U.S. Food and Drug Administration Clears Alcatel-Lucent Remote Patient Monitoring Solution for Sale in the United States
Date:11/4/2009

PARIS, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that the Alcatel-Lucent TeleHealth Manager, a secure and reliable remote patient monitoring solution, has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for marketing in the United States.

The Alcatel-Lucent TeleHealth Manager supports remote patient monitoring with an easily deployable solution for standard mobile phones from leading vendors. It allows patients to provide health data using devices they're already familiar with (e.g., mobile phones and medical devices such as blood glucose meters) in a secure manner, without the expense, time and potential exposure to other diseases that unnecessary clinical visits might entail. In addition to monitoring, TeleHealth Manager provides reminders, alerts and online reports to help patients and their healthcare professionals better understand and manage their conditions.

Faced with challenges such as an aging population and rising healthcare costs, hospitals and physicians are increasingly turning to innovative communications technologies such as remote patient monitoring to supplement face-to-face care. Especially for patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, remote patient monitoring offers an efficient and accurate way for care providers to regularly gather potentially lifesaving data. While cost effective for health care systems and home care agencies, remote monitoring also offers convenience, cost savings and empowerment to patients -- and enables more informed treatment decisions that can result in improved outcomes.

"The Alcatel-Lucent TeleHealth Manager supports our focus to enable patient-centric healthcare through technology," said Tom Burns, head of Alcatel-Lucent's enterprise and verticals business. "With the FDA clearance to market this cutting-edge solution in the United States, clinicians and patients will be able to better work together to monitor and manage certain chronic diseases."

With the TeleHealth Manager solution, Alcatel-Lucent has taken advantage of its strong relationships with telecom service providers and healthcare organizations, and its global expertise in fixed and mobile telephony. The Alcatel-Lucent TeleHealth Manager requires minimal capital investment to deploy and can be hosted by a telecom service provider, a healthcare organization or offered as a managed service by Alcatel-Lucent.
