MINNEAPOLIS, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — ARC Devices Ltd., the leader in digital, non-touch thermometry, announced today a partnership with telehealth platform provider, VSee, to design the world’s first wireless connected thermometer embedded into a remote patient monitoring kit. With this integration, ARC’s thermometer will provide real-time temperature data to power a new generation of video and data-driven telehealth connectivity. The announcement was made today at the 2016 American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Annual Conference and Tradeshow in Minneapolis.
Clinicians around the world agree that an accurate temperature reading is one of the most important elements of any medical interaction or diagnosis. In today’s world of virtual medicine, clinicians must rely on the patients taking vital sign measurements at home, which are often inaccurate. In addition, none of these measurements are integrated directly into their electronic health record, making it a challenge for clinicians to obtain a holistic view of their patients’ health.
“Through our partnership with VSee, we are making it easier for patients and providers to obtain an accurate look at their temperature readings in real-time, and integrating this data directly into their electronic health records,” said Irwin Gross, Founder and CEO of ARC Devices. “The design, engineering, and video capabilities of VSee, combined with ARC’s advanced medical sensor technology brings a new level of efficiency, accuracy, and reliability to telemedicine.”
Known for its development of the exclusive video chat system for NASA’s international space station, VSee brings deep expertise in the integration of data into the telemedicine experience. Through continued work with companies like VSee, ARC continues to drive innovation in non-touch, wireless integrated vital sign measurement.
“We are excited to partner with ARC Devices and take advantage of their technology to create the first ever connected thermometer, otoscope, and remote patient monitoring kit specifically geared towards consumers,” said Milton Chen, CEO of VSee. “This product will combine video assets with data to allow primary care physicians and hospitals to have direct access to patients, and allow them to constantly monitor vital-signs without the patient having to be in the hospital for extended periods of time.”
