The GEMweb Plus interface allows health care professionals access to vital patient information from any location, using any networked PC or GEM® Premier™ 4000 Critical Care analyzer. It offers total connectivity whether the user is in the ICU, a satellite facility or at home. Now, IL has an interactive demonstration that can be used to crisply articulate the clear value of GEMweb Plus in any selling situation. 

"With this unique visual storytelling solution, we are now able to better communicate the features and benefits of GEMweb Plus, while providing our team with an interactive tool that is innovative and easy to use," said Sally McCraven, Worldwide Marketing Communications at Instrumentation Laboratory.
