New post-cryptogenic stroke remote telemetry study demonstrates increased atrial fibrillation detection and USD 4 million in cost savings using initial Philips BioTel Heart MCOT monitoring

  • As an initial remote monitoring diagnostic approach, Philips BioTel Heart MCOT detected 4.6 times more patients with atrial fibrillation compared to implantable loop recorder alone
  • Almost eight times lower costs were achieved with improved detection rates and reduction of secondary stroke risk
  • Remote cardiac monitoring via the MCOT patch reduced the total cost per patient with detected atrial fibrillation by USD 198,909 compared to monitoring with ILR only
  • Findings validate 30-day remote cardiac monitoring program as cost-effective standard of care for cryptogenic stroke patients compared to ILR alone
