May 10, 2007 – Cybernet Medical, a developer of telehealth technology for outpatient care, recently announced that future telehealth products based on its patented MedStar technology will leverage its outpatient Web-based electronic health record system in order to move away from proprietary outpatient medical data hub and presentation hardware appliances.
The MedStar electronic record system already supports data acquisition through phone, broadband, and database standards. The system also extends automated dialogs through a common platform to implement interactive voice response, Web-dialog response, and progressively more response and patient data acquisition systems through cellular infrastructure.
As part of this move, Cybernet Medical is also discontinuing the proprietary PALStar device. While Cybernet Medical will continue support for existing PALStar users, all future structured dialog products will be introduced through open platforms that use the public Web and cellular messaging standards that are embedded within the MedStar Web-based electronic medical record system.
