CardioComm Solutions to begin immediate rollout of GEMSTM for Windows 7 remote ECG analysis, data management software to extensive base of current US health care providers and customers.
TORONTO, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2014 / CardioComm Solutions, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EKG) (“CardioComm Solutions” or the “Company”), a global medical provider of electrocardiogram (“ECG”) acquisition and data management software solutions, is pleased to announce it will launch its new Global ECG Management System release (GEMSTM WIN), a Windows 7 compatible version of the Company’s GEMSTM software technology in June 2014.
The Company’s GEMSTM software is an industry standard clinic and service provider based software system used for remote ECG acquisition, analysis and data management for cardiac arrhythmia monitoring and implantable device follow up of patients by health care providers and services across the globe. Remote patient monitoring and follow up is a critical operational component of every cardiology practice internationally and gaining rapid adoption across the entire health care landscape.
CardioComm Solutions’ release of GEMSTM WIN is in response to the anticipated end of Microsoft support for Windows XP in April of 2014. The GEMSTM WIN software release will allow for functional operation of GEMSTM on the Windows 7 Operating System. Direct communications with existing GEMSTM customers and scheduling of GEMSTM WIN installations will begin in April. The Company confirms that GEMSTM WIN has been designed to maintain the exact functionality with familiar navigation and customizations that CardioComm Solutions customers previously had with their existing GEMSTM systems on the Windows XP Operating System.
“Moving to the new GEMSTM WIN release will ensure minimum downtime associated with the typical need for staff re-training, education and/ or application redevelopment of customer preferred reporting and operational capabilities. The aggressive marketing and promotions planned for the release of GEMSTM WIN for the Windows 7 OS compatible platform is anticipated to generate immediate sales revenue, market share growth and positive operating results for 2014,” said Simi Grosman, member of the Company’s board of directors.
“We are very pleased to offer our new, Windows 7 compatible version of GEMSTM to our existing customers,” commented Etienne Grima, CEO of CardioComm Solutions. “The GEMSTM WIN system will provide remote patient monitoring of cardiac arrhythmia and implantable device patients every day through health care providers and cardiac monitoring services. We will continue to enhance the GEMSTM technology platform to meet the current and future needs of the health care community as technology advances. This Windows 7 based release paves the way for the exciting introductions of future releases of our ECG interpretation and management technologies and service solutions in the coming year.”
“Our GEMSTM for Windows 7 release is a welcomed and exciting development that will solidify our technology provider relationship with hundreds of cardiology-based clinical providers and monitoring services across the United States and internationally,” commented Dan Pawlik, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CardioComm Solutions. “For those customers who wish to continue operations with the existing features and benefits of the GEMSTM-3 XP platform, this upgrade provides a nearly seamless transition. For new customers, we can now provide the benefits of GEMSTM and our future system enhancements without eminent Operating System obsolesce.”
