Impilo sat down with Jon Anderson, Head of US Sales, ABPM at Biobeat Technologies, Ltd., a seasoned professional with 18 years of experience in digital health and patch technology. Jon is dedicated to revolutionizing the vital monitoring patient care pathway, transforming in-patient monitoring, home monitoring, and disrupting 24hr Ambulatory Blood Pressure testing with a cuffless chest patch to support rpm heart health.


Q&A with Jon Anderson:


Can you explain how Biobeat's device and RPM system enable proactive intervention for patients at risk of heart-related complications?

Biobeat provides FDA cleared vital sign measurement on a chest patch and/or a watch. These easy form factors with automatic data transmission lower the patient compliance burden and drive actionable data for timely intervention. This allows physicians to make quick care decisions to change the patient's outcome prior to deterioration, resulting in improved care, lower cost, and lower readmission rates.


Are there specific metrics related to heart health that Biobeat's device focuses on, and how are these metrics used to inform patient care?

With hypertension being the underlying cause of many cardiac-related conditions, health systems have this as a quality metric focus. Biobeat is changing testing for hypertension management. Our cuffless blood pressure (monitor) allows care providers to see the blood pressure without the bias of cuff inflation while also providing home monitoring capturing blood pressure and vital data during a full 24-hour period. This allows care providers better insight into the root cause of hypertension and to see trending blood pressure during a full 24-hour period to make better decisions on treatment. Similarly, the vital signs could help physicians adjust treatment protocols in patients with heart failure and basically any other cardiovascular disease.


How has Biobeat's devices been instrumental in emergency cardiovascular situations, and can you share a specific example highlighting its impact on patient care outcomes?

As discussed, we are changing how physicians are screening for hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases, leading to quicker diagnosis and improved outcomes. Specific to emergency treatment, Biobeat has completed successful pilot applications for monitoring patients in the emergency waiting room to identify serious patient deterioration. In our last pilot, we monitored 75 selected patients over a 60-day period. Of the 75, 3 were expedited back to the ED and 1 was transferred directly to the ICU. Biobeat's vital sign monitoring is providing security to care providers and patients, staying in front of serious deterioration leading to improved care. Another successful example is the use of the Biobeat platform in hospital at-home programs, already showing reduced 30-day readmission rates, decreased in 30-day mortality, and early notification of potential deterioration, also related to potential emergency cardiovascular situations.


What support and resources does Biobeat offer to healthcare providers and patients to facilitate effective use of its RPM system for managing heart health?

The Biobeat technology is designed to simplify workflow and patient experience with a low-friction solution. Our 24hr ABPM Kit is a quick application requiring no patient interaction. The Chest patch is sending blood pressure and other physiological parameters every 15 mins. At the completion of 24hrs, a comprehensive ABPM report is automatically generated with no tech intervention or delays. The ABPM Chest patch is disposable, removing the burden of a patient having to return the device to the hospital. Biobeat's customer support team can provide quick help on any device or report question. Similarly, the Biobeat platform transforms the way hospital at-home programs can be implemented, for patients with various cardiovascular diseases.


In your view, what role will RPM-enabled virtual cardiovascular care play in shaping the future of cardiovascular healthcare delivery?

Staying in front of cardiac-related conditions such as hypertension and congestive heart failure is critical to improving a patient’s long-term outcome and lowering the cost of care. Virtual care solutions will allow care providers to stay closer to patients outside the hospital. With solutions providing actionable data, care providers are able to intervene with treatment prior to patient deterioration.


 

Discover How RPM Can Transform Heart Health

As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, RPM-enabled virtual cardiovascular care is set to play a pivotal role in improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs. Virtual care solutions are at the forefront of this transformation, empowering healthcare providers to deliver proactive care and intervene swiftly when needed. With the continued advancement of RPM technology, the future of cardiovascular healthcare delivery looks promising, with improved patient outcomes and enhanced quality of care on the horizon.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is a meaningful approach for supporting cardiovascular care, offering continuous monitoring and early detection of potential issues. Impilo's logistical support further enhances this by managing device distribution and connectivity, allowing healthcare providers to prioritize patient care. This combined effort not only improves patient outcomes but also streamlines the delivery of cardiovascular healthcare, ensuring a more efficient and effective system.
