It’s long been known that Hypertension or High Blood Pressure is the prime cause of death and disability. Globally, about 1.3 billion people are affected by it and it causes about 8.5 million deaths annually. But, the number of deaths can be reduced by ensuring the availability of real-time ABPM service and its data analysis using telemedicine. How is ambulatory blood pressure monitoring done with cloud-based analysis software? Here we talk about based on Hingmed ABPM. Hingmed ABPM cloud-based management solution assures accessibility of real-time BP data to improve research and diagnosis of hypertension.
How Hingmed WBP-02A Ambulatory BP Monitor Cloud-based Analysis software works:
The software mainly consists of two modules, one module is the terminal software which is used for uploading & managing patients’ information, programming ABPM, and report download. The other module is central software which is commonly known as Blood Pressure Information System or BPIS and is mainly used for receiving data. So, doctors can analyze the data and generate & distribute the reports to the terminal software.
Step1: Collecting Data
As the ambulatory blood pressure monitor data will be uploaded to the BPIS, the terminal software is mainly designed for nurses or healthcare providers to interact with patients directly. After setting up the terminal software, health practitioners need to log in and connect the ABPM to the computer in order to upload the blood pressure data from the remote sites. The patient’s information needs to be filled out and the blood pressure monitor needs to be programmed to upload the data on the central server. With the terminal software, doctors can control the display reading and manual measurement and set the interval times of the monitor.
Step 2: Data Upload
Patients can wear the ambulatory blood pressure monitor on their upper arm once the device is programmed and the patient’s data successfully upload to the terminal software. The physician needs to do a manual measurement to start the 24-hour BP monitoring and check whether the monitor works well and the patient can go home with the WBP-02A and enjoy fully automatic blood pressure monitoring for the next 24 hours without any interference. In those 24 hours, BP data will be uploaded to the BPIS by terminal software in real-time and the server will manage the data automatically so doctors can analyze the data.
Step 3: BP Data Analysis
During the 24-hour monitoring period by our 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitors, doctors can collect the BP data on the central software system and analyze the live uploaded data. There will be audio and visual alarms every time a new BP reading comes from the terminal software. The doctors in the central hospital will do the analysis and give the diagnosis report. The diagnosis report will be uploaded to the system and sent to the terminal site after approval. The central software has different statistical indexes including BP load, Morning Surge, BP smoothness index, CV, ASI, etc. for better analysis and enhances the doctors’ understanding.
Step 4: Report Download
Telehealthcare providers can download the report after it is sent from BPIS. They can also customize the report with any options including the doctor’s signature and logo doctors will need and print it.
All the above stated how is Hingmed ambulatory blood pressure monitoring done with cloud-based analysis software. And in telemedicine, it becomes very convenient for patients and healthcare practitioners to use the HINGMED remote software to collect, and manage the data and analyze it.
It becomes very reliable software for doctors and researchers to share their expertise and Improve efficiency and capability of complicated diagnosis. Also, it reduces patients’ waiting time in central hospitals and ensures the availability of ABPM service in remote areas. Whether it is for general practitioners or researchers, HINGMED ABPM software is the best and most convenient cloud-based data management and analysis software for telemedicine in the market to study and make a concise and clear report.
