VivoMetrics(R) Introduces Next Generation LifeShirt Prototype, a Smart Garment That Delivers Real-time Vital Signs Remotely to Healthcare Providers
Date:6/8/2009

e telehealth technology will need to improve in terms of reliability and ease-of-use in order for adoption to increase(2).

VivoMetrics' intent is to address these needs with the next generation LifeShirt and help make the full promise of RPM a reality.

"VivoMetrics has been a true innovator in remote monitoring technologies," says Kent Tonkin, assistant director of information technology at St. Francis University's Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-served Areas (CERMUSA), a federally funded program that has begun a partnership with VivoMetrics and is dedicated to improving access to healthcare. "Solutions like LifeShirt can help us reach our goals of providing better lives and lower healthcare costs for our neighbors."

In addition to simplifying how vital sign data is collected, VivoMetrics also intends to transform how healthcare professionals can utilize this data in caring for their remote patients. In partnership with OBS Medical (Carmel, IN), VivoMetrics is adapting hospital-proven decision-assist software to fuse data from multiple vital signs into a single index of health status that will provide actionable insights into a patient's wellbeing and enable caregivers to proactively intervene in their care.

"The challenge for us is quite clear. If patients and providers aren't completely comfortable with monitoring technology, they won't use it," says Howard R. Baker, VivoMetrics' president and chief executive officer. "The key to strong adoption and sustainability in the RPM space will be highly dependent on both patient and provider compliance. It's exciting for us to be able to draw upon over 10 years of experience acquiring quality data in a vast array of ambulatory environments. We're creating solutions that address the enormous cost of caring for a population that is growing older and experiencing increasing rates of chronic illness."
