Boston Scientific’s Patient Management System Releases Data Remotely

Boston Scientific Corp. released data reflecting experience from the first 15,000 patients monitored wirelessly on the LATITUDE Patient Management System, a device that detects clinical events between scheduled follow-up visits and then sends the clinical event data directly to physicians, reportedly enabling clinicians to observe these events sooner.

The device, available as an optional component to the LATITUDE Patient Management system, is a wireless weight scale and blood pressure cuff, which is aligned with the ACC/AHA physician society guidelines that recommend monitoring weight and blood pressure.
