Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2015
Tunstall Healthcare Group, the world leader in remote care and safety monitoring, has entered into a reseller agreement with QMedic, via its US subsidiary, Tunstall Americas. Under the terms of the agreement, Tunstall will distribute QMedic, an award winning and innovative home-based health and activity monitoring solution, through Tunstall’s nationwide network of local health care service providers.
QMedic combines a wrist worn medical alert button with advanced personal activity monitoring and cloud based analytics and reporting. QMedic has been designed specifically to support independent living. Its trend analysis allows a remote caregiver to be alerted by an automated email or text alert when an exception to a user’s regular pattern of activity occurs or if a particular trend is developing that may indicate an improvement or deterioration in their well-being. The solution has been proven in the northeast United States to improve patient engagement, reduce social isolation, and enhance well-being.
Casey Pittock, President and CEO of Tunstall Americas stated, “QMedic represents a critical element of our Connected Health strategy. Our high-touch personal monitoring services and broad distribution capabilities, combined with QMedic’s powerful health and activity tracking cloud platform will enable our healthcare partners to offer true Connected Health solutions to their patients and customers.”

Collectively, these products and services deliver a seamless connected care experience for people.
Sombit Mishra, co-founder and CEO of QMedic, said of the partnership, "Historically, wearable medical alert services have been reactive, alerting caregivers only after an emergency event. As the healthcare system mandates new business models that bring user-friendly, proactive monitoring services to patients, providers and payers, our partnership with Tunstall to provide unprecedented two-way value to patients and caregivers across the spectrum and thereby grow the market for technology-enabled home health services.”
