Healthcare: AT&T Partners with Zywie for Remote Cardiac Monitors

By Ken Briodagh February 23, 2017

In a recent announcement, AT&T and Zywie have set out to help physicians diagnose and treat patients with cardiovascular disease. The companies have said that AT&T will provide wireless connectivity for the ZywiePro cardiac remote monitoring solution which will run on AT&T Control Center.

“Network reliability is critical when wirelessly connecting medical and health devices” said Steve Burger, area VP, Connected Health, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T. “Zywie has entrusted us to provide the highly secure wireless connectivity needed to make remote monitoring possible."

AT&T and Zywie have set out to offer secure, accessible monitoring for those with the disease and plan to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to help in that goal, while also changing the healthcare industry by securely delivering valuable data in near real-time. The ZywiePro solution uses mobile and cloud technology to detect cardiovascular arrhythmias in patients, and then sends doctors detailed diagnostics of the cardiovascular health of their patients.

“Zywie is committed to transforming cardiac patient monitoring, making it easier for patients to be diagnosed properly, leading to more efficient care and reduced costs,” said Emir Muhovic, VP of Sales, Zywie Inc.

ZywiePro is designed to be convenient, easy to use and flexible by providing Holter, Event, or Mobile Cardiac Telemetry in one device. It can monitor the heart’s activity for a minimum of 24-hours and a maximum of 30 days. The device captures potential rhythm irregularities and wirelessly transmits them as they occur over the AT&T network.

“We are constantly looking for ways to make the ZywiePro solution better and collaborating with AT&T has provided the level of confidence that we expect in transmitting data securely and being able to scale,” said Alex Armstrong, COO and Founder of Zywie Inc.

The ZywiePro eliminates the need for patients to make multiple office visits for adjustments to their enrollments.
