CardioNet and MedApps have formed a strategic alliance to advance their positions in the mobile wireless medical market, through the companies’ respective wireless patient monitoring technologies.

The companies expect to leverage their respective strengths to deploy new wireless monitoring solutions that benefit patients in a cost-effective, meaningful manner.

MedApps’ CloudCare technology platform will bring ease and simplicity to CardioNet’s business model by improving all aspects of the process that affect both the enterprise and end-user, from simplifying the placing and processing of orders, to remotely updating and servicing equipment in the field.

CardioNet president and CEO Joseph Capper said that as CardioNet is the provider in the diagnosis and management of cardiac arrhythmias with Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry, they seek to expand their service offerings.

“When CardioNet’s MCOT is prescribed, physicians, patients and payors recognize the quality and reliability of our service. We are looking to MedApps to help accelerate our entry into additional areas of monitoring, and to extend our platform utilizing MedApps’ CloudCare technology,” Capper said.

MedApps CEO Kent Dicks said that this is an opportunity to forge a collaboration between two companies and take wireless healthcare to the next level.

“Both of our companies are considered innovators and leaders in bringing wireless technology to patient monitoring, and our philosophies for improving the delivery of healthcare are a perfect fit,” Dicks said.
