Royal Philips has entered into a technology collaboration with Qualcomm Life to advance personalized connected health care.
The companies share each other’s capabilities, including Philips expertise in connected health informatics and regulated health care cloud data management and analytics, and Qualcomm Life’s expertise in medical-grade device connectivity and integration.
Qualcomm Life’s 2net Platform will serve as medical device connectivity solution for Philips HealthSuite, a cloud-enabled health ecosystem of devices, apps and digital tools.
With the support of Qualcomm Life 2net Ecosystem, Philips HealthSuite users can access a range of connected medical devices such as medication dispensers, medical grade biosensors, ventilators, blood pressure monitors, point of care self-tests, and blood glucose meters.
The 2net Platform, 2net Hub and 2net Mobile platforms allow secure connectivity, data capture and transmission to enable HealthSuite users to customize and scale connected care programs, add additional medical devices and gain a fuller patient profile over longer periods of time.
Philips HealthSuite will also serve as a global, secure, data management and storage solution for Qualcomm Life’s medical-grade 2net Platform, providing health data through data normalization, aggregation and analytics.
Qualcomm Life customers will be provided with direct access to develop applications, integrate with electronic health record systems, store normalized data, run analytics, and manage authorization and consents in a secure environment.
Philips connected care and health informatics CEO Jeroen Tas said: “As the home is fast becoming a viable care setting, care providers, home health agencies, and other institutions are increasingly using connected care to reduce emergency care, readmissions of patients with chronic diseases.”
Qualcomm Life president Rick Valecia said: “An undeniable leader in the health care technology industry, Philips brings a deep technology expertise to their health care initiatives, and by joining forces we aim to deliver intelligent care to patients and providers at scale.”
