Accuhealth Partners With Telli Health To Provide The World's First IoT FDA Approved SpO2 Meter Powered By Sigfox

Bringing quality healthcare to rural communities and 190,000,000 households across the United States


McAllen, Texas (Newwire) - Released: October 29, 2021


Accuhealth announced today that they are proud to partner with Telli Health to provide the world's first FDA certified and approved, plug-and-play Sigfox SpO2 meter. Telli Health developed the hardware and Accuhealth bought the first 5,000 units and will be the first to deploy the
devices. The hardware is being tested in various cities around the United States and will ultimately be
deployed to bring more equitable access to quality healthcare in rural communities that traditionally
do not have access.

Telli Health began developing this innovative product after Accuhealth discovered a gap in the marketplace for wireless-enabled SpO2 (pulse oximetry) devices. This wireless SpO2 meter uses the IoT spectrum Sigfox. Sigfox was favored for its ease of deployment and low-cost and low-power
requirements, allowing the devices to be small and portable, a requirement for patient adoption.

Accuhealth CEO Stephen Samson commented,

“Bluetooth, in our opinion, is not an ideal medium for remote patient monitoring, and it creates barriers to entry. As more smart-enabled devices come out, the technology trend is that they will be connected to an IoT network. With COVID-19, we see this SpO2 meter as having a significant advantage due to the low cost and low power requirements. These
devices can now be deployed anywhere in the United States and will natively work across most populated areas in the country. We look forward to bringing innovative, quality healthcare to rural communities across the country and eventually expanding as a Telehealth option globally.""

While Accuhealth begins deploying this technology, remote patient monitoring benefits have changed
in certain states, allowing the wireless SpO2 meters to be even more significant in remote patient
monitoring. For instance, as of October 1, 2020, newly enacted Texas Medicaid
telemonitoring guidelines allow for SpO2 monitoring, with documentation requirements stating that
telemonitoring equipment must be capable of measuring and transmitting oxygen levels in the blood,
among other metrics.

SpO2 is a critical biometric that indicates how effectively a patient is breathing and how well blood is
being transported throughout the body, a key indicator for COVID-19 patients.
