Deal allows global cardiac device manufacturer to enhance its offerings in the U.S. with Implicity’s cloud-based and AI-driven universal cardiac remote monitoring platform to provide high-value services to healthcare providers
Cambridge, Mass., May 27, 2021 – Implicity, a leader in remote patient monitoring software and cardiac data management solutions, announced a distribution agreement with MicroPort CRM, a major medical device player that develops state-of-the-art pacemakers, implantable defibrillators and ECG diagnostic solutions for the treatment and management of cardiac rhythm disorders and heart failure. Under the deal, MicroPort CRM can sell and distribute Implicity’s innovative, cloud-based solution in the United States as part of its remote patient monitoring offerings with a new digital service that allows cardiologists and electrophysiologists to seamlessly manage data being collected by various cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs).
“We are excited to partner with Implicity and their cloud-based remote monitoring platform, which creates a more efficient and comprehensive workflow for healthcare providers to manage patients with CIEDs. Our teams have worked closely to better integrate MicroPort’s CIED data into Implicity’s platform, enabling Implicity to be the best suited third-party platform for our customers when it comes to the remote monitoring of MicroPort CIED implants,” said Aamir Mahmood, Vice President, MicroPort Americas.
Implicity provides a cloud-based and AI-driven universal cardiac remote monitoring platform that aggregates data from CIEDs across all manufacturers (Abbott, Biotronik, Boston Scientific, Medtronic and MicroPort) and manages the entire clinical and administrative workflow thus enabling medical centers to scale their cardiac remote monitoring practices and optimize their revenues. The solution also integrates patient clinical data from the electronic health record (EHR) systems and other sources. The combined information is then automatically analyzed by the technology to determine true high priority events (those that warrant further action) – thus providing a more meaningful and efficient alert management.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with MicroPort CRM. This distribution partnership will help us reach out to fast growing number of healthcare providers that need to scale their cardiac remote monitoring practices, cope with the data tsunami from cardiac implants and improve patient outcome,” said Dr. Arnaud Rosier, electrophysiologist, CEO and founder of Implicity.
