Canadian m-health specialist Ideal Life is collaborating with Orange Business Services on the rollout of its remote monitoring services in Europe and Latin America.
By providing remote care to homes, the services are intended to prevent non-critical readmissions of patients to hospitals.
Ideal Life (Toronto, Canada) is to begin offering new medical hubs, equipped with Orange (Paris, France) SIM cards, that are stored in the home and collect data from a variety of health-related devices, including blood pressure monitors and glucose, oxygen saturation and heart rate meters.
The data can then sent to physicians in real time over Orange’s networks, and accessed using smartphones, tablets and computers.
Ideal Life says the application can also format data into a standardized electronic medical record (EMR) to improve compliance with new legislation that requires this.
“Orange Business Services provides us with the perfect platform to deliver our remote health-monitoring services to a greater number of caregivers and insurance providers from around the world,” said Harvey Goldberg, the chief executive of Ideal Life. “For healthcare enterprises in these regions, our expanded services will lead to better regulatory compliance, improve their migration to EMRs and reduce costs.”
The tie-up was announced at this week’s mHealth Summit in Washington, DC.
