OSTAR Healthcare Technology has launched its A Series cloud-based telehealth patient monitoring system in North America.

The system is powered by 3SI (3 simultaneous interpretations) interpretive blood pressure monitoring algorithm.

The OSTAR A300 system can be configured based on provider, physician, nurse, chronic disease, drug, ACO metric and any other relevant data using a simple integrated bar code scanner.

OSTAR president and CEO Doug Hemenway said: "This North American launch of OSTAR A300TM brings forth a revolutionary, configurable, nurse-centred approach to remote monitoring.

"Coupled with the extended LIPO battery life, the A300 instantly improves nurse productivity and satisfaction in lockstep with current care coordination requirements.

"All OSTAR products reinforce OSTAR's commitment to improving patient outcomes while avoiding unnecessary costs, in lockstep with the Accountable Care Act (PPACA)."

"Coupled with the extended LIPO battery life, the A300 instantly improves nurse productivity and satisfaction in lockstep with current care coordination requirements."

In addition, the cloud-based, user-friendly system automatically connects to Wi-Fi and cellphone networks, sending relevant data to EMRs and HIEs located anywhere in the world.

According to the company, the A300 remote telehealth vital signs monitoring system is the first release of the A Series vital signs monitoring systems.

V3 Healthcare Strategies president Paul Markham said: "Given the current transformation of healthcare and trend to remote telehealth in the United States, this comprehensive nurse-centred form of remote telehealth changes the game for providers and insurance companies.

"The concept has the potential to impact shared saving plans in accountable care organizations, while also positively impacting health insurance indicators such as HEDIS, with regards to medicare advantage star rating programmes."
