February 25, 2015 — The ScottCare Corp. announced its new novi patch Holter monitor will be available in the United States for the first time at the 2015 Scientific Sessions of the American College of Cardiology in San Diego, Calif., March 14-16.
The novi is a small advanced patch Holter recorder for use by cardiology practices, hospitals and independent diagnostic testing facilities. The device allows clinicians to quickly and easily identify abnormal heart rhythms for their patients while minimizing the patient preparation time required by traditional Holter monitors. When attached to the sternum the novi begins recording immediately and automatically shuts off upon removal.
The device improves patient compliance due to its discreet appearance and ease of use. The unit is less than 2 inches in size, weighs just half an ounce, is water resistant and uses a rechargeable built-in battery. The novi records for up to 72 hours utilizing a single disposable patch electrode that minimizes motion artifact, resulting in improved electrocardiogram (ECG) quality and more accurate analysis.
The novi is integrated with ScottCare’s HolterCare software, allowing clinicians to easily record and report on patients’ ambulatory ECG- and cardiac-related symptoms. Current ScottCare customers who already own Chroma or RZ153+ Holter recorders will be able to quickly integrate the novi and its data into their monitoring workflow.
