RTX Healthcare has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA for its RTX3370 Telehealth monitor for patients outside hospitals. The system, designed to allow patients with chronic diseases to live more independently, monitors patients' vital signs from peripheral devices and collates subjective patient information from questionnaires; it then transmits the data to a central clinical information system. Peripheral devices that can be used with the Telehealth Monitor include scales, blood pressure monitors, blood glucose meters, peak flow meters and oxygen saturation meters. Noerresundby, Denmark-based RTX recently joined the Continua Health Alliance - a non-profit group working towards deciding the best technical standards for home healthcare monitoring. RTX Healthcare is a division of Nordic-listed company RTX Telecom.
