I blog about “Intel enters healthcare arena with patient-monitoring device” back on the 14th Sep 2008 and am happy to provide an update (taken from HealthImaging.com).
“Intel has enhanced the Intel Health Guide by adding additional connectivity options to the patient monitoring system.
The system is now available with multiple connectivity options including cable/DSL broadband, cellular wireless and residential phone service.
In-home care and health services organizations such as Providence Life Services in Tinley Park, Ill., Spectrum Medical in Portland, Maine, and ProActive Healthcare in San Jose, Calif., are incorporating the Intel Health Guide into their offerings, according to the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company.
The Intel Health Guide allows healthcare providers to customize care, gather information about the status of their patients and collect and prioritize patient data. The company said that the system engages patients in their own care by providing them with a way to have interaction with their care providers and receive relevant self-care education.”
Makes sense doesn’t it?
