Medical Alarm Concepts(TM) Announces the Development of Proprietary Monitoring Software for Home Healthcare/Hospital Industry(August 17, 2010)
PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Aug. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCBB:MDHI), manufacturer of the MediPendantTM, the first fully-monitored medical alarm system that allows you to speak and listen directly through the pendant, announced today that it has partnered with one of the industry leaders in software development to develop a private-label, proprietary monitoring software solution for the home healthcare/hospital industry.
The software is designed specifically for hospitals and large, nationally-based healthcare companies. Many of these facilities provide their patients with personal emergency response system hardware to take home with them when they are discharged from the facility. This gives the patient some peace of mind, knowing that they can get help immediately if needed. Until now, however, the monitoring services for medical alarms typically had to go through an independent call center/central station. With the Company's solution, however, the hospital and/or healthcare company will have a turnkey solution that they can provide to their patients. Furthermore, the medical alarm will be monitored directly by trained hospital staff members, instead of an independent call center. Importantly, the result is that the hospital does not have to depend on third party information services for their patients, but instead can now monitor any activity for themselves.
"This is a great opportunity for Medical Alarm Concepts™. Providing these organizations with the ability to offer their patients a full-service medical alarm is a new take on an old idea," said Steve Beeferman, Director of Home and Healthcare Services. "In addition, this creates an entirely new platform for both sales and revenue growth. We are very excited."
Implementation of this software package into several hospitals is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2011.
