EHRs and medical devices have collaborated to have them interconnect. The reason? So patients have the ability to use home monitoring devices and the physician is able to review the patient’s information.
This is a huge advantage for people located within rural America. Instead of driving 50+ miles to your physician’s office, all of the information can be automatically transferred.
Many of these solutions are also focused on commercial, military and government application.
Vitel Net is just one company that provides solutions that interconnect to EHRs.
