SEATTLE, Oct. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Bardy Diagnostics, Inc., (“BardyDx”), a leading provider of ambulatory cardiac monitoring technologies and custom data solutions, announced that it was selected as winner of the “Remote Monitoring in Arrhythmias” Technology and Innovation Pitch Session held as part of the Digital Health program at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2019. BardyDx earned this distinction for its Carnation Ambulatory Monitor (CAM™), the only P-wave centric™ ambulatory cardiac patch monitoring and arrhythmia detection device.
The pitch event was held on the Digital Health Stage as part of ESC’s focus on highlighting innovative technological applications in the field of e-cardiology and how they are impacting research and clinical practice, including wearable devices, mobile apps, electronic health records, and big data. Over a dozen pitch session events provided selected applicants the opportunity to present on their digital health technology, including categories in artificial intelligence, m-health, wearables, and remote monitoring.
“It is an honor for the CAM patch to be chosen and recognized as one of the best remote cardiac monitoring solutions from among those presenting by an audience of pioneering cardiac physicians and industry thought leaders,” said Ken Nelson, BardyDx Chief Commercial Officer and pitch session presenter. “We are committed to providing optimal P-wave focused digital health solutions that inform the modern-day cardiology practice.”
In addition, BardyDx Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Gust H. Bardy, MD was invited to speak at Heart Rhythm Congress (HRC) 2019 held at The International Convention Centre in Birmingham, UK. As part of the AF Association Symposia’s “Management of Atrial Fibrillation” Session, Dr. Bardy’s presentation, “The importance of P-Wave centric ECG monitoring analysis,” highlighted the significance of high-fidelity ECG tracings in accurate arrhythmia diagnosis and treatment decisions.
The CAM patch has experienced strong commercial demand due to its proprietary and innovative P-wave centric digital health platform, which provides clinicians diagnostically-accurate data recognized as superior to other patch and Holter monitoring technologies. Also, the CAM patch recently received 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Federal Drug and Administration to extend monitoring duration up to 14 days. The growing market recognition of the innovative P-wave centric CAM patch includes recently being named finalists for the UCSF Digital Health Awards for Best Cardiovascular Digital Diagnostic and the Medtech Insight Awards for Best Technological Diagnostic Innovation & Best Proof-of-Value of an Innovation. Earlier this year, BardyDx was also named the winner of the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Award for Best New Diagnostic Technology and the winner of the 2019 Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation in Remote Cardiac Monitoring.
