The LifeWatch TeleViewer will also be part of their newly announced series of remote patient monitoring service packages called TeleClinics™. The iPad’s ease-of-use, portability, convenience and multi-touch capabilities are well suited to the timely review of patient remote monitoring reports that provide comprehensive and actionable information for Physicians. These features will help physicians increase their productivity and standard of care through a streamlined work flow and immediate access to critical patient data that enables faster diagnosis and better treatment options, and to this end, helps eliminate unnecessary and costly hospitalizations and readmissions.

The TeleViewer takes advantage of the large iPad screen to produce clear and accurate viewing images of both reports and ECG strips.
