UC San Diego Health System is working with Qualcomm Life, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM), to pilot the 2net Platform and Hub for remote patient monitoring.
Qualcomm Life's 2net technology collects patients' clinical information from wireless medical devices and transmits it to UC San Diego Health System physicians, to supplement information already available.
UC San Diego Health System is one of the first health system locations to implement this pilot program. Patients who volunteer for the pilot program will be given specific kits comprised of medical devices such as a weight scale, a blood pressure cuff and a blood glucose meter. When, for example, the patient steps on the weight scale or takes a blood glucose reading, the data is collected via the 2net Hub, a plug-and-play gateway device, sent through Qualcomm's 2net Platform and into Entra Health System's MyHealthPoint solution to be accessed by the physician's office for review and follow up.
