BOGOTA, Colombia, September 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Aerotel Medical Systems, a pioneer in Telemedicine solutions, has been granted INVIMA certification for the company's Digital, high-resolution ECG devices by Colombia's National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute.
The INVIMA certification clears for commercialization the entire HeartLine ECG monitoring line, including Aerotel's new HeartView P12/8Mobile 3G-transmission-enabled ECG, which enables the transmission of comprehensive ECG data from any place at any time. The recorded ECG is automatically transmitted via cellular network to a cardiac call center for immediate diagnosis by using Aerotel's HeartLine Receiving Station (HRS) or any other compatible system.
The certification was granted to Aerotel following the appointment of a renowned local medical devices distributor as part of the company's strategic plan to expand its presence in the fast-growing Latin American market. Colombia is seen by Aerotel as a highly attractive market for its innovative telecardiology solutions.
According to a 2014 Colombian Ministry of Health Report, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death responsible for one out of every three deaths.
Colombia, alongside Mexico, Peru and Brazil, is considered a regional pioneer in the implementation of eHealth projects. The number of Colombian health service providers that offered telecardiology surpassed 600 by the end of 2015.
"Despite the impressive development, most Colombian providers still use transtelephonic ECG consultations," said Ionatan Galeano, Aerotel's Marketing & Sales Manager for Latin America. "By adopting Aerotel's fully digital, cost-effective, and quality certified solution, service providers can remotely monitor their patients efficiently, reliably, and at a very affordable price, using cutting edge technology."
Aerotel's high-resolution ECG devices, as well as other innovative telemedicine solutions, will be presented at Medica 2016 (Booth 9C01), which will take place in Dusseldorf, Germany November 14-17, 2016.
