About the Hero Cardiologist Network

We are currently expanding the Hawthorne Effect offerings to include supporting patient surveillance under the FDA “REMS” (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) program. This program is designed to ensure that the benefits of certain medications outweigh the risks by requiring increased safety monitoring while preserving patient access to necessary therapies. Hawthorne Effect adult and pediatric sonographers will be providing in-home echos for interested patients/caregivers and transferring images to be read remotely by a member of the Hawthorne Effect Cardiologist Network, a new network within our organization. The resulting echo report will be provided to the patient's prescribing physician to inform continued treatment decisions and to complete necessary FDA forms required by the REMS Program.
