HealthFrontier Introduces New Web-Based Remote Health Monitoring Technology
June 19, 2009 – HealthFrontier Inc., together with its technology partner, et medical devices SpA, Italy, yesterday introduced a new innovation in Web-enabled electrocardiogram (ECG) technology, the ecg@home, which is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand.
The device can record a 10-second ECG rhythm strip without electrode cables by just using the thumbs. The ecg@home debuted at the Premier healthcare alliance Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in Anaheim, Calif. It was one of only 26 products selected for showcase at Premier's inaugural Innovation Celebration, an event to celebrate advances in healthcare while highlighting healthcare industry suppliers committed to innovation and improving patient outcomes.
The system enables practitioners to provide better, more informed care for their patients without requiring time-consuming office visits. The ecg@home is powered by an IT backbone known as the Remote Health Monitoring System (RHMS). HealthFrontier's RHMS is a Web-enabled software application that automatically receives, stores and forwards incoming ECG scans to a patient's electronic medical record, thus eliminating the need for paper printouts. This innovative technology is certified on Dell systems, ensuring easy and seamless connectivity from patient to physician systems. It will be available for purchase both as a stand alone unit and with Dell hardware through the Premier healthcare alliance and through Dell.
Also coinciding with the Innovation Celebration is HealthFrontier's announcement of the microtel ecgAnywhere, a compact, hand-held, 12-lead ECG device that is equipped to upload recorded ECG data via Bluetooth, USB or through transtelephonic transmission.
