Advanced Micronic Devices Limited healthcare division, AMDL Health, a provider of medical equipment and devices and a group company of Opto Circuits (India) launched eTraq for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

Through the BlackBerry PlayBook and eTraq application, doctors can access local patient monitors connected to the hospital’s Central Monitoring System (CMS). Once the CMS receives data from local patient monitors it can display a patient’s vital information in real time to care providers. The data is archived for compliance analysis and the incoming data is monitored for anomalies. The solution is also used by ambulance services, where a patient’s condition can be analyzed by the physician ahead of arrival at the emergency facility

“Providing real-time critical patient information to enable quick diagnostics is the goal of the eTraq Application for the BlackBerry PlayBook,” said Arindam Sen, Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Micronic Devices Limited.

Developed by i2iTelesolutions, the eTraq Application allows medical practitioners to use a BlackBerry PlayBook to remotely access multiple patients’ physiological parameters collected through eTraq Transport Monitors.

eTraq Application can help doctors to make timely decisions by eliminating the need for the doctor’s physical presence at the place where the medical reports are generated.

“The BlackBerry PlayBook is a powerful and versatile platform and its ultra-portable design makes it conducive in a hospital environment. We are pleased to support AMDL Health and i2iTelesolutions in their efforts to bring the unique eTraq remote monitoring application to medical practitioners in India,” said Annie Mathew, Head of Alliances and Developer Relations in India for Research In Motion.
