Philips Launches Ambulatory Cardiac Monitoring Service in Spain

Royal Philips has announced the successful nationwide rollout of its ambulatory cardiac monitoring service in Spain using its unique ePatch wearable device coupled with its AI-driven Cardiologs analytics platform, with 14 Spanish healthcare providers using its ePatch extended wear Holter monitors to detect life-threatening arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation (AF).

Philips’ ePatch provides reliable data for up to 14 days of continuous monitoring and, when combined with Philips’ AI-driven Cardiologs analytics platform, provides the hospitals’ cardiology and neurology teams with an end-to-end solution that enhances their ability to detect and diagnose AF. In addition to Hospital Vall d’Hebron, where Philips’ ePatch is being used to detect AF in patients after discharge, other major hospitals in Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Alicante, Madrid, Cadiz and Navarra are conducting pilot projects to demonstrate the effectiveness of the device in cardiology and neurology. In total, more than 1500 patients are currently being monitored with Philips ePatch devices in Spain.

This innovative new service allows clinical teams to conveniently monitor patients as they go about their daily activities over an extended period of time, collecting real-life data that helps reveal the patient’s true condition,” said Miquel Barras, Ambulatory Monitoring & Diagnostics Lead for Philips in Spain.
