Omron launches remote medical system in US for hypertension

App will follow as company looks to market telemed systems overseas

Omron aims to gain 100,000 users in five years. 

KYOTO -- Omron will enter the remote medicine business in the U.S. for patients with hypertension, or high blood pressure, in partnership with hospitals in August.

The Japanese company will first launch the business, called VitalSight, in the U.S., where online medical practice is more accepted than in Japan. Omron will send blood pressure manometers and communication equipment to patients, whose data will be automatically added to a hospital's digital medical records.
