Heartstrings: November is National Epilepsy Month
At Lifelines, our mission is to change lives through neurodiagnostic innovation. This mission is especially meaningful to us during National Epilepsy Month. At Lifelines, our team has deep experience in caring for patients with epilepsy. Many of us began our careers in neurodiagnostic labs and/or epilepsy monitoring units (EMUs), and we credit those jobs for the compassion and passion we put into what we do at Lifelines. Over the past several years, we’ve been at the forefront of bringing the EMU into the homes of patients with Cloud-based monitoring.
There has been incredible progress made in technology and treatments for epilepsy patients, especially over the past 20+ years, when EEGs shifted from being recorded on paper to being recorded digitally.
At Lifelines, we are truly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with our Cloud-based technology, and I expect these innovations will continue to benefit not only those with epilepsy, but many disorders and conditions where EEG can provide great benefit.
Soon we will be entering the hospital clinical market with our new products, bringing Lifelines iEEG to inpatients. This is an extraordinary journey for our company, and we are excited to be introducing this technology to more patients and clinicians. This is a great reminder of the opportunity we have through the work we do, to continue to strive for the excellence needed for accurate diagnosis of patients with epilepsy.
