Aerotel Medical Systems received a special award at the Med-e-Tel 2012 Conference, which was held at 18-20 April 2012 in Luxembourg, for its tenth consecutive participation at the prestigious event.

The award was presented to Ofer Atzmon, vice president for business development and marketing at Aerotel, who participated at Med-e-Tel and gave two presentations at the event.

"The prestigious award illustrates well the leading position of Aerotel in the fields of telemedicine and eHealth," said Atzmon. "We are proud of being at the forefront of one of the world's fastest growing industries."

During the conference it was well illustrated that governments, healthcare providers and health insurers are turning more and more towards telemedicine and eHealth solutions. These solutions are used as one of the tools to cope with the effects of today's ageing society and tomorrow's reduced healthcare workforce and to address the constant pressure on healthcare budgets and the need for more qualitative and cost effective healthcare.

During the Med-e-Tel conference, Aerotel has showcased its innovative mobile health and telemedicine solutions, including: personal GPS location and tracking system, GeoSkeeper; wireless homecare hub for chronic patient monitoring and disease management, Connect-Cell; and the HeartView, a personal hand-held 12-lead ECG monitor.

Med-e-Tel is an official event of the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH) and the international federation of national associations, who represent their country’s Telemedicine and eHealth stakeholders.
