Award Recognizes Businesses that Deployed Successful IoT Solutions
OVERLAND PARK, Kan – Feb. 9, 2017 – Sprint (NYSE: S) announced today that a 2017 IoT Evolution Business Impact Award will be presented to Sprint and its client, BioTelemetry, Inc., by TMC and Crossfire Media at the IoT Evolution Conference & Expo on February 9, 2017. Sprint and BioTelemetry will present the winning case at the Expo.
The Business Impact Awards program recognizes a select group of companies and business leaders that have successfully leveraged IoT to solve a business issue, launch a new service or create revenue opportunities.
Sprint Business and BioTelemetry earned the Business Impact Award because, through their partnership, they solved a significant medical challenge. Physicians have had ongoing issues identifying cardiac arrhythmias using traditional monitoring devices because they are too dependent on patient interaction and have rudimentary algorithms that can miss potential life threatening arrhythmias.
Coupled with BioTelemetry’s best-in-class proprietary algorithm, the Sprint Command Center 2.0 Platform helped overcome this challenge by providing BioTelemetry an easy method of activating and deploying devices to support automated, real-time, remote patient monitoring. Sprint enables BioTelemetry to utilize thousands of wireless devices on a daily basis to monitor patients, helping to create efficiencies, minimize costs and provide better, more immediate patient care. Sprint custom IoT solutions empowers BioTelemetry to monitor patients remotely and provide accurate and timely diagnoses, leading to improved patient care.
“We’re honored to earn the Business Impact Award from IoT Evolution,” said Patricia Watkins, Director of Sales for the Internet of Things at Sprint. “We’re especially proud to be recognized for developing a solution using our network and IoT technology for physicians and patients that solves a long-time challenge in medicine.”
Joseph Capper, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioTelemetry, Inc., added: “We are excited to receive the Business Impact Award. Through our long partnership with Sprint, we have revolutionized remote cardiac monitoring. We believe our ongoing relationship will enable us to remain on the forefront of the telemedicine movement.”
“The opportunity within IoT in business continues to transform productivity, and we are delighted to highlight Sprint’s success in deploying IoT,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, IoT Evolution. “We congratulate Sprint and BioTelemetry and recognize that there are more and more opportunities in the Enterprise being solved by IoT every day.”
