Our innovative patient telemonitoring service vida24 - is a web-based application, which enables remote monitoring of the patients' vital signs via wearable monitoring devices (ECG monitor, spirometer, oximeter, blood pressure monitor, blood glucose monitor, fetal monitor) with transmission capabilities over wireless networks.
The system enables doctor-patient ubiquitous communication and support, whilst the patient is at home, at work or on vacations, i.e. away from the traditional nursing areas. More than this, vida24 triggers a patient-centric process, focusing on prevention rather than disease management and treatment and initiates patients' active involvement in healthcare.
The system enables continuous communication between a doctor and a patient via web-center.
To use the service the patient must have the proper vital signs
(ElectroCardioGrapher, Spirometer, Oxymeter, Blood Pressure Monitor or a Blood Glucose Monitor) and a terminal (PDA/laptop/mobile phone). The apparatus records the measurements which are sent automatically via bluetooth to the transmission terminal. From there, the measurements are transferred automatically via GPRS to the database.
The information flow is shown here below:
