TEL AVIV, Israel & ZURICH & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SHL Telemedicine Ltd. (NASDAQ: SHLT, SIX: SHLTN;) ("SHL” or the “Company”), a leading provider and developer of advanced personal telemedicine solutions, is pleased to announce that initial results from trials conducted by the Mayo Clinic (as part of a previously announced collaboration) and by Imperial College London will be featured in two upcoming presentations at the Imperial Vulnerable Plaque and Patient Meeting 2023 (VPM). Both trials relate to the utilization of SHL's patented and FDA cleared SmartHeart® 12-lead ECG technology for remote monitoring of post-MI (heart attack) patients at home.
These presentations are both scheduled during Session 4 on Day 3 (20 September 2023) of the conference, and can be attended virtually for free:
- Naseer Alshahrani, BSEMS MSc, in collaboration with Dr. Ramzi Khamis from Imperial College London, will discuss initial results from the TELE-ACS randomized control study, showcasing the benefits of telemedicine in post-ACS (Acute Coronary Syndrome) care; and
- Dr. Joerg Hermann from the Mayo Clinic will discuss initial results from the HELP-MI randomized control study, that evaluates the incidence of emergency department visits, rehospitalizations and MACE (Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events), and cost–effectiveness over a period of 90 days following the first hospitalization for heart attack for patients using SmartHeart® 12 lead ECG. Notably, 12 Lead ECG is the gold standard ECG for diagnosing heart attack.
"For years now, we have established and proven our technology’s value for Post MI (heart attack) patients, including significant reductions in mortality and readmission rates. The underlying hypothesis of the HELP-MI and TELE-ACS trials is that the telemonitoring of patients at home, with the use of SmartHeart® 12 lead ECG, may decrease general and cardiac emergency department presentation and hospital readmission rates, and at a lower healthcare utilization cost compared to patients with standard therapy alone” said Erez Nachtomy, CEO of SHL Telemedicine. “We are excited and optimistic that the outcomes of these new studies, in collaboration with two esteemed healthcare institutions, will present results that reflect SHL’s accumulated experience in this field, and that our SmartHeart® platform will have important clinical implications for telemedicine and remote patient monitoring.”
