ScottCare's Innovo Provides New Telemetry Solutions

Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation clinics have to monitor their patients 24 hours a day before or after surgical procedures. The data gathered from this monitoring allows physicians to take the appropriate course of treatment for the patient. Using the right technology is critical in ensuring the data is usable with functionality for providing positive results. ScottCare Corporation, a provider of hardware and software technologies in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease, has announced the introduction of Innovo, a rechargeable digital transmitter serving cardiopulmonary rehabilitation clinics for the company’s VersaCare multi-parameter telemetry solution.

Innovo is being featured by the company at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) in Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 3-5, 2013.

The new transmitter was designed to give health practitioners a practical device with low maintenance and a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. It has an intelligent power save mode that puts the unit to sleep after a period of inactivity, and multiple customer-centric features. The unit is designed with durability to withstand daily wear and tear with a profile that is 30 percent smaller than previous generation of transmitters

The Innovo is compatible with telemetry systems of the company featuring both 3-wire and 5-wire leads, including VersaCare to meet customer needs.

The VersaCare multi-parameter telemetry monitoring platform is able to provide robust monitoring for any size rehab with capabilities for:

  • Diagnostic quality ECG traces with powerful functionality that can be tailored for each facility
  • Up to 48 cardiac and pulmonary channels of monitored and unmonitored patients per workstation with up to 16 telemetry channels per workstation with photo ID patient recognition
  • Adding telemetry channels one at a time and view monitored and unmonitored patients simultaneously
  • Three full minutes of active disclosure display and review and print multi-session reports while monitoring
  • Viewing telemetry channels on one or more screens with other patient data visible as preferred with features that is able to start, stop, pause or advance all channels simultaneously along with one-click modality advance

The platform also provides many security features including HIPAA compliance to protect data and personal information;  activity log for audit trail; optional encrypted hard drives and flash drives and propriety data base protection; user authentication with multi-level access control; and automatic lockdown after a period of inactivity.

ScottCare contracts ambulatory electrocardiographic and remote CIED device monitoring services for cardiologists and hospitals through its Ambucor Labor Services division, along with diagnostic monitoring, CIED patient data management, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, and EHR data integration solutions.
