MCT vs. MCOT vs. ACT

Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) refers to a long-term, real-time, outpatient ECG monitoring technology designed to automatically detect and transmit relevant ECG information to a diagnostic laboratory.

In the industry, there is some confusion regarding the appropriate name or reference for this technology, largely due to various companies creating their own acronyms for their specific products. One such example is CardioNet, the pioneering company that introduced this technology and holds a trademark for the acronym MCOT™. MCOT™ represents Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry and has become a widely used acronym, particularly because CardioNet sponsored numerous clinical literature documenting the diagnostic effectiveness of their MCT monitor known as the MCOT™.

Considering that multiple companies offer Mobile Cardiac Telemetry monitors, they have developed other acronyms to distinguish their versions of the technology. For instance, Lifewatch ACT monitor stands for Ambulatory Cardiac Telemetry and has gained recognition as Lifewatch is the second-largest player in the Mobile Cardiac Telemetry field. Another notable name in this domain is ECAT (External Cardiac Ambulatory Telemetry).
