Diagnostic device manufacturer Welch Allyn says it has purchased "substantially all assets " of Omaha-based HealthInterlink, a developer of an FDA-approved software-based telehealth platform incorporating wireless patient monitoring devices and a mobile gateway device, such as a tablet or smartphone.

The platform transmits vital signs data, answers to patient care plan questions, and patient messages to a HIPAA-compliant cloud-based web portal for patient data management by healthcare professionals and other authorized persons.

"Welch Allyn’s first foray into remote patient vital signs monitoring enables timely access to accurate data for more efficient and effective chronic disease management," company executives said. "The company will have a particular focus on helping primary care physicians and cardiologists manage hypertensive patients."
