Standards of care centered around the quadruple aim
The results from this study and others evaluating the impact of remote monitoring technology play an important role in shaping the standards of care in place today, particularly as clinicians, hospitals, and policymakers continue to look for opportunities to balance the delivery of high-quality care while managing costs.
In another recent Philips study, researchers evaluated MCOT as a first-line diagnostic ambulatory monitoring solution with post-cryptogenic stroke patients and produced similar findings, further supporting MCOT’s value as it relates to cost benefits and improved patient outcomes. The study determined that a 30-day continuous monitoring program using the Philips MCOT, followed by an implantable loop recorder (ILR), improved atrial fibrillation detection rates and helped to reduce secondary stroke risk – validating the approach as an effective standard of care for cryptogenic stroke patients.
By connecting information, technologies and people across both the stroke and cardiac care pathways, healthcare can elevate its standards of care to help achieve the Quadruple Aim. For cardiology, adding monitoring programs into the post-procedural standard of care may provide a cost-neutral solution for addressing the unmet needs in monitoring for delayed cardiac arrhythmias in the TAVR population, ultimately helping to improve patient care.
