Cardiocom's Commander Telehealth System provides an opportunity to proactively manage patient care.

This information is immediately transmitted over a standard phone line or a cellular signal to the patient's nurse for review.
Cardiocom's Commander simplifies home monitoring for patients with complex medical conditions such as: heart failure, hypertension, COPD, asthma, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease. "Cardiocom is pleased to accept this prestigious award," said Cardiocom CEO and President, Daniel L. Cosentino.
