New York-based LiveCare said in a news release that it integrated KardiaMobile 6L, a clinically-validated personal EKG device, within its LiveCare Link+ smart RPM gateway.
Through the integration, patients and caregivers will receive real-time EKG monitoring at home or in skilled nursing facilities, LiveCare said. Data aggregation of the AliveCor EKG data in concert with the LiveCare device and gateway propels LiveCare’s goal of delivering a fully automated RPM system for aiding geriatric patients across a range of chronic conditions, the company said.
“We are excited to partner with LiveCare,” AliveCor SVP of U.S. Healthcare Mark Bogart said in the release. “The integration of the KardiaMobile 6L EKG device with the Link+ Smart RPM Gateway will provide a more seamless real-time EKG experience for millions of geriatric patients both at home and in skilled nursing facilities all over the world.”
LiveCare added that the integrated platform will be provided to patients with no upfront cost and will rely on only a monthly subscription fee without a monthly commitment.
“The combination of AliveCor’s KardiaMobile 6L EKG with the LiveCare Link+ Smart RPM Gateway is a big win for patients and caregivers alike,” LiveCare CEO Peri Avitan said. “Remote geriatric patients will no longer have to struggle with having to sync multiple apps or deal with the hassles of pairing Bluetooth manually.
“This integration supports our ambition to save lives and keep geriatric patients at home longer while reducing unnecessary hospitalizations.”
