AMA Grants New Category III CPT Code to Premier Heart's Multifunction CardioGram(TM) (MCG)
Date:7/13/2009

PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Premier Heart, LLC today announced that the CPT Editorial Panel of the American Medical Association has granted a CPT Category III code to Premier Heart's Multifunction CardioGram(TM) (MCG) system. MCG is the World's first Internet based, non-invasive, stress, radiation and drug free computational electrophysiologic system used for interactive online diagnosis. The MCG is intended as an aid for bridging physician experts with diagnosing physicians via the web in order to facilitate the making of timely and more accurate diagnoses.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for over 7 million deaths annually. In 2005, 445,687 Americans died as the direct results of CAD, this year an estimated 1.26 million Americans will have a new or recurrent coronary attack.

"Earlier and more accurate detection is the key to preventing advanced heart disease and premature deaths such as NBC's Tim Russert and cable TV's Billy Mays," said Joseph Shen, M.D., founder and co-developer of the MCG technology. "Because of its fundamentally unconventional mathematical approach MCG represents a paradigm shift in heart disease diagnosis. Its ease of use and better accuracy will save lives and bring much needed cost-savings to the world's cardiovascular healthcare markets."

The following uncompensated endorsements are made by our physician clients:

"Being able to accurately diagnose coronary heart disease in a symptomatic patient without the need for an invasive procedure represents significant progress," said John Strobeck, M.D., cardiologist, Medical Director of the Heart-LungCenter, Hawthorne, NJ, and Co-Editor of the journal Congestive Heart Failure. "The Multifunction CardioGram is able to detect the presence of relevant coronary stenosis with higher sensitivity, specificity and negative predictive values than conventional diagnostic modalities in populations with a documented low pretest likelihood of coronary disease." (International Journal of Medical Sciences April 2009 6(4):143-155)

Charles Miceli, M.D., a cardiologist who has been using MCG technology for over a year in his private practice on Long Island, New York, endorses this powerful new diagnostic tool: "In my practice, the MCG test is invaluable ... there is a definite role for the MCG in the accurate, non-invasive detection of coronary artery disease."

Premier Heart offers the MCG system in two affordable models: a portable device for physician offices and a medical pushcart for institutional users. All MCG systems incorporate user-friendly data acquisition/transmission software, Premier Heart's proven server based systems analysis technology, and a secure Internet enabled reporting tool for physicians to perform differential diagnosis and disease severity score calculations.
