Barton Health First To Offer New Digital Medicine Developed By Proteus Digital Health

In a first, Nevada’s Barton Health System based in Lake Tahoe will implement a unique digital medicine for treating hypertension, one of the most common chronic medical conditions in the U.S.

Referred to as Proteus Discover, the new digital medicine will incorporate an ingestible sensor–activated upon contact with stomach acid–which communicates important information related to a patient’s vital signs and time the medication was taken.

Proteus Discover, which utilizes FDA-approved technology incorporating ingestible digital sensors developed by Proteus Digital Health, represents the first commercial use of such technology after the recent success of initial clinical trials evaluating efficacy and reproducibility of the innovative monitoring technology.
