BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ExpressMD™ Solutions, a provider of remote patient monitoring systems and services for patients with chronic illnesses, today announced that it has signed a non-exclusive national distribution agreement with Rotech Healthcare Inc. for the Electronic House Call™ remote patient monitoring solution.  Initially, Rotech will be providing ExpressMD's solution to chronically ill patients who have been referred by a national health plan.  The health plan wants to reduce rehospitalizations for at risk patients as well as the severity of reoccurrences by having Rotech implement this innovative telehealth solution.

"The Electronic House Call solution adds exciting new capabilities to Rotech's existing product line, providing our customers with a new approach to improving care for patients with chronic conditions," said Mary Clark, Chief Contracts Officer at Rotech Healthcare Inc.

The Electronic House Call solution allows providers to remotely monitor the vital signs of their patients using the Web, make adjustments to patient care plans and intervene in a timely manner if their patients encounter any issues before they become an acute care incident. On-call providers are automatically notified if a patient's vital signs are outside of the limits pre-set by their care providers.

"We look forward to contributing to Rotech's success in the healthcare marketplace by providing them with solutions that help to improve patient care and compliance. ExpressMD Solutions will continue to support the growing needs of distributors as well as our direct customers," said Ronald Mills, Managing Director of ExpressMD Solutions.
