Digi releases cloud-based telehealth application kit

Digi International (Minnetonka, Minn., U.S.A.), a wireless M2M device provider, on Tuesday released the iDigi Telehealth Application Kit - a development kit that allows customers to create cloud-connected medical devices.


The kit, which will be available in January for $499, includes the Freescale Semiconductor Home Health Hub reference circuit board, which enables wired and wireless connectivity to medical devices like blood pressure monitors, blood glucometers, pulse oximeters and scales, says Digi.


The kit also comes with the iDigi Device Cloud, allowing medical devices to integrate patient data into new, existing and custom healthcare applications. The cloud also enables centralized control of medical device configurations, settings, firmware updates and device groups, allowing healthcare institutions to rollout large installations of cloud-connected medical devices in a simple and cost-effective manner, according to Digi.


"Cloud-connected medical devices help patients get out of the hospital faster by allowing doctors to monitor patient status remotely," said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International.


According to a Continua Health Alliance study, remote monitoring for individuals with chronic conditions can reduce office visits by 65%, shorten the length of hospital stays by up to six days on average, and reducing mortality anywhere from 35 to 56%.
