The MedApps Mobile Wireless Health Monitoring System helps connect people afflicted with chronic disease like Diabetes, Asthma, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and COPD, with their healthcare providers. This is accomplished by collecting personal health readings from off the shelf medical devices (e.g., glucose meters, scales, blood pressure monitors, ECG, pulse ox, spirometers) and transmitting that data wirelessly to a secure server or Personal Health Record (PHR) like Microsoft HealthVault for storage and review.
"The No. 1 reason small businesses use technology is to better serve customers and no one is doing that better than this year's 10 finalists," said Frank Muehleman, vice president and general manager of Dell Small and Medium Business. "These companies are applying technology in innovative ways to break new ground and raise the bar."
"Dell has been a very integral part in building a solid foundation for the MedApps System, giving us the ability to scale for the future," said Kent Dicks, Chief Executive Officer of MedApps. "Dell gave us the ability to enter the Enterprise Level space for a very reasonable investment. Our Fortune 500 clients are impressed with our servers, architecture, backup, redundancy, security, scalability and speed. Setting up our environment correctly from the beginning with Dell servers and software has allowed MedApps to grow fast and leap solidly ahead of the competition."
The Dell/NFIB Award is the third honor that MedApps has received since
the beginning of 2008. MedApps has been recognized as an innovator in the
field of wireless telemedicine, recently bringing home two major awards
