A Three Step Solution
The best cardiac care requires an innovative combination of simplicity and automation to provide better insight and results in three steps:
1. large hospital devices need replacement by new mobile, flexible and easy to use devices.
2. Cardiac protocol should enable high quality ECGs bedside with reading by a Cardiologist...Fast!
3. Patient history, baselines, and other key perspectives should be at hand to reduce misdiagnosis and re-hospitalizations.
Hospital Quality ECGs
By building off of 25 years of building hospital ECG systems, our founders created a mobile ECG device with the same quality. This took a significant brain trust and investment to design, build and test the Spaulding device. The device also needed software to provide real-time analysis, capture an ECG for a read and automate a protocol supporting algorithms, workflows and integration with EMRs.
Calling 911 and sending a patient to a hospital is a well tested solution for cardiac care. With the costs of healthcare reviewed to find savings, sending a patient in an emergency setting in an ambulance to the hospital can be very scary for a patient. As an alternative in non-stat situations, what if an ECG could be taken by a skilled nurse and confirmed by a cardiologist in minutes instead of hours?
The result is better care a lower cost. Saving one trip to the hospital often pays for the Spaulding solution. Also having a familiar face at the patients side is priceless.
From acquisition through confirmation, the care protocol is defined by facilities to automate the workflow by Cardiologists. Instead of pushing around a large machine and printing out a report, care is delivered quickly bedside or virtually anywhere for the best possible patient care.
