AT&T and Zywie: IoT medical to treat cardiovascular disease

AT&T and Zywie, Inc. are helping physicians diagnose and treat patients with cardiovascular disease faster with medical IoT. AT&T will provide wireless connectivity for the remote monitoring solution called “ZywiePro”. The IoT medical device will run on AT&T Control Center. The companies are seeking to offer highly secure, accessible monitoring for those suffering from heart and blood vessel disease. The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the healthcare industry by securely delivering valuable data in near real-time.
The ZywiePro solution uses mobile and cloud technology to detect cardiovascular arrhythmias in patients. It sends doctors detailed diagnostics of the cardiovascular health of their patients. “Network reliability is critical when wirelessly connecting medical and health devices” said Steve Burger, area vice president, Connected Health, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T. “Zywie has entrusted us to provide the highly secure wireless connectivity needed to make remote monitoring possible.”
The device can monitor the heart’s activity for a minimum of 24-hours and a maximum of 30 days. It detects rhythm irregularities and wirelessly transmits them as they occur over the AT&T network.

We are constantly looking for ways to make the ZywiePro solution better and collaborating with AT&T has provided the level of confidence that we expect in transmitting data securely and being able to scale,

said Alex Armstrong, COO and Founder of Zywie Inc.
