At everbeat, we believe powerful technology can bring intimacy to the cardiologist – patient relationship. Doctors will have continuous access to patient data and behavior that can lead them to intervene and take steps to understand if a problem is developing, if the patient is not taking proper care of themselves, or even to encourage patients who have really taken their care plan compliance seriously.
The patient will have an ability to see how they are doing against a complex set of doctor’s instructions through the lens of a simple score. Through gentle reminders and positive feedback from their doctors and their family caregivers, the patient will take better care of themselves leading to better heart health. If they do start to see problems develop, they will know to contact their doctor proactively rather than wait 3 months for the next scheduled visit. Their doctor and their staff will see the same information at the same time and can also proactively contact the patient to evaluate next steps. Today, the patient may wait until they have a stroke, a heart attack or other serious symptoms to seek help. The everbeat platform provides a means to continuously monitor heart health and help the cardiologist see potential issues before a significant event occurs. And that will save lives, improve outcomes for the doctor and their ACO, and reduce total health care expenses. Everyone wins.
The key is accurate information presented to the cardiologist in an easy-to-use, risk-ranked manner. The everbeat Dashboard, designed by cardiologists for cardiologists, can modernize cardiac health care, dramatically streamline office operations, and restore patient intimacy even while the patient roster grows. That’s the power of technology.
