Healthcare goes wireless (US example)

Healthcare goes wireless

The segment featured professional care providers and patients at Meridian Health Hospital, in New Jersey, who are using the MedApps System to monitor chronic conditions in a simple and effective way.

Meridian Health R.N., Marian Estabrook said, “Where a nurse going in the home can maybe see 6 or 7 patients in a day, I can see 20 in an hour.”

This brief clip offers powerful affirmation that the ‘early winds of change’ for healthcare reform are undeniably shifting in the direction of remote health monitoring.
