Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., launched the HealthyCircles™ Mobile application, a secure, medical-grade mobile care solution that provides a frictionless on-the-go care experience for consumers via their mobile device. The application is an extension of Qualcomm Life’s web-based HealthyCircles Care Coordination Platform, offering personalized care, patient activation and behavior modification for chronic care patients.
HealthyCircles Mobile is an enterprise private-label chronic care management application designed to operate on the iOS and Android operating systems. The mobile solution enables convenient access to vital health information and secure communications for care team coordination. As health care moves home and the industry transitions away from episodic care, patients and health care professionals are engaging in a continuous care model for medication management, appointment reminders, interactive health programs and biometric data monitoring. The application is built on Qualcomm Life’s 2net™ Mobile core, an FDA-listed Class I MDDS secure gateway that seamlessly captures biometric data from a wide array of medical devices, allowing patients to visualize their own biometric data in color coded trackers. Now, with HealthyCircles Mobile, patients have access to these personalized care features in the palm of their hands and can take a more active role to adhere and engage in their health.
“HealthyCircles Mobile is an adaptive, personalized mobile care experience for patients who need it the most: people with chronic conditions and those transitioning from hospital to the home,” said James Mault, MD F.A.C.S., vice president and chief medical officer, Qualcomm Life, Inc. “Our goal is to provide a frictionless platform that will guide healthy behaviors and motivate patients to engage in their own self-care.”
“As care is moving from the hospital to the home, it’s crucial that patients have an easy way to track their health and communicate with a care team,” said Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Life. “With Qualcomm’s 30 years of experience in mobile and a proven track record of transforming other verticals with wireless technology, we are uniquely positioned to deliver a scalable, secure, medical-grade mobile health solution.”
