Evaware Ltd, developer of the Project E-vita Electronic Patient Record has announced expansion of its integrated remote telehealth monitoring to include data collection via a Wi-Fi enabled telehealth monitor and by Blackberry/mobile phones, thus potentially removing the need for, and therefore the cost of, a telehealth monitor/hub.
Managing Director for Evaware Ltd, Nick Dyer, said that a key strategy is to provide rich functionality while keeping clients’ costs down. Many peripheral devices like scales and blood pressure meters are interchangeable between systems, ensuring that the investment in these devices is maximised. Being a full electronic patient record system, Project E-vita delivers more than simple monitoring. Physicians and other healthcare professionals can keep detailed notes and clinical records about each patient in the system. A powerful feature is clinical alerting, whereby the clinician can set clinical thresholds for each patient. The system then evaluates data as it arrives and can, if the physicians wish, send SMS messages and emails to alert them that certain thresholds have been breached.
This additional integration means that there are now four ways to connect to the Project E-vita record to monitor patients when in their homes and while they are on the move. Full details in this press release (PDF).
