Pricing transparency gets cloudier as health care costs soar
 

Earlier this fall, Highmark Inc. paid Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Institute $581 for doing a nuclear stress test for a patient. The insurer compensated UPMC Monroeville $1,540 for the same procedure — a common measure of how well the heart is working — in another patient.

Holter Monitor Testing


 

Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Institute uses ACS ultra-high resolution recorders to provide ambulatory holter monitor testing to our patients visiting our outpatient facility, as well as those in nursing and personal care homes. Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Institute employs the latest technology to maximize patient comfort while providing the highest quality diagnostic ECG waveform. Our ultra-high resolution recorders allow our physicians to record true pacer artifact, diagnose pacer function or malfunction, and verify pathological ST segment changes.

 

Our specially trained and certified personnel travel to nursing and personal care homes, and our patients' homes to connect the holter monitor, and pick it up the following day. Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Institute guarantees quick report turnaround. Patients are called back into the office that same day should any acute findings come in the day we receive the recordings.
