Geneva Health Solutions (GHS), the leading cloud-based technology platform and service for managing data from implantable cardiac devices, has formalized its internal training systems by launching Geneva University, a business unit within GHS. Geneva University will be focused on the continuous improvement of all clinical and administrative processes.
“Implantable cardiac device remote monitoring requires distinct data analytics skills to properly review arrhythmia data,” said Yuri Sudhakar, CEO of GHS. “Geneva University enriches the skillset of our cardiac device technicians, so they can achieve the highest standards in cardiac remote monitoring.”
Geneva University is being led by Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer Manish Wadhwa M.D. FHRS, Clinical Advisor Nicolas T. Skipitaris M.D. FHRS and Chief Nursing Officer Debra Halligan RN. GHS has brought together a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, technicians and technologists who have developed best practices for remote monitoring of cardiac implantable devices.
“We intend for Geneva University to become part of the ecosystem of teaching organizations that have created certifications within the cardiac device space,” said Dr. Wadhwa. “In providing the GHS remote monitoring service to over 60 practices, our composite experience has allowed development of a system for training and continuing education which ensures the delivery of the highest caliber service.”
Manish Wadhwa, M.D. FHRS is a Cardiac Electrophysiologist specialist in private practice in San Diego, CA. Dr Wadhwa earned his medical degree from the Penn State University-Thomas Jefferson Medical College Six-year BSc-M.D. Program and completed his training in Cardiac Electrophysiology at the University of California at San Diego.
