July 9, 2009 – SunTech Medical said today its clinical-grade blood pressure technology will be included in ExpressMD’s Electronic House Call remote patient monitoring device for telemedicine.
The Electronic House Call received its FDA clearance in April and will be used by healthcare professionals who manage patients with chronic conditions, such as heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and diabetes. SunTech Medical’s OEM NIBP module will provide professional grade BP monitoring in combination with the Eclipse D-ring blood pressure cuff to allow easy self-application for in-home use.
Patients use the monitoring device in their home to measure their vital signs and to motivate them through education and reminders, allowing professionals to better manage patients with chronic illnesses. The Electronic House Call monitor securely transmits information to its data center, making it conveniently available to each licensed care provider via a secure Web site.
