Frost & Sullivan has selected Raytel Cardiac Services as the recipient of the 2007 North American Award for Market Leadership in the cardiac monitoring and diagnostic services market, by commending the company for its dominant presence in pacemaker services and its significance in other ambulatory monitoring segments. Pacemaker monitoring is an established service market segment in ambulatory monitoring. These services stem from the need to routinely get checkups on implanted pacemakers. As some checkups can be accomplished simply over the phone, it has created a lucrative market for health service providers. According to Frost sources, Raytel Cardiac is also offering various value-added components to its services, for example, the large variety of options in payment and service. Beginning with basic data acquisition from the device, Raytel’s services include the interpretation of the report by a consulting physician, if requested. Moreover, the company has gained recognition for maintaining the highest level of quality of technicians and reporting services. It also provides everyday notification to physicians to meet the prescribed criteria for their services.
