Welch Allyn was once a privately-held, family-owned manufacturer of Holter Monitoring devices and solutions used by caregivers in doctors’ offices, hospitals, and emergency response settings around the world. However, Welch Allyn is now under the Baxter – Hillrom umbrella and powered by long time Holter monitoring company Mortara Instruments.
Welch Allyn has always strives to make products that help people improve lives and make it easier efficient for medical professionals to assess and diagnose their patients. Welch Allyn does that by applying innovative Holter Monitoring technologies that help front-line practitioners work more effectively, efficiently with their patients at the point of care.
Welch Allyn suite of Holter Systems feature easy-to-use software and recorders that can improve patient compliance due to their lightweight, compact profile. Using Welch Allyn Office Holter software or Welch Allyn Expert Holter software, the systems can be configured with a compact digital recorder featuring 2- or 3-channel recording for a detailed evaluation. Either system provides you with fast, accurate data that helps to streamline your workflow and make your practice more efficient and EHR compatible.
