Is someone looking at the data?
Yes, there are QA technicians who review the data to confirm the accuracy of the algorithm trigger and to identify any event that meets the physician notification criteria. The QA techs will only confirm the trigger and will contact the prescribing physician for any events meeting the criteria.
Does your subscription model satisfy the 24/7 monitoring requirement to allow me to bill globally?
Yes, as part of the $439.00 per device subscription fee InfoBionic provides QA staff to review algorithm triggers for accuracy and to alert the physician when an event meets the notification criteria. The practice is responsible for providing the service comparable to an IDTF, including accepting, creating or rejecting events, creating reporting, managing physician notification criteria, enrolling patients and managing devices, covering 24/7 for notifications and providing a diagnosis at the end of service.
I get full disclosure with my current provider. What the difference with the InfoBionic device/software?
There is no other company that provides 24/7 full disclosure data to the physician. Although there are companies that say they have 24/7 full disclosure data, the reality is that their monitors collect the data but do not send the full disclosure data, but rather send only the event triggers. For these companies, if you need additional ECG data you have to call and request the data. The companies will then attempt to obtain the data which in some cases can take hours or even days and is not always available even when requested. Our 24/7 ECG data is available to you in your office through the MoMe® Kardia software. There is no waiting and hoping you can get what you need, it is there for you to access immediately.
I pay about the same for my current service; what am I missing?
We charge $439.00 PER device and NOT per patient. Typically, you are paying a per patient fee and likely purchased the device. Purchasing a device does not give the practice the ability to bill globally as the technical portion requires much more. In addition, Medicare has strict rules around “marking up” any fees paid for a service. If you are under this model, ask you current provider to put in writing that you are able to bill Medicare globally.
