The number of people suffering from cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes mellitus and COPD worldwide is increasing year-on-year. These conditions result in reduced quality of life and a shorter life expectancy, and put a huge strain on the healthcare sector.
By using the latest telemedicine treatment methods, doctors, clinics, research institutes and healthcare providers are working on improving care and enhancing patients’ quality of life. Reliable and compatible solutions which are easy to operate are crucial to the success of these telemedicine methods. These solutions should also be flexible enough to meet the requirements of the care concept and the treatment method.
The IEM eHealth solutions have been developed on this basis, and enable the monitoring of all standard vital signs ranges. By combining our partners’ innovative healthcare programmes with IEM eHealth services, we work together to improve people’s health.

The relevant requirements for designing healthcare projects or implementing telemedicine products for everyday use in practices and hospitals vary widely. In light of this, IEM eHealth solutions are modular in structure, with an offering that encompasses hardware, data management, software, coaching, and service packages; this modular approach means we can supply you with just the services you need for your projects. The excellent interoperability of our solutions also makes it possible to integrate them with the components you already use (e.g. existing patient software).
Hardware - measurement of all standard vital signs
Different monitors can be used to record different vital signs depending on the underlying clinical picture. IEM gives you the tools to measure all standard vital signs with a single product, so you don’t need an armoury of different standalone solutions. Further monitors can also be integrated at your request, to create a single, straightforward system that significantly lightens the workload.

For telemedicine solutions to be effective, it is crucial that the chosen technologies are secure, reliable, and user-friendly.
With this in mind, IEM has integrated all vital signs in one standard complete system. Your patients’ measurement data is transmitted completely anonymously, secured by the eConnect transmission modem or by GSM network modules that are integrated into monitors which are certified as medicinal products.
Together with the IEM gateway server, (medicinal products) form the core of the complete solution. The powerful, fail-safe gateway server processes your patients’ vital data while adhering to the strictest security standards, and transmits the data – encrypted and anonymous – to IEM software applications or to your existing database solution.

Digital blood pressure measurement (follow-up) in medical practices
Digital blood pressure measurement in a medical practice both increases the reliability of the blood pressure measurement, and significantly reduces the workload for the treating doctor. For conventional treatment of high blood pressure, several doctor’s appointments are usually necessary. If the physician opts for the digital blood pressure measurement route, the patient is given a home telemedicine blood pressure monitor straight after the diagnosis is made. From this, the doctor automatically receives each measurement in the IEM software and in the practice administration system. Automated weekly reports allow the treating doctor to make therapeutic decisions with just one look. If necessary, medication can be adjusted with just a quick phone conversation. After around six to eight weeks, blood pressure can often be regulated quite easily, saving a considerable amount of time for both doctor and patient.

Heart disease healthcare projects
Chronic heart disease is one of the most widespread internal diseases in the industrial world. It involves multiple visits to the doctor, and is also the most-frequently cited reason for hospital stays in Germany; the disease clearly exerts a heavy load on the patient and also entails considerable healthcare costs.
The care situation can generally be greatly improved through the use of eHealth solutions for targeted weight monitoring. Along with a significant reduction in mortality rates, the hospitalisation rate can also be appreciably lowered, leading to improved quality of life for the patient, and significantly reduced treatment costs.
