The Datos Health solution was implemented at University of Rochester to remotely monitor their cardiovascular and heart failure patients for two studies through grants they received: MOVE-LVAD and Optimed GDMT ARM.
The University of Rochester is a healthcare institution located in Rochester, NY. Their mission is to provide highly advanced medical care, discovering cures for the world’s most challenging diseases, and educating future doctors and dentists. Their footprint in the northern New York region is comprised of Medical Education, Research and Patient Care Facilities. University of Rochester Hospitals include: Strong Memorial, Golisano Children’s Hospital, Highland Hospital, FF Thompson Hospital, Jones Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Himabindu Vidula, Medical Director of Heart Transplantation and Dr. Spencer Rosero, Director of the Clinical Research Center set out to find a remote care platform that had the capabilities they needed to monitor their cardiovascular and heart failure patients, many of whom utilize the LVAD (left ventricular assist device) to support heart functionality.
The goal of each study is to provide tailor-made exercise plans for each of their heart failure patients without having to increase caregiver capacity. Heart failure patients and LVAD patients are at unusually high risk for medical emergencies, continuous monitoring of these patients could significantly reduce fatalities and adverse events, and improve their quality of life. Additionally, personalized exercise and treatment plans assist in a quick and successful recovery after surgery. While every patient is different, exercise plans should reflect those differences.

Since 2015, Datos Health has supported the growing need to monitor and care for patients remotely while maintaining high-quality standards of care and patient satisfaction. The Datos Health platform enables quick and easy deployment of personalized remote care processes and workflows. The device agnostic solution facilitates connected care delivery across any clinical condition, patient profile, and treatment plan, significantly increasing patient engagement and helping to reduce adverse events. Datos Health can be used as a standalone platform or integrated with any EMR. Care teams can choose from pre-packaged remote care programs which can be customized as needed, or collaborate with their dedicated Datos Health Client Success manager to design their own program.
We were able to personalize the Datos Health app for our research study of home-based cardiac rehabilitation in patients supported by a left ventricular assist device. Using the app, we have been able to help our patients increase their daily activity level and overall health.– Dr. Vidula, University of Rochester
