In case you missed it, our very own Dr. Edo Paz was featured on Now This talking about the ECG app on the new Apple Watch 4. Watch the video here. We know that many will be checking their ECG and wanting someone to help interpret the findings. To help people like you take advantage of this new technology, Heartbeat is making it easy for you to get a STAT read on your very own ECG by offering free interpretations of screen shots. Post it to Twitter and tag @heartbeat with hashtag #ShowUsYourECG and we’ll have your read back in no time.

Everyone has been there… you went to the doctor, had some tests, and then nothing. You call the office and get a report with some numbers next to ranges of normal values and are just left wondering. Instead of leaving people wondering, Heartbeat is committed to helping people truly be a part of their healthcare team. That’s why we’ve created the Heartbeat Results page on your account dashboard that you can access by registering on our website! By logging into your Heartbeat dashboard, you can see your results clearly anytime. Better yet, next to that easy-to-understand explanation of your testing you will always find a picture of any tests you might be curious about or want to share with your primary doctor, such as your electrocardiogram (ECG). If you still have questions, Heartbeat’s team is always available to help you figure out what those results mean for you. Come to one of our two locations in person by booking online, email us, or call/text us anytime at (646) 586-9908.

Heartbeat is excited to share our recent press from CNBC. Dr. Wessler, Heartbeat’s CEO, says, “I wanted to figure out whether we could go from a reactive to a proactive state.” Although Heartbeat started in 2016 and has been seeing patients for only about 1 year, we are well on our way toward our mission to make heart disease a thing of the past. Through a multidisciplinary team of doctors, engineers, designers, data scientists, patient experience experts, and most importantly you, we are excited to offer a full range of cardiovascular care focused on preventing heart disease at any age.

The new and improved check-in process at Heartbeat will be made available in October and will allow your doctor’s visit to be more about seeing the doctor and less about frustrating paperwork and filling in forms. New patients at Columbus Circle and Upper East will be able to register at home before their first visit. By doing that, you’ll be able to spend less time checking in and filling out forms while also helping to prevent errors that often occur with data entry. The new and improved check-in system will also guide you through a process to help us personalize your experience at Heartbeat.

Paperless
Traditional healthcare is transacted over reams of paper and unnecessarily complex software. We believe that we can reduce the processing time by building a paper-free office and simplifying workflows. The typical stack of forms has been replaced with a simple step-by-step walkthrough on an iPad. Scanning IDs and insurance cards with the built-in camera is fast and effortless. This update also lets our staff put a face to your name and ensures that the insurance information is entered correctly the first time.

Smart Suggestions
We challenged the team to go beyond the blinking cursor. Now when asking for preferred pharmacies and labs, the app will suggest convenient options with a partial address or name. The new app will also let you share information about your other doctors so we can keep your whole healthcare team in the loop.

Feedback
We are just beginning to scratch the surface on how we plan to use technology to make seeing a cardiologist easier… and dare we say, even fun! Let any Heartbeat team member know when you like something and tell us how we can make it better by dropping us a line at hello@heartbeathealth.com.

Heartbeat Health and New York Physicians have joined forces! Dr. Edo Paz, Heartbeat’s Clinical Director, has now opened up our second location inside of New York Physicians at 59th and Madison. He’s there three days per week, making access to top-notch cardiology consultations and testing easier than ever for our East Side patients. For those who prefer to visit us at our Columbus Circle location, that option is still available.

Since opening our doors, we have helped more than 300 patients and can’t wait to keep growing our practice. As a company focused on heart health, we know that starts with you, our patients, and we’re always here for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
