Solution featured as part of the Premier healthcare alliance Innovation Celebration
ANAHEIM, Calif., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthFrontier, Inc., together with its technology partner, et medical devices SpA, Italy, yesterday introduced a new innovation in web-enabled electrocardiogram (ECG) technology. The ecg@home(TM), small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, can record a 10-second ECG rhythm strip without electrode cables by just using the thumbs.
The ecg@home(TM) debuted at the Premier healthcare alliance Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in Anaheim, CA. It was one of only 26 products selected for showcase at Premier's inaugural Innovation Celebration, an event to celebrate advances in healthcare while highlighting healthcare industry suppliers committed to innovation and improving patient outcomes.
"The combination of advanced hardware and web-enabled telemedicine allows physicians and hospitals to review ECG reads soon after patients perform the test remotely in their own homes," said Tony Uccello, VP of Product Development at HealthFrontier. "The ecg@home(TM) enables practitioners to provide better, more informed care for their patients without requiring time-consuming office visits. This new focus on portability and connectivity has many companies considering how these innovative technologies can add value to their products and services."
The ecg@home(TM) is powered by an IT backbone known as the Remote Health Monitoring System (RHMS). HealthFrontier's RHMS is a web-enabled software application that automatically receives, stores and forwards incoming ECG scans to a patient's Electronic Medical Record, thus eliminating the need for paper printouts. This innovative technology is certified on Dell systems, ensuring easy and seamless connectivity from patient to physician systems. It will be available for purchase both as a stand alone unit and with Dell hardware through the Premier healthcare alliance and through Dell.
