture of patient health for heart failure, hypertension, COPD, and cardiac rehab.”
