IDEAL LIFE's Remote Monitoring System Benefits Rural North Carolina Communities
Date:8/3/2009

TORONTO, August 3 /PRNewswire/ -- IDEAL LIFE, INC. announced today that their wireless remote monitoring devices have been selected for use in a state-funded healthcare project in six rural North Carolina communities. The $870,000 grant is the largest Phase II Health Disparities Grant awarded by the NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund Commission (HWTF), which utilizes North Carolina's share of the national tobacco settlement to fund programs that promote preventative health. The grant provides funds for Phase II of a HWTF Health Disparities Initiative; Phase I was a successful three-year telehealth program that recently concluded with positive outcomes and high patient satisfaction levels.

Each blood pressure device and scale wirelessly and automatically sends readings to healthcare professionals who monitor the data and intervene if necessary by contacting the patient's primary care provider. This can help avoid a health crisis that might otherwise require a costly visit to the emergency room or re-hospitalization - a significant plus for those without close proximity to major medical centers.

"No other remote monitoring vendor could provide customized reports or integrate with our current EMR system, and that's what we needed to obtain future NC Medicaid reimbursement," said Bonnie Perry Britton, Telehealth Clinical Network Director/Development Director for North Carolina's Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center (RCCHC) in Ahoskie, NC. "The cost savings was a significant factor, too. IDEAL LIFE has de
