CompuMed, a medical informatics company serving the healthcare community with diagnostic software solutions, has announced that it began shipping its CardioGram enhanced electrocardiogram machines to Federal Aviation Administration Senior Aviation Medical Examiners.
Senior Aviation Medical Examiners (Sr AMEs) are doctors providing pilot medical screening services required by the aeromedical certification division of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
CompuMed stated that its CardioGram machines are compatible with the FAA’s ECG Administrative Data System and are able to transmit ECG data directly to the FAA. CompuMed has added 25 Sr AMEs to its customer base during the first step of the program.
Maurizio Vecchione, president and CEO OF CompuMed, said: FAA announcement today represents the first significant expansion of the company’s ECG business outside the prison and correctional marketplace. It is the first step in our strategy to accelerate growth of our CardioGram business by targeting new markets.
