RadNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RDNT), a leading provider of ambulatory managed services for the healthcare industry, today announced that it is providing bluetooth connectivity from its telemetry monitoring radios for its ambulatory business customers. RadNet’s three wireless transmitters currently installed in the Boston area range in both wired and wireless configurations as appropriate, depending on customer needs and cost-savings.
RadNet customers have been able to connect their RED multiplexer radiotherapy machines (M2R) to this wireless technology through RadNet’s three Wireless transmitters. RadNet’s Wireless transmitters are hardware-only, with an optional module available that allows EMS radios to connect to the wireless system by connecting to RadNet’s routing control module, thereby reducing the device footprint. This enables EMS radios to connect to the wireless system by sending reliable signal over low power or low power bands, and ensuring the removal of redundant “bullet radio” towers across the system.
“We are very excited to offer EMS radios to the hospitals across the dialysis business for more flexible connection options,” commented Jay Gooding, CEO of RadNet. “A continuous wireless connectivity provides tremendous benefit for physicians, nurses and patients and is now standard feature in our hospital telemetry monitoring system.”
Paul Stewart, RadNet’s director of product marketing for Brio Monitoring Systems, the organization responsible for implementing RadNet’s mobile technology strategy, said, “We think our radios work well with our EMS radios because they both support the same technologies, we have to connect to the radio, and we can easily relaunch through the wireless network. By building this infrastructure and deploying the RADNet™ system, RadNet has ensured that EMS radios will work with our MIS-M2R radios, which we expect will not only save money but also increase our user experience and reliability.”
