Setting a New Standard of Care
With Quality Education

Geneva University is a division within Geneva Health Solutions commissioned to instruct attendees on providing the highest quality of care for Cardiac Remote Monitoring patients. Remote Care Technicians come from different educational backgrounds and experiences. Geneva University was borne out of the best practices developed and implemented by the Geneva Clinical Leadership Team and is based on a combination of deep expertise of Cardiac Electrophysiology and the Cardiac Rhythm Management device space and has been honed through the delivery of Geneva’s Remote Monitoring Services to practices and organizations across the United States. Geneva University establishes Remote Monitoring of implantable devices as a sub-specialty of the implantable cardiac device monitoring space and recognizes the discrete skillsets needed to care for these patients.

At Geneva University, we continue to build on our expertise from the thousands of transmissions which we process daily. We have leveraged our experience delivering a high-caliber remote monitoring service across the country to create a library of best practices for remote monitoring device management and for providing suggestions to our customers on how to enhance the quality of patient care.


Remote Monitoring for implantable cardiac devices has become the Standard of Care. Through Geneva’s collective experience with Remote Monitoring, we are establishing Geneva University as a sub-specialty for implantable cardiac device management:

  • Remote Monitoring data comes from disparate manufacturers. Technicians need to train across different devices and platforms and to understand the nuances of each device type
  • Technicians need to understand a combination of Pathophysiology, Telecommunications, and Health Information Technology when reviewing remote monitoring information
  • Technicians need to understand the complexities of alert management inherent with remote patient care
