San Antonio Endovascular & Heart Institute First to Deploy Biotricity’s New Bioflux Remote Monitoring Device
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Biotricity Inc. (BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company dedicated to delivering innovative, biometric remote monitoring solutions, today announced that the San Antonio Endovascular & Heart Institute (SAEHi) – a practice specializing in diagnosing, treating, managing, and researching diseases and disorders of the heart and vascular system – deployed Biotricity’s Bioflux on April 6, 2018. SAEHi will leverage the real-time, high-precision mobile cardiac telemetry solution to assist in the diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias, enhance patient outcomes, improve patient compliance, and curb healthcare costs.
The Institute is headed by President and CEO Dr. R. Stefan Kiesz, a world-renowned interventional cardiologist who commented, “I love the simplicity the Bioflux technology provides for my patients, which should encourage greater compliance and improved data collection. The device fit seamlessly with our practice and didn’t interrupt our workflow whatsoever, in fact, it streamlined it. I’m also optimistic and excited about the prospects and applications of this platform in other medical markets serving outpatient treatments, and I believe this technology should be considered for post percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).”
The Bioflux system is designed to be a complete solution for cardiac monitoring and diagnosis, consisting of the Bioflux device, proprietary software, and a 24/7 monitoring center that merges seamlessly with physicians’ existing platforms and workflows. Unlike traditional cardiac monitoring solutions, Bioflux extends the support a patient receives at a care facility into the patient’s home. The device monitors a patient’s ECG in near real-time, constantly analyzing and collecting data on the device and periodically uploading to the cloud via embedded cellular technology.
“Bioflux helps healthcare professionals, like SAEHi, leverage advanced technology to transmit data as it happens,” said Dr. Bartlomiej Gora, clinical research coordinator at the Institute. “This not only facilitates data analysis and integration into our workflow, but also allows the patient to be diagnosed at home and to feel safer. At the end of the day, we are improving our patient-consumer outcomes because Bioflux provides actionable data and feedback.”
“We are thrilled to see our new solution at work with San Antonio Endovascular & Heart Institute, as they continue to build their reputation as an unparalleled innovator in heart disease diagnosis and treatment,” said Mr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Founder and CEO of Biotricity. “Bioflux was purposely built for cardiac patients who require active monitoring because, until now, short-term monitoring or admission into the hospital for long-term observation was the most accessible option.”
