Frost & Sullivan Lauds CSI’s Technological Capability in Developing the CSI Remote Monitoring Health System Kiosk
Palo Alto, Calif. — Based on its recent analysis of the remote patient monitoring market, Frost & Sullivan presents Computerized Screening Inc. (CSI) with the North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership in recognition of its leadership and vision in the remote monitoring kiosks for community-based or population health disease management applications.
CSI’s numerous years of leading the public kiosk space has given the company vital experience in this model of vital signs monitoring. By entering the dynamic health and disease management space with the CSI Health System Kiosk, an unattended clinic and remote medication management system, CSI is leveraging its expertise to capitalize on unique market conditions and end-user needs.
“Health Kiosks provide a vital avenue to tap the right remote monitoring payer groups, which is crucial for higher revenues from remote monitoring services,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Zachary Bujnoch, “Exploring avenues such as this show the market really beginning to establish itself and move toward its grand, billion dollar potential.”
“Convincing payers that a product or service is going to save them money is of critical importance in the remote monitoring market. Therefore the design of a system with the right payer group in mind is essential,” notes Bujnoch. “Recognizing the potential appeal of its Health System Kiosk, CSI developed a unique system for the remote healthcare and disease management market.”
The CSI Health System appeals to many untapped potential payer groups. For instance, in the emergency room setting, the Health System Kiosk can create Personal Health Records (PHR’s) / Electronic Medical Records (EMR’s), reducing paperwork in the admissions process.
In the corporate world, companies can reduce medical expenses by employing such a system for their employees on site. In remote areas this system can work independently as part of a clinic or pharmacy, greatly reducing the need for the long trip to a medical center.
For its ability to understand and recognize market needs and then develop an innovative product solution drawing on its long-standing technology leadership, CSI is the worthy recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Technology Leadership Award.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in technology leadership within its industry. The Award recognizes superiority in all stages of the technology life cycle incubation, adaptation, take-up and maturity – to ensure a continuous flow of improvements. By innovating leading-edge concepts the recipient has pioneered client applications.

Palo Alto, Calif. — Frost & Sullivan presented Computerized Screening, Inc.

The Award lauds CSI’s responsiveness to customer needs and continued focus on long and short-term customer profitability goals.

“CSI is proud of its accomplishments and this award recognizes our dedication to the use of technology to provide better healthcare and our innovative approach to disease management. We appreciate this award from Frost & Sullivan and the continued support of our clients, says Charles Bluth, Founder & CEO of CSI.”
CSI’s technology is non-invasive, fully automated and includes Telemedicine capabilities. It allows users to communicate immediately with healthcare providers and to simultaneously transfer screening test results and information to health care providers, insuring rapid response and treatment. Additional non-invasive devices such as pulse oximetry and spirometry can be integrated with the CSI Health System along with a port for the download of personal glucometer and other test results. CSI Health Systems also incorporate a Personal Health Record (PHR / Electronic Medical Record (EMR) feature, affording consumers the opportunity to compile data and store test results, and to communicate the results to their healthcare professional electronically or through a printout.
CSU Health System Kiosks are tailored according to client specifications and contain customized information on local health care providers including physicians, hospitals and crisis centers. “A particularly innovative feature of these Kiosks is that employers can choose how their customized Health System stores data,” notes Garcia.
According to employers and validation studies by renowned Universities including MIT’s Agelab, and the Loma Linda University School of Public Health, CSI Health System Kiosks provides user-friendly, highly accurate blood pressure readings, substantially increasing consumer monitoring convenience. CSI Health Systems are FDA approved and certified ISO9001:2000 and ISO1345:2003.
Employers are also of the opinion that the monitoring stations have helped reduce absenteeism and increase productivity among the workforce since an in-house health station helps save staff time. Further, corporations feel that the health stations provide complete wellness programs to the staff at minimal cost and greater efficiency.
CSI’s equipment has performed more than one billion, has been awarded four Patents for its innovative technology and systems (with 7 additional Patents pending), and has established a presence in over 5,000 corporate and retail locations, public health entities, and government facilities nationwide. Based on the company’s success in retaining its customers and customizing Health System Kiosks to their client’s requirements, Frost & Sullivan is proud to present CSI with the Customer Service Leadership Award in the U.S. blood pressure monitoring market.
