14:50 EDTBSXBoston Scientific's LATITUDE demonstrated reduction in mortality/hospitalization
Patients using the Boston Scientific Corporation LATITUDE Remote Patient Management system with wireless telemetry demonstrated significantly lower mortality and fewer hospitalizations than patients with LATITUDE-compatible devices who were not followed on the system, according to results from the PREDICt-RM study. The results were presented at Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society's 35th Annual Scientific Sessions in San Francisco. PREDICt-RM demonstrated a 33% relative reduction in the risk of death in patients with Boston Scientific ICDs and CRT-Ds who were remotely monitored via the LATITUDE wireless remote monitoring system, compared to Boston Scientific ICD and CRT-D patients who were not remotely monitored. Additionally, these patients experienced a 19% relative reduction in hospitalizations for any cause. The study outcomes were presented by Dr. Joseph Akar, associate professor of medicine at Yale University and the Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation, CORE, in New Haven, CT, and are a result of a research collaboration between Yale CORE, the American College of Cardiology, ACC, and Boston Scientific. "The PREDICt-RM results demonstrate improved outcomes for those ICD and CRT-D patients using the LATITUDE wireless Remote Patient Management system," said Dr. Joseph Akar. "Despite the widespread availability of this technology, we know that it is underutilized. Our hope is that this study may inform clinical practice guidelines and promote the routine use of this technology in daily practice."
