- Telehomecare Research Project Launched Mobile Phone-Based Telemonitoring as an Aid for Home Healthcare Nurses study.
ParaMed and CellTrak announce their support for an important new industry research project integrating the University Health Network’s (UHN) telemonitoring system with the CellTrak system. This system provides home healthcare nurses with up-to-date client information for visits and timely intervention in case of deteriorating health. During the first year of the multi-year project, the existing remote client monitoring system will be adapted for use by home healthcare nurses. The second year will be devoted to piloting the resulting system with ParaMed nurses. ParaMed has deployed the CellTrak system, which provides encrypted transfer of data between the point-of-care and the backend servers. CellTrak’s patented software-as-a-service solutions run on GPS-enabled mobile devices via a homecare technology platform which automates workflow and reduces cost.
