The Vios Monitoring System is designed to optimize the management of patients through the continuum of care, providing a user-friendly, lower-cost and more efficient patient monitoring and care coordination platform than existing options. Utilizing sensors, unique signal processing IP, and proprietary software that runs on standard off-the-shelf hardware Vios medical can track patient vital signs on a variety of standard mobile devices, tablets, and computers. Healthcare providers will be able to monitor patient data in near real-time from any location without the enormous dependence on expensive hospital IT infrastructure.
