Zio by iRhythm Shows Significantly Higher Documentation of Atrial Fibrillation and Atrial Flutter Compared to Holter Monitors, Event Monitors

February 28, 2022 – iRhythm Technologies, Inc., a leading digital healthcare solutions company focused on the advancement of cardiac care, announced that the results of the KP-Rhythm2 study, titled “Diagnostic yield, outcomes and resource utilization with different ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring strategies,” were published in the American Journal of Cardiology (AJC). While earlier peer-reviewed studies have found Zio XT to be better than Holter and event monitors in the detection of arrhythmias, the KP-Rhythm2 study, led by Kaiser Permanente and supported by a research grant from iRhythm Technologies, Inc., is the first study to address specifically Zio XT patch vs. a 30-day event monitor yielding similar diagnostic yield for atrial fibrillation (AF)/ atrial flutter (AFL) ≥30 seconds in a general population of adults without known prior AF/AFL.

“It’s been demonstrated that Holter monitors often result in repeat testing, longer time to diagnosis, increased costs of healthcare, and a delay to clinical intervention,” said iRhythm CEO Quentin Blackford. “This latest clinical research further validates that monitoring with Zio by iRhythm leads to better diagnostic yield and aids in more accurate diagnoses.”
