Sprint and Ideal Life have entered into a partnership to develop, certify and co-market a version of the Ideal Life hub to transmit health data over the Nationwide Sprint Network.
The transmitted data can include the patient’s glucose, blood pressure, weight, heart rate and oxygen level.
Ideal Life products are FDA approved for over-the-counter sales and HIPAA compliant for patient confidentiality.
The partnership aims to expand Ideal Life’s product portfolio to include embedded wireless devices.
The agreement between Sprint and Ideal Life means that the entire system will work wirelessly utilizing Sprint’s machine-to-machine (M2M) platform and the Nationwide Sprint Network to transmit medical data to health care providers to support diagnosis and general monitoring.
Ideal Life manufactures in-home health monitoring equipment for individuals with chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, asthma and obesity.
