PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Sept. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCBB:MDHI), manufacturer of the MediPendantTM, the first fully-monitored medical alarm system that allows you to speak and listen directly through the pendant, announced today that it has formed an alliance with software industry leader Micro Key Solutions™ in the development of a private-label, proprietary monitoring software solution for the home healthcare/hospital industry to be known as Medi-Monitoring™.
The Medi-Monitoring ™software will be designed to be used for various healthcare providers such as hospitals and large healthcare companies, as well as small privatized nursing companies, and in-home patient service based businesses. Many of these providers see the benefits of personal emergency response systems (PERS), and want to provide their patients with the additional service of PERS, which gives their patient added safety and security when they are discharged and return home. The patient now has some peace of mind, knowing that they can get help immediately if needed.
With the Medi-Monitoring™ solution, the healthcare company will have a customizable software and hardware package that will enable them to provide their own monitoring services to their patients. Medical alarms will be monitored directly by trained hospital staff members, instead of an independent call center operator. The result is that the hospital does not have to depend on third party information services for their patients, but instead can now monitor patients/clients themselves.
"This is a great opportunity for Medical Alarm Concepts™," said Howard Teicher, CEO. "By offering these type of services, we open up markets and enable growth in an often 'hard to enter' segment of the market," said Teicher. "Providing a turnkey solution like this, with state of the art hardware and software, is exactly what large institutions are looking for going forward," adds Steve Beeferman, Director of Home and Healthcare Services. "It's the future of healthcare. Healthcare providers can monitor their patients at all times. It's very exciting."
Implementation of this program into several hospitals is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2011.
