Telemed Diagnostic Management Inc. (TeleMED), a leader in developing customized electronic vital sign diagnostic management solutions, is pleased to announce that the major diagnostic laboratory service organization in southern Alberta, a subsidiary of Alberta Health Services (AHS) has exercised its option to extend its ECG service agreement with them. The subsidiary of AHS re-joins the over 3,000 medical practitioners, at over 700 locations across the country, who utilize the TeleMED proprietery software.
Under the new agreement, TeleMED, an ISO 13485 software developer will continue to provide infrastructure technology and services for ECG testing services in the organization’s Patient Service Centres and for its mobile testing services.
These two organizations have partnered for almost six years and during that time they have collaborated to convert ECG testing to a highly automated, highly transparent operation that provides a responsive, transparent and accountable service to patients in Calgary and nearby areas in southern Alberta.
“There is no doubt that cardiac care has improved for patients in Alberta since our partnership began”, says Asa Lebel, President of TeleMED. “Our successes have not only delivered benefits to the patients of our partner, they have also improved care in northern Alberta. This technology will be introduced to other parts of Alberta in the near future. We are pleased to be able to continue to work with such an innovative partner.”
