ActiveCare and Qualcomm Life Team Up on New Telehealth Endeavor

One of the more popular yet overlooked uses for the massive gains we’ve seen in the consumer technology market is how things have changed in health monitoring. One company after another is trying to find new ways to lead the industry.

ActiveCare, Inc. thinks it may have found a way, with its partnership with Qualcomm Life. Both companies are collaborating on better solutions in the area of chronic disease management through the use of telehealth technologies.

It stands to reason that monitoring and fighting against chronic diseases would be the next step in this kind of technology. Users are already able to monitor a whole host of different factors, including BMI and heart rate, as well as cholesterol levels and other statistics. 

Telehealth solutions work best when used to substitute the need to check in physically with a doctor or health worker, such as those solutions that are used by companies seniors take advantage of on a regular basis.

This partnership means that ActiveCare has completely managed to integrate a platform that includes patient monitoring and predictive programs with Qualcomm Life’s 2Net Solution. It is therefore easier than ever to view patient data in real time. 

This data can then be used to help ActiveCare employees as they work 24/7 to provide support and advice to program users who suffer from chronic diseases.

"Our collaboration with Qualcomm Life has made it possible for ActiveCare to deliver a unique solution. Telehealth has long hoped to be a means of providing a higher level of care more cost effectively. We realize that goal," Michael Jones, chief operations officer at ActiveCare, said in a recent statement. "Our solution will enable us to proactively assist individual plan members to better manage their treatment and reduce the cost of care."
