Philips debuts IntelliVue Telemetry System
Philips Medical Systems has launched the new IntelliVue Telemetry System for bidirectional communication between patient-worn transceivers and bedside monitors, and a central station with remote clinician access.  
According to Philips, the system, which operates in the protected 1.4 GHz Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) band, coexists with Philips digital telemetry systems, wireless bedside and transport monitors, and even a hospital's own WiFi systems. The IntelliVue Telemetry System features Smart-Hopping technology to avoid interference and seek out the strongest available signal.
In related company news, Philips announced new updates to its IntelliVue Information Center and enhancements to Philips Telemetry System transmitters. The newest release of the IntelliVue Information Center supports flexible wired/wireless access and integration with existing Philips telemetry systems. All Philips telemetry systems can coexist in the same space without interference, making it possible for hospitals to phase their transition between systems.
