Collaboration tackles chronic care management

San Diego-based Qualcomm Life Inc. and New York-based AMC Health have announced a collaborative agreement to develop a connectivity platform that will improve care coordination for those living with chronic diseases. The initial focus will be on heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, asthma and COPD.

The collaboration will integrate Qualcomm Life's 2net connectivity platform with AMC Health's CareConsole care coordination platform.

Biometric data captured from medical devices through Qualcomm's 2net platform, hub and mobile solutions will be transmitted securely to AMC Health's CareConsole platform where they will be analyzed and made available to clinicians via a secure web portal.

"The AMC Health collaboration with Qualcomm Life places both companies at the forefront of the imminent transformation of health care delivery," said Nesim Bildirici, AMC Health’s founder and CEO, in a press release. "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."
