Multi-Tech, a world leading manufacturer of cellular modems for M2M (machine-to-machine) communications, was selected by Physio-Control to enable its Advanced Wireless Gateway Project for its 3G mobile healthcare solution. In addition to using Multi-Tech’s Cellular Development Platform (CDP), a proven 3G hardware platform, Multi-Tech is providing design services, contract manufacturing and forward and reverse logistics to enable a 3G mobile healthcare solution.
Physio-Control leverages cellular technology to bridge field and hospital care teams to improve a patient’s time to treatment. The LIFEPAK® series of portable monitors/defibrillators, developed by Physio-Control, allows emergency responders to gather and send critical patient care information over the cellular network to the web-based LIFENET® data management platform. The Multi-Tech Cellular Development Platform, an all-in-one hardware and OpenEmbedded Linux environment, provides Physio-Control the flexibility to overlay its own quality control system, the ability to manage its software development internally and ensure a future–proof design.
“The Cellular Development Platform helps us stay equipped with the latest wireless technologies. As the amount of patient data collected continues to increase, faster data speeds allow us to send larger amounts of data more quickly,” said Randy Merry, Physio-Control Vice President for Business Development and Product Realization. “Multi-Tech also demonstrates an organizational commitment and approach to the solution that provides us with confidence they can help us deliver a successful deployment.”
“Multi-Tech is pleased to expand our relationship with Physio-Control and enable the next generation mobile healthcare solution,” said Annette Evans, Multi-Tech Systems Manager of Healthcare Sales. “The Advanced Wireless Gateway project leverages the strengths of both companies and helps achieve the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.”
