eCare21 Deploys First Direct-to-Cloud Medisanté Medical IoT Devices in U.S. Virtual Care solution enables healthcare providers to scale Remote Patient Monitoring and dramatically simplify healthcare/homecare patient-provider experience
ORLANDO, Florida – October 15, 2019 – eCare21 deployed the first direct-to-cloud cellular medical IoT devices to patients in the U.S. within the clinical workflow of a physician practice performing Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). Direct-to-cloud devices have eliminated the need for any Bluetooth or Wi-Fi configuration.
“This is a momentous milestone for our eCare21 Virtual Care solution team and the entire healthcare industry,” said Vadim Cherdak, PhD, CEO of eCare21. “The combination of direct to-cloud cellular devices, integrated with our eCare21 Virtual Care platform, dramatically simplifies the healthcare/homecare patient-provider experience and will reduce the overall cost and complexity of large-scale enterprise deployments of RPM solutions. Patients simply power on the devices, take their blood pressure, measure their glucose, and step on the scale. It takes only a few minutes to transmit the patient’s health data to eCare21 and the patient’s trend charts are immediately available for their care team to review.”
“This is Digital Health as we expected it to be,” said Dr. Koroleva, DO, patient’s physician. “It was easy; no installation or deployment problems. The patient measured their blood pressure and glucose at home, and I could immediately see their vitals and trends on the office computer and on my iPad.”
eCare21 has partnered with Medisanté – a global leader in direct-to-cloud medical IoT infrastructure – and has begun deploying their connected care devices to customers in the U.S. market. Direct-to-cloud connectivity embedded in medical devices makes data transmission to clinical systems hassle-free for both the patient, the care team, and the biomedical engineer.
“Medisanté simplifies connectivity at the endpoint in the patient’s home in order to globally scale RPM using cloud technologies,” says Gilles Lunzenfichter, Chief Commercial Officer at Medisanté. “Once a cellular device has been assigned by a physician to a patient in eCare21’s Virtual Care solution, no Bluetooth/Wi-Fi pairing is required and, when data is transmitted, the patient’s identity remains in a HIPAA compliant system instead of being shared with a device vendor,” he adds.
“Direct-to-cloud cellular devices are much more reliable to deploy in the home setting, in remote locations, and especially with the senior population. Easy always wins,” said Pete Stevenson, President & COO of eCare21. “The results are in. We have a case study that demonstrates eCare21 has been reducing hospitalizations,” Stevenson adds. “Together with Medisanté, eCare21’s Virtual Care solution is delivering a new and more efficient model of connected care,” Cherdak says. “By simplifying the patient-provider experience, we are at the beginning of the next revolution in healthcare and homecare. Let’s do it!”
