Heart attacks are the single biggest killer in the United States. HeartWatch is a new heart attack detection service that will dramatically improve a patient's chances of surviving a heart attack.
The Heart Watch Remote Cardiac Care Service helps patients determine within five minutes if they are having a heart attack or potential cardiac problem so they can obtain quick treatment.
Today, patients wait too long from the onset of symptoms to when they seek help. As a result, many people die from coronary events that shouldn't.
HeartWatch offers a new service that makes it easy and convenient for people to check their symptoms at their earliest cause for concern from anywhere, at any time -- thereby reducing the response time from onset of symptoms to treatment.
HeartWatch members are provided a small, easy-to-use, FDA-approved handheld EKG device, capable of recording a 12-lead EKG (same quality as doctors use in their offices and in hospitals) and sending results via telephone. Members have
immediate, 24-hour access to the HeartWatch Call Center, which is staffed with cardiologists and a supporting medical staff.
Leading cardiologists in the U.S. have helped to design the service for HeartWatch and endorse its potential to save lives and create a new standard of care.
