MEDISYNC® STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Hattiesburg Clinic is currently recruiting eligible participants for the following studies:

1. Stroke Detection Device Study

Purpose: To learn if there are better ways to identify irregular heartbeats and protect older adults from stroke.

Description: Atrial fibrillation/atrial flutter (or “Afib”) is an irregular heartbeat that is common in older adults. Because Afib is often undetected and increases the risk of stroke, it is important to find it early.

If Afib is found, your provider will review the report and decide if treatment (such as blood thinners) is needed.

We are doing this study to see if screening for atrial fibrillation/atrial flutter will help reduce the risk of stroke in older adults. People who join will be randomly assigned (like a coin flip) to wear the Zio heart monitor patch for 2 weeks or no monitor. Your Medicare claims will be reviewed for up to 5 years to find out if you had a stroke, bleeding or were prescribed a blood thinner.

You may be able to participate if you:

  • Are at least 70 years old
  • Are on Medicare A & B
  • Have no history of atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter
  • Don’t have a pacemaker or other implanted cardiac device
  • Are not on blood thinners (other than aspirin)

What to Expect:

Enroll in the study (at home or in-person) and receive a $25 gift card for participation.

Be randomly assigned to one of two groups:

  • Group 1: Wear the Zio XT Patch monitor for 2 weeks
  • Group 2: Usual care (no monitor)
  • Group 1 will mail the monitor back in and receive $50 gift card
  • For Group 1, the results of the monitor will be reviewed by your doctor
