Malvern, PA – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – December 1, 2016 – BioTelemetry, Inc. (NASDAQ:BEAT), the leading wireless medical technology company focused on the delivery of health information to improve quality of life and reduce cost of care, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Telcare Medical Supply, Inc. and associated assets (“Telcare”), increasing the Company’s presence in the large and rapidly growing digital population health management market. As an early stage technology-enabled service platform, Telcare was the first company to receive FDA clearance for a cellular-enabled Blood Glucose Monitoring (“BGM”) system.

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Reps. Mike Thompson (D-CA) Gregg Harper (R-MS), Diane Black (R-TN) and Peter Welch (D-VT) today introduced H.R. 2948, the Medicare Telehealth Parity Act of 2015. The bipartisan legislation will expand coverage of telehealth services under Medicare by putting them on the path toward parity with in-person health care visits. The use of technology in health care has created new ways for practitioners and patients to deliver and access care. However, our current statutory and regulatory framework prevents many patients and providers from taking advantage of telemedicine’s advancements. This legislation recognizes and embraces these technological advancements and the impact it can have on improving patient care and outcomes, and lowering health care costs.
