Oxygen equipment OxyGo LLC has unveiled OxyGo FIT Connect, a Bluetooth-enabled portable oxygen concentrator (POC) that integrates with a wireless connectivity platform for remote monitoring.
The platform incorporates the My OxyGo Provider Dashboard and the My OxyGo App, which work together to provide real-time monitoring. That capability assists in troubleshooting problems, concentrator health checks, preventative maintenance, and geo-locating of patient’s POCs. Using their respective tools, both providers and patients can check battery life, column life, and oxygen purity with the touch of a button
“ … The new Bluetooth enabled unit and patient app, in conjunction with a provider focused and designed back end will improve patient outcomes by allowing patients and providers to communicate in real-time about their POC,” said Victoria Marquard-Schultz, CEO of OxyGo. “Patients on oxygen are always concerned about their next breath, and providers now will be able to ensure the patients are getting their required oxygen prescription... regardless of where in the world the patient is breathing.”
