The Health Monitoring Services (HMS) division of Enlighten Health has provided expert ambulatory cardiovascular testing for more than 20 years. Through a comprehensive cardiovascular services package, physicians can improve patient care while controlling expenses and reducing routine referrals.
Depending on need, Health Monitoring Services offers physicians several flexible service options that can be adapted for each cardiovascular package.
Equipment is provided to physicians when a Health Monitoring Services (HMS) service agreement is in place. This agreement allows physicians to keep equipment in their offices as long as HMS provides analysis services.
Equipment is also provided to physicians on an as-needed basis for those clients whose need for ambulatory services is infrequent.
After-hours services are offered to physicians who provide 30-day event monitoring to their patients but do not have the resources to maintain constant coverage. HMS steps in to take calls from those patients around the clock—weekends and holidays included.
Health Monitoring Services provides and maintains all equipment necessary for testing.
Holter results are analyzed to identify a wide array of physiological events, including:
The patient wears a Holter monitor for 24 to 48 hours, and data are recorded on cassette tapes (analog) or digital chips. Results, normally available within 24 hours of receipt of the Holter recording, can be sent to the physician via facsimile, telephone or electronic data transfer. Full disclosure printouts, heart rate variability and ST segment analysis are available on request.
In addition to offering affordable and efficient services, our extensive business experience in the health care industry allows us to offer flexible billing alternatives in a unified billing and pricing structure.
Health Monitoring Services offers multiple results delivery options with rapid results reporting.
The resting ECG is the standard procedure used for initial cardiovascular assessment. Health Monitoring Services provides customers with digital ECG equipment that can simultaneously acquire 10 seconds of ECG data in each of the 12 leads. The data are stored in the machine until transmitted via standard telephone lines to EHS centralized online ECG database.
Patient-activated event monitoring is a noninvasive cardiac procedure that helps physicians diagnose and evaluate transient symptoms that may be cardiac in origin, such as the following:
Event monitoring may also be employed
Quality, state-of-the-art looping and nonlooping cardiac event monitors are made available to physicians as part of the HMS service agreement.
Data are transmitted via standard telephone lines, and results are available for immediate transmission to physicians. Results can be sent via facsimile, telephone or electronic data transfer. Physicians can establish their own critical benchmarks for emergency notification.
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring can assist the physician in managing hypertension by recording multiple readings throughout a 24-hour period. ABPM is efficient in evaluating blood pressure in a variety of situations, including the following:
Patients wear a small recording unit that is programmed to take systolic and diastolic readings at physician-determined intervals for as many as 250 oscillometric measurements. Data are downloaded from the physician’s office via modem to HMS’s receiving station. A computer-generated report with graphics is ready for transmission to the physician within minutes of receipt of data. Results are usually returned to the physician via facsimile but can be returned through commercial carrier.
