eCardio Participates in 2nd Annual Digital Health Summit at CES

HOUSTON, Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- eCardio is scheduled to participate in the Digital Health Summit at the 2011 International CES at the Las Vegas Convention Center. eCardio Vice President of Information Technology, Andrew Arroyo, will be contributing in a discussion panel titled The Role of Remote Monitoring in Digital Healthcare Systems on January 7, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. PST.

The Digital Health Summit at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show will focus on the booming market of consumer-based health and wellness innovations that combine technology and healthcare. In addition to diagnosing and battling disease, today's generation of high-tech healthcare products and services will be the catalyst for better managed healthcare. The panel will introduce new technologies crucial for managing care and will address how telehealth devices and communication technologies are putting consumers in the driver's seat.

"It's important to understand the changing landscape in healthcare. Patients are becoming more empowered to take charge of their own health, including self monitoring and participating in treatment decisions. Due to advances in technology, they now have tools at their disposal to do so," states Arroyo. "Additionally, remote monitoring helps providers by enabling them to more quickly and accurately diagnose and treat patients before conditions escalate. When dealing with heart problems, timing is crucial. Early intervention saves not only lives, but also healthcare costs. Remote monitoring can reduce unnecessary trips to the emergency department and prevent re-admissions to the hospital."

This is the first year eCardio has sponsored the Digital Health Summit at CES. Now in its second year, the daylong Summit will feature a highly anticipated panel of industry speakers and thought leaders who will examine the fast-growing digital health industry, and take a look at the trends and technologies leading the way. Fellow panel participants include more than 65 companies bringing together healthcare industry executives, developers, manufacturers, buyers, distributors, service providers, academicians, and more.
