Feb. 10, 2011 (Canada NewsWire Group) --
TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - bioAnalytics Inc. is pleased to announce that it has installed the UFIT® system from Biosign Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: BIO) in thirty operatories in less than thirty days since introduction. The first five Dental Clinics to utilize UFIT® under the HeartFriendly™ Dentist program are seeing the benefits of the program, including:
- improving patient safety by monitoring patients' vital signs both before and during dental surgery;
- promoting patient wellness by detecting high blood pressure (hypertension) in previously unaware patients;
- reinforcing compliance and healthier lifestyle choices in patients with established hypertension or heart disease;
- augmented medical documentation through a secure web based server and processing engine.
Dr. Sonny Kohli, MD FRCPC, CMO of bioAnalytics remarked: "As a physician practicing internal medicine & critical care, I am keenly aware of the social burden of the cardiovascular disease epidemic, which stresses both physicians and their allied health professionals. A team-based approach to prevention, through detection of risk factors, reinforcement of patient compliance, and promotion of healthier living, is essential to fighting this epidemic. Although the link between oral health and cardiovascular disease has long been established scientifically, dentists were not equipped to impact patient's health in a systemic way - until now. The HeartFriendly™ Dentist program empowers them to have such an impact. Dentists can and should play a vital role in such a team-based approach to health care."
The HeartFriendly™ Dentist is available to Canadian dental offices on a subscription basis. The monthly fee includes the groundbreaking UFIT® from Biosign Technologies Inc. (www.biosign.com), setup, installation and support. With UFIT®, dental professionals can take unlimited vital signs readings and access securely those vital signs records remotely - at any time and from anywhere where internet access is available. Dental professionals, who have multiple operatories within their clinic, may purchase additional UFIT® Pulse Acquisition Devices (PAD) for use within their practice. Biosign's UFIT® virtual technology supports the use of multiple PAD devices, which can be added to the same account, making UFIT® extremely cost effective and robust.
