Preventice Solutions Cardiac Event Monitoring Company
Preventice is a cardiac diagnostic service company specializing in cardiac event monitoring services with their proprietary peel & stick cardiac event monitoring sensor called the BodyGuardian. Preventice quickly emerged in the cardiac event monitoring market after their merger with US market leader eCardio. The merger with eCardio enabled immediate expansion into all forms of ambulatory cardiac monitoring including Holter monitoring, cardiac event monitoring, post event monitoring and mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) monitoring.
Preventice Approach to Cardiac Event Monitoring
Preventice offers traditional cardiac event monitoring services (similar to predecessor eCardio) by providing medical facilities with their monitoring solution at little or no charge. The billing & reimbursement structure can be flexible but most often Preventice will bill for the technical component and the medical facility will bill for the setup (hook up) and the physician interpretation. The traditional ‘service model’ for cardiac event monitoring continues to be attractive option to medical facilities in the industry as most medical facilities will not make the investment to have 24/7/365 coverage.
Competitive Advantage in Event Monitoring
Preventice has several competitive advantages. One of the distinct advantages is their innovative peel & stick cardiac monitoring sensor. Although the market is surging with new patch technologies, Preventice was one of the first to develop such technology enabling them to make greater strides to advancing the clinical applications of this peel & stick patch. Through the BodyGuardian Remote Patient Monitoring system, Preventice now offers the peel & stick sensor for mobile cardiac telemetry monitoring.
Another competitive advantage for Preventice is their recent investment from Boston Scientific. Like many other large device companies such Medtronic & St Jude, Boston Scientific made the move to enter the diagnostic space to complement their implantable device technologies. Boston Scientific is a well-known name in the cardiac arena which in theory could be a big advantage for growth for Preventice.
