announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media
company helping clients in print, in person and online, has named
the Cardiocom Commander® Telehealth System as a recipient of
the 2010 TMCnet Smart Health Excellence Award.
Cardiocom’s Commander Telehealth System provides an opportunity
to proactively manage patient care. The system guides the patient
through an interactive “health check” that includes the monitoring
of symptoms, care plan compliance, and vital signs such as weight,
blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. This information
is immediately transmitted over a standard phone line or a cellular
signal to the patient’s nurse for review.
Cardiocom’s Commander simplifies home monitoring for patients
with complex medical conditions such as: heart failure,
hypertension, COPD, asthma, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and
end stage renal disease. “Cardiocom is pleased to accept this
prestigious award,” said Cardiocom CEO and President, Daniel
L. Cosentino. “Our mission is to provide integrated clinical
telehealth services that improve patient care.”
“It is an honor to bestow Cardiocom with this award for its
commitment to advancing smart health technology. Commander has
exceeded industry standards in quality and achievement and has
provided ROI for the companies that use it,” said
Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to more innovation from
Cardiocom in the future.”
