Sheba Video on Wearable Health Monitors Ranked in Top 25 Cardiology Videos in 2019

Sheba Video on Wearable Health Monitors Ranked in Top 25 Cardiology Videos in 2019
In a 12-minute video, Robert Klempfner, MD, Director of the Cardiovascular Prevention Institute at Sheba Medical Center, explains the use of wearable technologies to manage personalized, remote cardiac rehabilitation programs for patients.

Prof. Klempfner presented this topic at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference held in Orlando, FL. Based on Google Analytics of more than 475,000 video page views in 2019, his presentation ranked in the top 25 performing videos posted to the Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) website.

Sheba implemented the clinical use of an app that interfaces with various wearables and Bluetooth-enabled monitoring tools. Using the advanced devices, Sheba offers two different programs for cardiac rehabilitation – for heart failure patients and for regular patients without heart failure. The technologies enable Sheba’s doctors to acquire a range of data integrated on one dashboard – such as blood pressure, blood sugar, oxygen saturation, and the heart rate’s response to physical activity, with alerts to help the medical team manage each patient’s condition. The app transfers the data to an EMR (electronic medical record), which is a digital version of the patient’s personal medical files.

Currently, hundreds of patients are being monitored remotely, with no need for them to visit the hospital for sessions. As a result of these customized programs, both patient satisfaction and increased physical activity compliance have increased. These wearable technologies exemplify how Sheba continues to progress forward with the digital transformation of healthcare.
