Qualcomm Life, a subsidiary of Qualcomm, and Tunstall Healthcare, one of the leading providers of technology-enabled care services, announced its collaboration to facilitate the cost effective global deployment of Tunstall’s care provisions leveraging Qualcomm Life’s 2net Platform. The 2net Platform is a cloud-based, device-agnostic and interoperable system that enables end-to-end connectivity with an expansive variety of medical devices and applications, allowing users and their clinicians or caregivers to easily access biometric data.
A Qualcomm subsidiary’s health communications platform will replace proprietary gear used by a company that provides remote care for 3.6 million people. Tunstall Healthcare is the first company to pick Qualcomm Life’s 2net system over a set of products already in use, according to Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager of the wholly owned Qualcomm subsidiary. About 350 other companies have designed new gear that works with 2net. 2net can connect a wide range of health devices to care providers through a cloud-based service. It’s built around a hardware hub and a service provided by Qualcomm Life, and it’s intended to foster an ecosystem of new gear from many vendors, said Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Life.
