CJPS Healthcare Supplies & Equipment has signed a contract agreement to provide 33,000 units of its remote patient monitor - VitalPoint Home to groups of visiting physicians in the US.
VitalPoint Home is a 4.5-lb device which monitors blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure, fluid status, glucose level, prothrombin time and ratios, pulse rate, temperature, weight and provides electrocardiogram data.
It also provides the caregiver with the ability to remotely monitor patients’ conditions using their own computer, iPad, or cell phone.
VitalPoint Home aids patient’s to slow down progression of chronic diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), diabetes, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and hypertension.
The contract of $100m will have the effect of lowering the cost of healthcare by providing better care, by acting as an early warning system to help detect signs of complications early on.
