Qualcomm Life, Inc. and AMC Health recently announced a partnership to help accelerate improvements in the way population health management is carried out through enhancing connectivity and coordination of at-risk patients with diseases like COPD, asthma, heart failure, diabetes and hypertension using a cost-effective approach. The companies will utilize Qualcomm Life’s 2net™ Connectivity Platform together with AMC Health’s CareConsole™ care coordination platform.
The 2net Hub, 2net Platform and 2net Mobile are innovative solutions for enabling seamless recording, transmission and collection of biometric data for a wide range of FDA-listed medical devices, almost in real time. 2net allows increased interoperability plus flexibility to record device data for all types of patients while they are at home or on the go. It also securely transmits data to AMC Health’s CareConsole platform. In turn, the CareConsole platform includes an advanced analytics system to collect, verify and analyze data that also presents clinically actionable and daily patient information in an extremely user-friendly format so clinicians can easily use it. Additionally, the CareConsole also warns clinicians about emerging health issues, and enables real-time education, focus and attention to assure care to patients.
“The AMC Health collaboration with Qualcomm Life places both companies at the forefront of the imminent transformation of health care delivery. We have proven that clinical decisions, aided by continuously updated ‘real-time’ patient-information, generate better health outcomes and reduce health care costs. Combining AMC Health’s 12 years of ‘real-time’ patient management experience with Qualcomm Life’s industry-leading connectivity expertise aims to bring improved health outcomes and care management efficiencies to benefit many more patients,” said the AMC Health’s CEO and founder, Nesim Bildirici.
“The home is becoming the fastest growing health care setting in the United States6 and the combined capabilities of AMC Health and Qualcomm Life are powerful in managing patients with complex care needs beyond the walls of the hospital and into the home. We are excited to be collaborating with AMC Health to expand the reach of this high tech, high touch model to all at-risk patients,” concluded Rick Valencia, Qualcomm Life, Inc representative.
Technology such as 2net is particularly useful for patients with COPD or asthma, who often need to contend with exacerbations that can be serious enough to require hospitalization. Through near-real-time data management, such events might be avoidable, helping to increase patients’ quality of life and productivity while cutting down on healthcare costs.
