m-Health Solutions is helping healthcare organizations save lives with m-CARDS, a Mobile Cardiac Arrhythmia Diagnostic device that transmits ECG through a BlackBerry Smartphone.
The m-Health wireless heart monitoring system worn by a patient for an extended period of time as they go about their normal life, data is then sent remotely to a central cardiac diagnostic centre via a SIM card in a smartphone. The data is then analysed by cardiac technologists.
m-Health’s innovative heart monitoring system has been used by over 36,000 patients in Ontario, Canada for faster diagnosis and access to treatment that can save lives.
Challenges of wireless network connectivity for mHealth
There are a number of challenges faced by the m-Health’s solution due to ECGs being sent in near real-time over the wireless network to a cardiac interpreting centre.
Patient’s being monitored by the m-Health system have monitoring device to wear for a two-week period, during which time m-Health relies upon reliable connectivity to deliver results back from each device to a customer base of 130 cardiologists and 2,500 GPs, in different geographic locations.
Maintaining reliable wireless network connectivity, with the ability to roam between multiple network carriers at cost effective rates.
