Marking yet another highly promising partnership touted at CES 2015, Qualcomm Incorporated confirmed to MMW this week that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., is now collaborating with Walgreens to power device connectivity with Walgreens mobile and web applications.
In particular, we’re told that Qualcomm Life will work with Walgreens on the pharmacy chain’s Balance Rewards for healthy choices program.
“Within the apps, Qualcomm Life’s 2net Platform will also enable remote patient monitoring, transitional care support and chronic care management through a secure and seamless transmission of biometric data from patients’ connected medical devices,” a provided statement from Qualcomm reads.
The Walgreens applications and Qualcomm-enabled branded devices will be available to consumers in the first half of 2015.
“Whether transitioning from a hospital to the home or managing a chronic condition such as heart disease or diabetes, Walgreens connectivity solution powered by Qualcomm Life will allow us to help our customers achieve improved health through regular biometric communication with their providers,” said Adam Pellegrini, Walgreens divisional vice president of digital health. “Additionally, Qualcomm Life’s platforms help us to reward participating customers for their choice to become more informed and engaged in their health care.”
