Faster, More Efficient Acute Care

Improving Care Pathways & Patient Outcomes

Today’s emergency departments (ED) face the challenge of delivering high-quality and timely acute care amid increasing patient volume and limited hospital resources. With cardiac device patients living longer, their visits to the ED are likely to increase.

Designed with these challenges in mind, our comprehensive portfolio of LATITUDE patient management products work together to give you rapid diagnostic data and 24/7 access to Boston Scientific technical analysis and expertise. These innovative tools can help you quickly triage cardiac device patients to the appropriate level of care, reduce the time spent in the ED and increase patient satisfaction.
