Becker’s Hospital Review Features Discussion of Off-Premise Telemetry Monitoring

In the United States, heart disease is the most common chronic disease and remains the leading cause of death for both men and women, making the ability to provide accurate continuous cardiac monitoring essential for many hospitalized patients. Today, most hospitals and health systems have adopted some form of continuous cardiac monitoring technology known as cardiac telemetry. However, hospitals are now recognizing the value of off-premise telemetry partnerships.

For Becker’s Hospital Review, Advanced ICU Care’s Executive Director of Clinical Operations and Nursing, Marcia Murphy, details the significant value offered by off-premise telemetry partnerships. In the article titled, “How a Remote Cardiac Telemetry Service Can Minimize Health System Resource Burdens and Simplify Care,” Murphy elaborates on how the use of remote telemetry services reduces operational and administrative demands.

Partnering with a dedicated, remote cardiac telemetry service enables hospitals and health systems to benefit from a flexible cost structure that adapts to the ever-changing patient census, rather than finding services constrained by staffing availability or overstaffing to anticipate maximum patient capacity. Advanced ICU Care introduced off-premise telemetry services in 2016 and has aided its partner hospitals in eliminating the burdens traditionally associated with maintaining a fully dedicated 24 x 7 internal continuous cardiac monitoring program.
