EasyMed Implements Its Easy SmartCare Technology in the Cardiology Department of University Hospital Geneva (HUG)
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Nov 11, 2013) – EasyMed Services Inc. (www.EasyMedMobile.com) (CNSX:EZM)(OTCBB:EMYSF)(MUN:EY6) today announced that the cardiology department of HUG has begun using its Easy SmartCare technology.
EasyMed recently signed a deal to deliver a turnkey solution to the head of HUG’s 700-strong cardiac department, Professor Kalangos, one of the world’s foremost authorities on cardiovascular surgery. After heart surgery, patients are required to have regular blood tests, collectively known as a “coagulation study,” which determine how quickly their blood is clotting and, should the results fall outside prescribed norms, immediate action must be taken to prevent negative effects, which can, in extreme cases, result in death. Currently, a lab worker sends a message to the patient’s doctor, which may or may not be seen for some time, resulting in increased rates of patient mortality. Easy SmartCare has been installed into the cardiovascular surgery department at the hospital and each time a blood test result is input into the system that does not meet normal levels, a message is automatically sent to both the doctor’s and the patient’s mobile phones, allowing action to be taken urgently.
Mr. Tejinder Sahota, CEO of EasyMed Services said, “We are delighted to have our first paying client for Easy SmartCare and that our software has been installed at HUG to be used by the cardiology department to streamline its coagulation study process and, consequently, save lives. Easy SmartCare has also been approved as an enterprise-wide software solution at HUG, which makes it eligible for use by any other department requiring similar technology, a real coup for our company.”
Mr. Sahota continues, “Established in 1995, HUG is Switzerland’s first university hospital and, as an organization, comprises eight Geneva and forty outpatient public hospitals spread throughout the canton of Geneva. It is recognised internationally for cardiovascular surgery, with key expertise in cardiac surgery, and actively collaborates with the World Health Organisation in its eHealth/telemedicine referral centre. HUG supports over 900,000 outpatients, comprises over 1,800 beds and supports over 10,000 employees, including 1,519 doctors and 4,648 nurses.”
