TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - bioAnalytics Inc. is pleased to announce that
it has installed the UFIT® system from Biosign Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: BIO) in thirty
operatories in less than thirty days since introduction. The first five
Dental Clinics to utilize UFIT® under the HeartFriendly™ Dentist program are seeing the benefits of the
improving patient safety by monitoring patients' vital signs both before
and during dental surgery;
promoting patient wellness by detecting high blood pressure
(hypertension) in previously unaware patients;
reinforcing compliance and healthier lifestyle choices in patients with
established hypertension or heart disease;
augmented medical documentation through a secure web based server and
Dr. Sonny Kohli, MD FRCPC, CMO of bioAnalytics remarked: "As a physician
practicing internal medicine & critical care, I am keenly aware of the
social burden of the cardiovascular disease epidemic, which stresses
both physicians and their allied health professionals. A team-based
approach to prevention, through detection of risk factors,
reinforcement of patient compliance, and promotion of healthier living,
is essential to fighting this epidemic. Although the link between oral
health and cardiovascular disease has long been established
scientifically, dentists were not equipped to impact patient's health
in a systemic way - until now. The HeartFriendly™ Dentist program
empowers them to have such an impact. Dentists can and should play a
vital role in such a team-based approach to health care."
The HeartFriendly™ Dentist is available to Canadian dental offices on a
subscription basis. The monthly fee includes the groundbreaking UFIT® from Biosign Technologies Inc. (www.biosign.com), setup, installation and support. With UFIT®, dental professionals can take unlimited vital signs readings and
access securely those vital signs records remotely - at any time and
from anywhere where internet access is available. Dental professionals,
who have multiple operatories within their clinic, may purchase
additional UFIT® Pulse Acquisition Devices (PAD) for use within their practice.
Biosign's UFIT® virtual technology supports the use of multiple PAD devices, which can
be added to the same account, making UFIT® extremely cost effective and robust.
