Our customer manufactures cardiac implants, and provides the cardiac monitoring platform that medical professionals use to monitor hundreds of thousands of patients. Thousands of their patients use a legacy monitoring device that requires access to a traditional analog phone line. Usage trends for analog phone lines in the home continue to decline, and our customer was looking for a 2 phase solution: retrofit existing cardiac monitoring devices with a cellular appliance, and design the next generation of monitoring devices to be 'cellular ready'. The deployment model includes direct-to-patient, direct-to-clinic, and supplying a number of worldwide distribution centers with kits that are ready to transmit patient data using global wireless connectivity from 6 Mobile Network Operators. If that’s not enough, the solution requires regulatory compliance with global medical and cellular certifications.
Our solution uses every element of the Integron Value Stack: hardware selection and sourcing, firmware customization, country specific cellular certifications, packaging design, a multi-faceted fulfillment and billing model, wireless management, and asset tracking and traceability all using our WMS Platform. Our customer is able to organize tens of thousands of wireless assets into accounts and sub-accounts that align with their business model requirements, and how they will bill their customers. WMS™ supports wireless activity monitoring and alerts that give our customer visibility to wireless transmissions, usage, and overage for rate plan optimization. Finally, we provide a comprehensive lifecycle management service to manage device redeployment and retirement.
