Arrowhealth and Lohman Technologies expand their partnership
MEMPHIS, Tenn. and PEWAUKEE, Wis., April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Arrowhealth, a technology company specializing in cross-platform remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology, and Lohman Technologies, makers of hōm ecg+, today announced an extension of their partnership.
In 2021, Arrowhealth partnered with Lohman to integrate hōm ecg+ into the portfolio of remote monitoring tools it offered to a family medicine clinic, Care Memphis Clinic, in Memphis, TN. This ECG solution was a welcome addition to remote blood pressure, blood glucose and weight monitoring on the Arrowhealth RPM platform for the clinic. The certified medical assistant of the Care Memphis clinic, Melissa Fonerhad this to say, “Our patients and staff have benefited immensely from RPM. We had a missing data point when examining the full clinical picture of our cardiac patient population and the hom ecg+ fill that void. It really changed the way we practice medicine for our patients.”
Thirty patients were enrolled in a 90-day pilot project at Memphis clinical and results from ECG data collection and use of ArrowHealth RPM technology were substantial (these results can be found in a white paper here: https://homecg-afib.com/in-the-news/). Based on these results, using Lohman’s advanced atrial fibrillation detection solution, Arrowhealth plans to expand its offering of the device to other clinical and hospital customers.
“All too often amazing technologies like hōm ecg+ are underutilized because the data is only accessible through email alerts or external portals. Who has time for that?” noted David Brodegard, CEO of Arrowhealth. “Any solution must keep both the patient experience and provider workflow in mind. We are excited to be able to deliver breakthrough technology like Lohman’s hōm ecg+ directly into the native EHR workflow of the clinic. It’s better for the provider, better for the patient, and most importantly, puts the technology in the hands of the patients who need it most.”
“This type of arrhythmia detection can enable early intervention and help prevent catastrophic sequelae associated with atrial fibrillation. Workflow improvements are an added benefit that help ensure that appropriate treatment plans are created on the accurate information base”, mentioned Jason DvorakPresident of Lohman Technologies. “This partnership benefits all parties and helps us achieve our shared goal of improving patient care.”
