There Is a Better Way to Get a Standard 12-Lead ECG Test During the COVID-19 Pandemic, QT Medical launches the world’s first 12-lead ECG service for home use - Xpress ECG™
Today, there are various types of ECGs that doctors can order to
provide clear information about a patient’s cardiovascular wellness.
Xpress ECG is beneficial in minimizing the exposure to potential infections and allows for reimbursements 3-5x times higher than an office ECG test. For example, a typical office ECG test billed under CPT code 93000 reimburses $18 only. By using the Xpress ECG service, physicians can order a complete medical grade ECG test online at the current cost of $30. Using the new RPM codes (99457 and 99458) since this ECG test is done by patients at home, plus the interpretation code 93010, physicians can be reimbursed for up to $102 for each Xpress ECG test.
The QT Medical PCA 500 12-lead ECG system uses a unique wearable wrap that contains all the leads and eliminated the need to connect separate wire electrodes to the patient. The simplicfication of lead placement enables the system to be used by patients at home.
The facts are grim: One person dies from cardiovascular disease every 37 seconds in the United States. One of the most effective tests for the heart is the twelve-lead electrocardiogram (ECG).
Many fields of medicine are undergoing a transformation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as patients are kept away from clinics as much as possible.
