One of the Pillars of the Home Health Agency of the Future is technology. I’m always monitoring trends in each of these six pillars. Here’s an interesting article on wireless telehealth in Spain. Not all of the technology developments are in the U.S.

Bilbao, Spain & Holon, Israel (PRWEB) April 3, 2008 — Aerotel Medical Systems, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of advanced telemedicine and remote monitoring solutions, announced today that Vodafone Spain in conjunction with Medicronic Salud have used Aerotel’s e-CliniQ™ Wireless Home Monitoring System with successful results.

The e-CliniQ™ Wireless Home Monitoring System enables patients to keep track of their health, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Using Bluetooth technology, Aerotel’s Tele-Modem™ Homecare Hub remotely monitors the patient’s vital signs from various homecare sensors, transmitting the data to Medicronic’s central receiving station via the Vodafone cellular network, where it is stored and analyzed by Aerotel’s Medical Parameters Monitoring (MPM™) software.

The seamless technology is being used successfully by MEDICRONIC-VODAFONE SPAIN, a joint venture between Medicronic Salud and Vodaphone, to monitor, for example, patients’ blood pressure and other vital signs. Easy to use, the e-CliniQ™ system is activated at the touch of a button. Blood pressure readings are encrypted and sent via a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone to the receiving center where the patient or doctor can directly access the information via the internet, using Aerotel’s MPM-Net™ technology. The system allows doctors to check that patients are adhering to their pharmaceutical treatments.
