KP West LA Pilots Mobile EKG

Smart phones now have another use for a growing number of  KP West LA members with heart conditions. Instead of lying on an exam table  wearing sticky electrodes, members can check their electrical heart activity  through a small piece of hardware attached to the back of any smart phone. “This  new technology is very cutting edge and provides real-time, accurate data in a  very convenient way,” says Oliver Wang, M.D., a cardiologist at  Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center. West LA has been piloting  this technology since May. Four physicians are currently involved in the pilot,  including co-sponsor of the pilot, Jeffrey Siegel, M.D., in Internal Medicine. More than 20 patients have already benefited from the  technology and the goal is to treat a total of 100 patients as part of the  pilot. “It really enhances the efficiency of care for patients, reducing the  need to send patients for traditional EKG readings, which is a big time saver  for patients,” Wang says. While Wang says it’s similar to other popular wearable  technologies, “this one does a much better job at bridging the divide between  the end user and providing medically actionable information.” Click here to read the full story.
