The SmartHeart®️ Hospital Readmission Reduction Program helps providers to decrease unnecessary cardiac readmissions at no financial risk. SmartHeart® provides 24/7, at-home monitoring for discharged cardiac patients by pairing the SmartHeart® portable 12-lead EKG with a national team of board-certified cardiologists on call for the patient. If a discharged patient in the program returns before 60 days, SmartHeart® charges the provider nothing.
After discharge, many cardiac patients experience high levels of stress which leads to anxiety, sleep deprivation, headaches, indigestion, difficulty breathing, and even more serious outcomes. Studies have shown that more communication between patient and provider post-discharge can significantly reduce the amount of stress on a patient. Using SmartHeart®, providers can give patients better communication and comfort while reducing the burden on staff in the facility.
