New Tool Eliminates Need for a Medical Center Operator to Receive Transtelephonic ECG Transmissions
For Immediate Release
Tel Aviv, Israel, May 17, 2005. Aerotel Medical Systems – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of cutting-edge diagnostic telemedicine systems is proud to introduce its new Voice Receiving Module (VRM), the HRS-VRM. The latest tool for the company’s HRSTM (Heartline Receiving Software) designed to receive ECG transmissions from patients via the telephone.
HRS is installed in various types of Medical Service Centers. With the new HRS-Voice Receiving Module, medical centers can now receive a phone transmitted ECG without the use of an operator. All the patient has to do is call the Medical Service Center telephone number and The HRS-VRM will automatically answer the call and instruct the patient on how to identify himself by punching in his ID. Once identification is validated, the module then guides the patient on how to transmit an ECG.
With the introduction of HRS-VRM, Aerotel is once again pursuing its goal to streamline healthcare services. Currently, ECG transmissions require a conversation between the patient and either the HRS operator, nurse or doctor. By incorporating Aerotel’s new Voice Receiving Module into the HRS program, the need for an online operator is eliminated and a full ECG transmission is automatically received, edited and stored into a file along with the patient’s ID, transmission time and date. The recorded file is then saved in the HRS Inbox so that it can be interpreted and edited. The patient's transmitted ECG is reviewed later on by either a physician at the medical service center or a doctor in a remote location with Internet access.
