Evaware Now Offering Remote Health Monitoring via Wi-Fi and BlackBerry

By PRESS RELEASE — March 20, 2009

Evaware Ltd, developer of the Project E-vita Electronic Patient Record Solution based in the Isle of Man & England, has today expanded its Integrated Remote Telehealth Monitoring functionality to include data collection via a Wi-Fi enabled Telehealth Monitor and also via Blackberry and Mobile Phones.

The integration of these two extra hardware platforms now brings a total of 4 different hardware technologies that can be combined under the Project E-vita Solution to remotely monitor patients in their own homes and while on the move.

In 2008 Evaware Ltd integrated the Tunstall RTX Telehealth monitors which also included a GSM mobile network derivative. This month Evaware Ltd has supplemented that release with integration of the digiO2 Care Pal device featuring Wi-Fi 802.11 network support enabling a patient's own broadband connections to be used for transmission of clinical data back to their record.

In addition the new Blackberry/Mobile phone Gateway solution lets patients use devices like Blood Pressure meters in their own home and transfer the data securely via a BlackBerry or Mobile phone to the patient record system in Project E-vita. This development gives Healthcare and Telehealth Providers unrivalled flexibility in the monitoring of patients. At the same time, the use of mobile phones and BlackBerry devices removes the need for, and therefore the cost of a Telehealth Monitor/Hub.

Many of the peripheral devices like Blood Pressure meters and Scales etc are interchangeable between the platforms ensuring that customer investment in these devices can be maximised. All the hardware platforms are integrated within one hosted Project E-vita Patient Record System which operates on a simple "Per patient" subscription tariff. Physicians and other healthcare professionals can keep detailed notes and clinical records about each patient in the system which also includes a powerful Clinical Alerting feature.

The Physician can create tailor made clinical thresholds for each patient that the system then uses to evaluate data as it arrives and attribute a classification or alert level. The alerting can even send SMS messages and emails to physicians to alert them that certain thresholds have been breached.

Evaware is an independent software vendor based in England and the Isle of Man and is the development company behind the Project E-vita subscription based Patient Record System incorporating Telehealth Monitoring Technology.
