Medmonitor offers state-of-the-art and scalable solutions that can meet the healthcare needs of everyone from employees of small to medium-sized commercial organisations to students of educational institutions in the form of advanced and innovative healthcare technologies.
As a company, MedMonitor specializes in wearable biosensor technology with the specific aim of facilitating wireless patient monitoring. The MedMonitor Solution consists of a wearable device, a dashboard for central monitoring station and an app that provides a user-friendly interface that integrates all vital information. The comprehensive device can monitor a number of vital information in real-time including temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate and blood oxygen levels.
MedMonitor solution technology starts with the wearable device, which relays information to an app or tablet or desktop and thus the cloud. The data in the cloud is then available through a secure URL and central monitoring station. This station, named the MedMonitor center, displays important information at administrators’ fingertip.
MedMonitor, as a company leverages its knowledge and expertise in technology and integrates it with strong partnerships with medical community, through collaborations with doctors that also provide telemedicine services that have undertaken 9 million consultation globally. Our Telemedicine partners have years of experience in the use of our sensors, and our on-call specialists can help provide the immediate and reliable recommendations for concerns on hand.
With Covid-19 reshaping social and professional day-to-day lives, our solutions can help organizations and institutions ease into a new routine that will ensure the healthcare of their most valuable asset – human resources.
MedMonitor solutions being deployed in the context of Covid-19 focuses on temperature measurement and monitoring of the respiratory rate, heart rate and blood oxygen. The technology has the ability to set predetermined alerts so that in real time, notifications will be sent to the concerned department if a patient, employee or student crosses a threshold. This provides operation management of commercial and educational facilities with real-time and reliable data that will help mitigate risk of infection and exposure, which would have potential to cripple operations for an indefinite period. Such an investment would also reduce the cost otherwise allocating to spot checks that provide no follow-up and can be unreliable in the output of data.
MedMonitor solutions include a comprehensive telemedicine subscription plan that encompasses tele-consultation, care plan and facilitates with the issuing of e-prescription, medicine delivery and Medical Certificate.

COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our way of life. While the medical community is working hard to develop a vaccine, the mobilization and distribution will not be be immediate. Businesses and educational institutions require an immediate and implementable strategy that can allow them to adapt and rejuvenate operations, all the while keeping in mind the health and well-being of employees and students.

Telemedicine is widely considered to be the future of the global healthcare sector for its ability to use digitalisation to deliver reliable health consultations to people from all walks of life, which has been even more crucial following the outbreak of Covid-19.
Telemedicine is essentially used to describe the process by which a patient receives healthcare services from a provider through technology rather than in person. Being able to access such technology through the platform brings about a number of benefits and positive outcomes.
First, telemedicine allows healthcare workers and professionals to reach people even from the farthest corner of the globe. This leads to faster diagnosis and improvement of overall mortality rates as it removes the need to schedule an appointment and effort and cost that may be associated with visiting centres. This will also improve the quality of healthcare services people who are in remote locations are able to get to. This serves to level the playing field, as everyone will have the ease of access to the best available medical professionals.
Secondly, this will also reduce the cost of getting treatment. This is especially important in view of the final challenges posed by socio-economic problems as it reduces cost all around. As patients are being monitored at the safety of their homes, it reduces the need to spend for travel while giving them a chance to get ahead of their illness.
Thirdly, in the overall scheme of climate change mitigation efforts, telemedicine can contribute greatly to reducing carbon footprint of both the patient and medical professionals by minimizing the travel needed for hospital as well as transfers unless absolutely necessary. This would lead to astronomical savings in fuel and energy.
While the benefits of telemedicine for patients across the country has been recognised and applauded, it is also important to note the contribution telemedicine can have to social and economic goals.
Promoting the use and awareness is also a lot of is not only beneficial for the patients, but it also helps keep healthcare workers, working. There are many reasons why qualified and well-meaning doctors and specialists are unable to work. With telemedicine, distance is no longer a hindrance for these medical experts. Through telemedicine doctors are able to connect with their patients any time and anywhere, they are able to diagnose and provide the proper traeatment as and when needed.
Providing such a strong healthcare infrastructure would significantly improve the social standing and quality of life among the people, especially those in certain geographic areas. This will especially provide an opportunity for doctors in rural clinics to expand their base and reach, furthering their knowledge through experience.
Spreading such healthcare knowledge will only serve to strengthen the base of people. It also serves as a comfort for people who know they have ready access to the necessary information.
Also with telemedicine and digitalisation at the forefront of trends, it would be beneficial to be ahead of the curve and cultivate an innovative standing from the beginning.
Mainstream hospitals and healthcares have turned to telemedicine to increase access and allocate resources more effectively, according to an article in Health Affairs.
The article details five provider organizations that have used telemedicine to provide effective care while keeping costs down:
1. Through a program at Boston-based Partners Healthcare, more than 3,000 congestive heart failure patients used at-home monitoring devices to send updates of their weight, blood pressure and other metrics to Partners. Clinical decision support software then helped identify the patients that needed interventions. The program allowed a panel of three or four nurses to provide care for 250 patients, and ultimately reduced readmissions among the participating patient population by 44 percent while generating cost savings of more than $10 million.
2. A four-year program run by the Veterans Health Administration combined remote patient monitoring, health informatics and disease management technology to improve care for patients with six chronic conditions ranging from depression to diabetes. In addition to high patient satisfaction scores, the program also achieved a 25 percent drop in bed-days of care and a 19 percent reduction in hospital admissions as compared to traditional care.
3. Kaiser Permanente dermatologists in San Diego are able to treat more patients by reviewing images and patient information uploaded and sent to them over a secure server by referring physicians, rather than seeing every patient in person. The practice's physicians now handle 800 cases per month, 50 percent more than if they relied on face-to-face visits.
4. About 13 percent of all intensive care unit beds in the country are supported by tele-ICU technology. At the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, having trained intensivists provide ICU care remotely resulted in a 20 percent decrease in mortality, a 30 percent drop in lengths of stay and reductions in care costs.
5. Telemedicine can also help patients adhere to their medication regimes. A randomized trial at the Center for Connected Health, part of Partners Healthcare, showed the use of a wireless pill bottle that reminded patients to take their blood pressure medication increased adherence by 68 percent.
