American Academy of Private Physicians (AAPP) Selects Itamar-Medical’s
EndoPAT™ and WatchPAT™ Products to Promote Patient Wellness
CAESAREA, Israel -- March 11, 2013
Itamar-Medical (TASE: ITMR), the world's leader of noninvasive technology for
diagnosis of cardiovascular health, announced today that it has an agreement
with the American Academy of Private Physicians (AAPP) to include Itamar's
EndoPAT & WatchPAT testing to the innovative suite of diagnostics technologies
offered by AAPP physicians to their patients.
As pioneers in the new area of concierge medicine and private healthcare, AAPP
members are focused on improving the quality of patient care, strengthening
the bond between patients and their physicians, empowering patients as health
care consumers; and reducing the cost of health care through diligent
management of emerging health risks and chronic conditions.
By including EndoPAT and WatchPAT in AAPP's portfolio, member physicians will
be able to add a vital dimension to cardiac and sleep medicine management by
allowing early identification and treatment of endothelial dysfunction (a
precursor of cardiovascular disease) and sleep apnea (a major factor in
cardiovascular risk that has been shown to increase driving fatalities,
hypertension, atherosclerosis, and obesity). This will improve the quality of
patient care strengthening the bond between patients and their physician.
"One of our goals is to identify technologies that truly add value to our
members' practices as they strive to provide state-of-the-art health
management to their patients. I believe we have found two devices from one
highly innovative company that will enable our members to continue to lead
their communities in the early identification and management of cardiovascular
risk," said Tom Blue, Executive Director, American Academy of Private
“We are pleased to have developed a program that provides members of the AAPP
and their patients access to these latest breakthrough technologies, advancing
wellness through these critical measures of health,” said Marvin Slosman,
President, Itamar-Medical Inc. USA.
AAPP physicians will be introduced and trained on the EndoPAT and WatchPAT
devices during their annual members’ conference on March 22-23rd, 2013 in Palm
