Smart Meter debuted two blood pressure monitors and two weight management monitoring solutions at the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) meeting.

The new additions join the remote patient monitoring (RPM) company’s product range.

The iBloodPressure and iBloodPressure Plus offer monitoring solutions for patients with chronic diseases, including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and congestive heart failure. The latter device also includes accessible features such as active voice assistance.

Smart Meter also debuts its iScale and iScale Plus products for weight management and bariatric monitoring. The devices combine colour-coded indicators, large reading displays, and support for two users in a single monitor.

There is considerable demand to facilitate real-time, accurate and accessible health data between patients and healthcare providers. Estimates from the RAND Corporation put the number of people in America living with a chronic condition at nearly 150 million.

RPM has become more engrained in healthcare architecture since the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only were healthcare providers forced to seek alternative means of monitoring patient health from afar, but patient attitudes toward health management shifted. Uptake and willingness to monitor health at home have persisted beyond the pandemic. With the unveiling of its new products, Smart Meter taps into a market that is forecast to reach $760m by 2030, according to GlobalData

There are growing cybersecurity concerns from within the industry as higher bandwidths of patient data are transmitted and stored digitally.

SmartPartners can be assured their patient data is protected from alteration, eavesdropping, data mining, or interception.”
