Implantable Cardiac Monitor (ICM)

Implantable cardiac monitors (ICM) are small electrophysiology (EP) devices that used for long-term monitoring of a patient's heart electrical activity to detect arrhythmias. The technology can eliminate the need for a bulkly external Holter monitor that requires wire leads attached to the patient. ICMs can be inserted under the skin during and office visit and record cardiac data continuously for up to 4.5 years. 

Integrating data from an array of implantable EP devices from different vendors can be difficult or require disconnected silos of data for different vendors. One solution that was recently introduced to integrate data from various vendors is the Optimize EP software, which allows viewing data from all device vendors in one platform to streamline workflows.
