FREMONT, CA: Blipcare, a leading provider of telehealth solutions, announced the availability of its new cellular blood pressure monitor, the Blip BP 800. The Blip BP800 is explicitly designed to serve patients who need Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). It needs neither setup nor cables to the plugin. The monitor is the only device of its kind on the market that permits multiple users and even guest users.
Blipcare presents a wide range of connected devices, including weight scales, glucometers, pulse oximeters, peak flow meters, and blood pressure meters.“We have leveraged the deep experience that arose from serving Medicare, Medicaid and commercial populations to develop an innovative solution with new functionality at the lowest cost in the market,” said Dr. SukhwantKhanuja, CEO, Blipcare. “All elements of cost, including training, shipping, maintenance and support have been carefully addressed to achieve the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). The advanced analytics of biometric and behavioral data can now help prevent readmissions and reduce the cost of care.”
“The company’s 15 years of telehealth expertise also drove the thinking behind the product’s user experience. Blipcare designed the Blip BP800 so it can be used by two users and the occasional guest. A patient and his or her spouse need only one unit in the home, which reduces cost and clutter. “The solution is designed to fit into the user’s lifestyle,” Dr. Khanuja added. “All they have to do is take a reading!”
The Blip BP800 is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a Class II Medical Device. It comes with an ingrained 4G cellular radio and SIM card. The display encrypts all data at rest and transit for improved security. Additionally, the device is installed with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub for high scalability. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are accessible to integrate with Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and care management systems.
