BioTel Heart was the ﬁrst company to provide heartbeat-to-heartbeat ECG monitoring service, analysis and response for patients at home or away, every hour of every day. BioTel Heart’s MCOT is the most accurate and most studied arrhythmia monitoring detection system, providing near real-time arrhythmia detection with rate, rhythm, AF with p-wave analysis and a QRS morphology algorithm. MCOT is the only monitoring device proven to detect atrial fibrillation with 100 percent sensitivity and 100 percent positive predicitivity in the detection of ≥30-second AF episodes, and has been validated by clinical evidence from 41 studies, abstracts and articles. Certified cardiac technicians review findings and comprehensive clinical reports for MCOT in a HIPAA-protected, online system and are available every hour of every day. Additionally, through BioTelemetry’s recent acquisition of Geneva Health Solutions, it focuses on workflow solutions, including EMR implementations with all major EMR systems, helping cardiology providers manage the data deluge from cardiac devices, including implantable loop recorders (ILRs).
