Nortek Security & Control Joins Connected Health Summit Panel on Remote Patient Monitoring


CARLSBAD, California, August 23, 2018 – Demonstrating its leadership in the new revenue-generating opportunities presented by today’s modern remote management solutions, Nortek Security & Control (NSC) today announced that VP of Channel Engagement John Carpenter will be joining a 2018 Connected Health Summit panel entitled, “Remote Patient Monitoring: Proving Outcomes and ROI.” The panel will take place on Thursday, August 30th at 11:15 AM PDT during the three-day summit at the Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.

“Remote monitoring devices are transforming the healthcare industry as we know it,” explained Carpenter, “and Numera® is at the forefront of industry innovation. I look forward to discussing the innovative new technologies available today, and how these new technologies create opportunities for patients, healthcare professionals, and channel partners.”

The panel will examine the efforts required to deliver a remote management solution and consumer attitudes toward remote care, including solutions that can deliver a strong doctor-patient bond to encourage patient engagement and better outcomes. By integrating remote management solutions for high-cost chronic conditions like diabetes or sleep disorders, healthcare providers stand to better manage these patients, improve treatment, save money, and deliver a better holistic experience for patients and family members.

Speakers will share insights on strategies to deliver a remote management solution through a single provider as well as through the coordinated efforts of multiple players. The full panel includes: John Carpenter, Vice President of Channel Engagement, Nortek Security and Control; Amy Cook, Director, Product Marketing, Connected Devices, ResMed; Mark Goettling, CEO, BodiMetrics; Himanshu Shah, Chief Information Officer, Care Innovations, an Intel company, with moderator: Jennifer Kent, Director, Research Quality & Product Development, Parks Associates.

At the Connected Health Summit, NSC will be showcasing the Numera® Libris®, the first Mobile Personal Emergency Response (mPERS) solution that’s auto-emergency aware with advanced fall-detection technology and equipped with the EverThere® Cloud Service for remote monitoring.

“Libris connects wirelessly with personal medical devices, collects and shares objective health measurement data, such as blood pressure, blood sugar, weight and blood oxygen levels, as well as activity data, location information, and fall events,” Carpenter added. “Data is uploaded to EverThere cloud platform and accessible via any smart device.”
