August 4, 2014 — Ostar Healthcare Technology, a Washington-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 the 3SI (3 simultaneous interpretations) interpretive blood pressure monitoring algorithm.
According to CEO Doug Hemenway, "This North American launch of Ostar P200 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 (ACA)."
The P200 remote telehealth blood pressure monitoring system provides an intelligent, cloud-based, easy-to-use device. Furthermore, the device automatically connects to Wi-Fi and cellular networks, seamlessly sending relevant patient-centered data to electronic medical records (EMRs) and health information exchanges (HIEs).
This unique approach removes the need for paperwork, integrating via the cloud to EMRs and HIEs 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. The 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 (ACOs), while also positively impacting health insurance indicators such as HEDIS, with regards to Medicare Advantage Star Rating programs," stated Paul A. Markham, president of V3 Healthcare Strategies.
