LifeWatch Services has entered into a collaboration agreement with a developer of web-based information systems for cardiology centers, Perminova.

Under the agreement, Perminova’s information system designed for electrophysiology, Perminova EP, will integrate reports from LifeWatch’s cardiac monitoring and telemetry products directly into Perminova’s cloud-based system.

The integration facilitates physicians, nurses, technologists and other staff with a single source for patient information.

Perminova president and CEO Craig Collins said, "In a larger sense, medical device integration between Perminova and LifeWatch creates true interoperability, one of the primary objectives in the advancement of health information technology today."

LifeWatch chairman and CEO Yacov Geva said, " Medical device integration may also help relieve doctors, nurses and technologists of the burden of creating hard copy documentation, allowing them to spend more time on direct patient care."
