Ecg@home Offers Small, Web-based ECG for Telemedicine
HealthFrontier Inc. and et medical devices SpA, Italy, offer a 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 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.
HealthFrontier also offers 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.
