Eurotech Unveils New Diabetes Care Management Solution

COLUMBIA, Md., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurotech Group, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems, announces today the Everyware(TM) Medical Gateway designed to help physicians remotely monitor and adjust the treatment of their diabetes patients. Based on the open standards promoted by the Continua Health Alliance, the Everyware Medical Gateway requires little patient involvement and helps eliminate many of the impediments typically associated with chronic care home monitoring.

The Everyware Medical Gateway is designed to provide robust and reliable data transmission across cellular connectivity from a patient's home to their physician. By receiving electronic readings electronically from patients, the physician has the ability to prescribe modifications in near real-time, a key factor when studies by Continua have shown 19 percent reduction in hospital admissions through home care programs.

"Remote patient monitoring is a key component of emerging smarter healthcare solutions that offer the potential to not only reduce overall health care costs but also to improve patient outcomes," said Karla Norsworthy, Vice President , Software Standards, IBM. "Working with our partners, including Eurotech, IBM is committed to provide complete, easy-to-use solutions that emphasize our commitment to open standards."

In conjunction with partners IBM, Roche, A&D Medical, and MDclick, Eurotech is participating in an end-end diabetes care management demonstration at the Continua Health Alliance Fall Summit & Plugfest, October 5(th) to 9(th) in Boston. The conference brings together leaders from across the industry to highlight the latest technologies in remote patient monitoring and open standards.
