American TeleCare to Present its Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) Option for Cellular Telehealth Connectivity at the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Annual Meeting
Date:3/19/2009

Cellular Telecommunications Network Technology Offers a New Way to Connect Patients to Providers with American TeleCare's Telehealth Solutions.

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 19, 2009 -- Attendees at the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Annual Meeting will have the opportunity to see American TeleCare's new cellular option for establishing telehealth connectivity.

WHO: American TeleCare, Inc. (ATI), the leader in the development and application of video-based telehealth solutions to advance medical care for patients at home.

WHAT: ATI LifeView™ Telehealth Patient Station with a 3G WWAN router. This establishes an ethernet-to-3G wireless connection with Virtual Private Network (VPN) security to ATI System servers and Provider Stations. Thus, ATI will present how it can utilize wireless cellular services to connect patients and health care providers for telehealth.

WHEN: April 26-28, 2009.

WHERE: The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Annual Meeting at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nev. American TeleCare will be located at booth #300.

WHY: Today, patient information in telehealth systems is transmitted to system servers using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology over plain old telephone lines (POTS) or wired broadband connections, including Digital Subscriber Lines (DSLs). Health care organizations need a WWAN option. "We have a large customer that every week has to turn away 30 patients who don't have a landline phone or broadband access at home," said Jan Wuorenma, R.N., B.S.N., M.B.A., vice president, partner development, American TeleCare, Inc. "Cellular technology makes telehealth connected care possible for these patients."

ATI SOLUTION OVERVIEW: The ATI inLife™ system features compact, easy-to-use Patient Stations that gather and send information from health status questions answered by patients as well as objective clinical data from integrated medical peripherals (including blood pressure monitors and blood glucose meters). Narrated instructions with answer verification complement multi-media instructions to guide patients through their telehealth tasks. Individualized patient education and self-care instruction are integrated within the flow of patients' tasks. A dashboard display presented on the system's Provider Stations color-codes summaries of each patient's current health risk status. Clinicians can set specific thresholds for each patient to red flag significant changes, and they can also access the details of monitored physiological data and patient-reported information. In addition to remote patient monitoring via supported communications technologies (now including cellular), ATI's LifeView™ system offers electronic stethoscope options and interactive video. With LifeView, providers can conduct televisits to further assess patients at home and intervene with timely medical care.
