February 19, 2019 — Ochsner Health System in Louisiana recently announced a new partnership with device data management and remote monitoring vendor Geneva Health Solutions (GHS) for implantable cardiac devices. This partnership marks the first time the GHS cloud-based technology platform and remote monitoring service for patients with cardiac implants will be utilized in the region, which includes Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. The GHS system will drive full automated scheduling and reporting in collaboration with Ochsner’s established Epic electronic medical record (EMR).
Todd Mule, vice president, cardiology service line, Ochsner Health System, said, “Ochsner is committed to investing in patient-centric technology and are confident that partnering with Geneva Health Solutions will further enhance what we are able to offer our patient and coordinated care team through our electronic medical records platform, Epic. Ochsner’s investment in and enthusiasm for technology offers our patients enhanced coordination of care, convenience and better results.”
Millions of Americans have implanted cardiac devices. Patients with these devices — such as pacemakers, defibrillators and loop recorders — transmit critical cardiac data from their implanted device from the comfort of their homes to the provider via the cloud. These transmissions allow providers to monitor their patients proactively for both routine device follow-up and alerts regarding device issues or clinical events, like atrial fibrillation and other indicators of heart failure. The GHS patent-pending platform aggregates cardiac device data from all major device manufacturers’ remote monitoring portal, in-office checks and ER visits. The GHS remote monitoring service helps providers manage the incoming data in an outpatient setting.
