Deployed in The UK
- Broomwell-Healthwatch will deploy the REKA E100L solution (CE Mark approved) to serve UK’s private market and Britain’s National Health Service network
- REKA’s solution was chosen for its ease of use and efficient transmission of data, enabling immediate analysis and interpretation of results
United Kingdom, Singapore - 16th March 2015 - Britain’s largest electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation service Broomwell-Healthwatch Ltd (Broomwell) has deployed Singapore-based REKA Health Pte Ltd (REKA) cardiac monitors and cloud-based solutions to serve both the National Health Service (NHS) Primary Care and private market in the UK to detect arrhythmia.
Broomwell, whose cardiac-physiologists have successfully interpreted over 500,000 ECGs, currently offers mobile ECG recorder units for patients to wear 24-hours a day up to eight days. Broomwell is now expanding its arrhythmia detection offerings to include the E100L Digital Loop Event Monitor by REKA.
Episodes of arrhythmia, a heart condition whereby the heartbeat is irregular, can occur anytime, lasting anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours. The Digital Loop Event Monitor service is a seven-day home monitoring service, offered by Broomwell, to record the ECG of a patient that is experiencing arrhythmia.
The REKA E100L is able to record valuable ECG data before and after an arrhythmia episode experienced by a patient. The data recorded will be uploaded onto REKA’s cloud solution, providing cardiac-physiologists with insights to what triggers each episode. The E100L, which can fit into a pocket giving users mobility outside the hospital, allows users to quickly record an episode anywhere, when necessary.
Supported by REKA’s facility in the Netherlands, Broomwell is deploying REKA’s solution to enhance the operational efficiency of its cardiac professionals. Patients can also use a computer or mobile application to upload ECG recordings which can be immediately interpreted with the aid of online records.
Mr. Joshua Rowe, Chairman of Broomwell, said, ‘Now, we are well equipped with REKA’s solution to expand our services for arrhythmia. Our arrhythmia monitoring will be greatly enhanced by the ease of use and efficient transmission of data, inherent in the REKA system. REKA’s solution enables immediate analysis and interpretation of results by Broomwell’s expert cardiac clinicians.’
Mr. Tan Kae Yuan, CEO of REKA, said, ‘With REKA’s solution being deployed to serve the NHS market, our CE Mark approved E100L can benefit more heart patients in the UK while reducing the healthcare cost burden. We are honoured to support Broomwell for this exciting mobile health opportunity.’
