Date:6/24/2009

Collaboration will test remote wireless monitoring to prevent hospital readmissions for heart failure

SAN DIEGO, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The West Wireless Health Institute (WWHI), one of the world's first medical research organizations dedicated to advancing health and well-being through the use of wireless technologies, today announced it will collaborate with Corventis, Inc. for the Institute's first clinical research program. Corventis is a developer of wireless cardiovascular solutions designed to enable early detection, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular conditions.

Congestive heart failure is the leading reason for hospital admission in the United States, and recently it was shown that 26.9% of patients in the Medicare cohort are re-hospitalized within 30 days. The cost burden to the health system for these readmissions is profound and estimated to be in the range of $10 Billion per year.

With the newfound ability to monitor multiple highly relevant physiologic parameters on a continuous 24/7 basis -- such as heart rhythm, fluid status and respiratory rate -- there is the potential to markedly reduce the need for hospital readmissions among patients with heart failure. Corventis' remote monitoring wireless system was approved by the FDA in February 2009, which sets up the potential for a multicenter, randomized clinical trial. The trial will be spearheaded by the West Wireless Health Institute and led by Dr. Eric J. Topol, the Institute's chief medical officer. Dr. Topol is also chief academic officer at Scripps Health and holder of the Gary and Mary West Chair of Innovative Medicine.
