Welch Allyn, a subsidiary of global medical technology company Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HRC), and a physician-trusted leader in vital signs monitoring, announced that its home medical devices will now be offered as part of Honeywell's industry leading remote patient monitoring platform. The Welch Allyn Home™ 1700 Series Blood Pressure Monitor with SureBP® technology and Welch Allyn Home™ Weight Scale will now be offered as standard peripherals with Honeywell Life Care Solution's Genesis Touch remote patient monitoring kits. Genesis Touch monitors leverage an Android™ tablet for an intuitive, consumer-based, connected interface.
Welch Allyn Home devices will pair wirelessly with Honeywell's remote patient monitoring platform to capture and provide accurate readings, without requiring the patient to travel for a doctor's visit. The Welch Allyn Home 1700 Series Blood Pressure Monitor, with its simple, one-button operation, allows for fast and comfortable readings. The same SureBP technology used by doctors and hospitals worldwide enables an accurate measurement in just 20 seconds without overinflating or causing unnecessary discomfort. The Welch Allyn Home Scale features sense-on technology that captures measurements with ease, and the sleek and durable design includes a wide footprint and low profile for better stability.
"The recently released Welch Allyn Home platform demonstrates our commitment to continued innovation, improved patient outcomes and access to care," said Alton Shader, president of Hill-Rom's Front Line Care business. "We are honored and excited to be chosen by Honeywell Life Care Solutions as their standard for clinically-accurate remote patient monitoring."
"Honeywell is at the forefront of providing connected solutions that leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. We continue to work with patients and providers to deliver the highest quality-of-care outside of the traditional healthcare setting," said John Bojanowski, president of Life Care Solutions, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. "The Welch Allyn® devices are optimized for ease of use, deployment and implementation and will easily integrate with our technology."
