FCC May Relocate Telemetry Service
Ensure medical telemetry systems are registered With ASHE

The Federal Communications Commission is considering moving Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) to a different, more suitable wireless band spectrum. Medical telemetry systems are required by law to be registered with the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE). If telemetry relocation occurs, registered systems are expected to receive some compensation. Systems that are not identified in the ASHE database of WMTS licensees may not be eligible to receive compensation. Registration is quick and easy.
