Roche collaborates with Qualcomm

Roche has forged an alliance with Qualcomm to develop remote patient-monitoring system


The companies aim to advance chronic care management using connected therapy

Qualcomm's subsidiary, Qualcomm Life and Roche has announced that they have entered into a strategic collaboration to improve remote monitoring and management of chronic disease patients. The companies aim to advance chronic care management using connected therapy to further improve therapy quality, increase convenience and drive patient engagement in managing their health.

Roche will utilize Qualcomm Life's 2net Platform to seamlessly and securely capture data from a patient's medical devices, beginning with anticoagulation meters, and transmit it to Roche's cloud-based back-end services. The 2net Platform is a secure wireless solution that provides a simple and efficient way to exchange relevant health information between chronic disease patients and their care team or clinic to enable reduced therapy complications and total cost of care.

Qualcomm Life and Roche are working together to deliver an improved process for sharing health information between health care providers and their patients.

"This collaboration marks a significant milestone for Roche as we launch a new generation of point-of-care solutions that enable healthcare professionals to better keep in touch remotely with patients, whenever and wherever they are," said Mr Jeremy Moss, senior vice president, Point of Care at Roche Professional Diagnostics. He added, "By combining Qualcomm Life's leadership in powering connected health solutions with our point-of-care expertise, we are taking an important step forward to realize our connected care strategy; ultimately enabling physicians to improve the overall quality of life for patients."

"We are thrilled to be working with a global industry leader in diagnostics and excited by the positive impact our collaboration with Roche can have on patient empowerment at the point-of-care. Together, Roche and Qualcomm Life are committed to providing tools to patients and their physicians and caregivers that empower greater coordination to improve patient health," said Mr Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Life.
