Breakthrough predictive blood pressure solution for the cardiology landscape

OSTAR Healthcare Technology P200 Remote Blood Pressure Monitoring System

August 5, 2014 — OSTAR Healthcare Technology, a Washington State-based Medical Device and Healthcare IT company, announced the North American launch of its P Series Cloud Based Telehealth Blood Pressure Monitoring System, powered by 3SI (3 simultaneous interpretations) Interpretive Blood Pressure Monitoring Algorithm. According to Doug Hemenway, CEO, "This North American launch of OSTAR P200TM brings forth a timely and unique, nurse centered approach to remote monitoring. The P200 instantly improves nurse productivity and satisfaction, in lockstep with current Care Coordination Requirements. All OSTAR products reinforce OSTAR's commitment to improving patient outcomes, avoiding unnecessary costs, in conjunction with the current Accountable Care Act (PPACA)."

OSTAR Healthcare Technology — P200 Remote Telehealth Blood Pressure Monitoring System, provides an intelligent, cloud based, user-friendly device. Furthermore, the device automatically connects to WIFI and cellphone networks, seamlessly sending relevant patient centered data to EMR's and HIE's anywhere in the world. This approach removes the need for paperwork, integrating via the cloud to EMRs and HIE and allowing for further improvement in timely patient care. The onboard 3SI algorithm provides meaningful early warning alerts of possible emerging arrhythmias, valvular and coronary arterial conditions. OSTAR Healthcare Technology — P200 Remote Telehealth Blood Pressure Monitoring System is the first North American release of a P Series.

"Given the current transformation of healthcare in the United States, this nurse centered form of remote telehealth has the potential to impact shared saving plans in Accountable Care Organizations, while also positively impacting health insurance indicators such as HEDIS, with regards to Medicare Advantage Star Rating programs," said Paul A. Markham, president V3 Healthcare Strategies. The result is reduced cost to healthcare systems and the American healthcare consumer.
