Cardiocom's Commander Telehealth System provides an opportunity to proactively manage patient care.

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."
