leader in developing and manufacturing home telemonitoring equipment and
chronic disease management software, today announced that it has achieved ISO

the risks involved with the design and manufacture of medical devices.

independent third-party, that Cardiocom operates their Medical Device QMS in
accordance with their standard.
Certification under the ISO standard was granted to Cardiocom in
recognition of their superior compliance with requirements for implementation
of comprehensive quality management systems. These systems include the
operational procedures used in the design and manufacture of Cardiocom's home
telemonitoring products. Cardiocom's investment in training and continuous
quality control, enable the company to provide the highest quality remote home
monitoring solutions for patients with chronic disease.
"Our success in achieving ISO 13485:2003 certification is due to the
outstanding dedication and teamwork of our employees who embrace our quality
