The Benefits of Wireless Medical Devices

Randall Fincke, who earned a master of science in engineering design from Tufts University, has over 25 years’ experience in the medical device industry. Over the course of his career, he has designed and produced new and innovative wireless telemedicine monitors, clinical handsets, and handheld defibrillators for hospitals, corporations, as well as the military and government. Currently, Randall Fincke serves as president of Advent Medical Products, which he founded in 2004.

Just as advances in medical care are crucial for improvements in patient outcomes, new technology and solution based applications provide new opportunities for physicians to deliver better quality of care. New medical devices, especially those where real time data and critical clinical information can make a significant difference. The ease, speed, and availability of clinical data can improve health care delivery for patients. It improves the quality of care, helps to reduce costs, and with the improved safety can reduce the risk of complications as well.

For example, a wireless device such as a portable heart monitor continuously tracks a patient’s heart activity and vital signs throughout the day and interacts through a wireless network with other technologies such as an implanted pacemaker, defibrillator, and or other device set to react to drastic changes. The patient’s heart data can simultaneously be transmitted to a physician or the medical team via the Internet or a telemedicine monitoring service for review and analysis. This allows patients to receive better care, and it allows doctors and clinicians to monitor their condition more closely, while administering medications more effectively.
