SmartECG is a service for GPs and healthcare units that supports GPs in diagnosing heart patients. SmartECG willl be ready for full scale market introduction in 2018.
SmartECG service provides the GP with an automatic ECG analysis report within minutes from downloading the ECG data from ECG monitoring device to SmartECG service.
Earlier detection of heart problems can lead to better treatment results, better quality of live life and even more lives saved.
SmartECG service is a fast and cost-effective way of screening and referring the right patients to secondary care, as well as monitoring diagnosed heart patients during recovery and illness in the primary care level.
You can choose how to integrate SmartECG service in your pathways to diagnosis. There are several optional diagnosis pathways that SmartECG service can be integrated to:
This is how it works:
SmartECG service will be a unique and revolutionary solution, an algorithm and service platform with which ECG data can be automatically analysed and interpreted.
SmartECG is the first and only automatic clinical decision support solution that will be compatible with 80 % of different ECG-monitoring devices and suitable for primary and secondary care professionals.
The validation process will begin in spring 2018 and we expect to finalize the CE marking process and to receive FDA clearance by 11/2018.
RemoteA has over 15 years of experience in running a Remote Diagnostic Service Platform, operated today in over 300 healthcare units in Finland, Sweden and United Kingdom. Over 70.000 ECG consultation reports has been delivered thus producing +1.5 million hours of cardiac data to develop the automatic analysis on. RemoteA has developed strong algorithm expertise on ECG data as welll as a wide network of cardiologists, tech and business experts.
Our goal is to Integrate SmartECG to EU healthcare systems by 2022 and globally.
For patients SmartECG means faster diagnosis and better treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Today, it is common that GP’s will limit the number of patients they refer to the tests since they know that the waiting lists are too long already (suppressed demand).
The SmartECG is expected to increase primary care level specialists’ competencies in early ECG diagnosing and for requesting more specific consultations from specialist physicians.
SmartECG automatic data analysis and pre-selection can reduce the total data amount by 99% and present physicians only the most relevant bits of analysis data. This enables to perform 2-3 times longer and more detailed ECG analysis
Based on our private studies using data from Finland (2013), about 70% of long-term ECG consultation reports do not recommend secondary care studies and they can be avoided by more competent primary care analysis. This will reduce healthcare waiting lists, avoid duplicating analysis and lower the treatment cost per patient. It is expected that by 2020, around 46% of long ECG analysis are done at primary care level.
The consulting specialists that provide primary care physicians the cardiac consultations needed, will be paid for per each remote consultation, depending on their set cost and rewarded either monthly or quarterly, depending on the number of their completed consultations.
Our goal is to create automatic plug-and-play compatibility for 80% of ECG analysis equipment in primary care level and achieve full compatibility with most eHealth systems in targeted countries by 2020.
