WASHINGTON and SAN DIEGO, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., is collaborating with new technology partners and customers who are leveraging the 2net Platform and Hub to enable wireless connectivity of medical devices and applications so that biometric information is easily accessible to device users, their healthcare providers and caregivers. The Company also announced that its 2net Platform and Hub, which are already available in the U.S. and Europe, are also now available in Canada. The announcement was made at the 2012 mHealth Summit being held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C., December 3-5.

"Qualcomm Life has expanded its footprint dramatically over the past year, and we now offer our customers and partners one-stop shopping for wireless enablement of their healthcare solutions across the greater part of two continents," said Rick Valencia, vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Life. "We are committed to providing solutions for our customers' wireless health challenges, and will continue to expand our services into other countries, prioritizing based on our customers' needs and business opportunities we identify."

"By leveraging Ingram Micro's global scale and the investments we've made to optimize and specialize our business around mobile, including the recent acquisition of BrightPoint, Qualcomm Life will be well positioned to build greater business efficiencies that can help accelerate demand for its 2net Platform and Hub and help drive down go-to-market costs." 

HealthyCircles, an enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution delivering integrated care coordination and management, will leverage the 2net Platform to enable patients and providers the ability to easily collect and monitor vital health information with actionable data that is readily accessible and shareable with a patient's care team.

"This strategic collaboration with Qualcomm Life will enhance the HealthyCircles offering with a comprehensive portfolio of wireless devices and seamless transmission of biometric data to enable proactive care management and care team coordination," stated James Mault, M.D. FACS, HealthyCircles' Founder and Chief Strategy Officer.

VRI and TCMC will leverage the 2net Hub to help further reduce hospital readmissions and advance patient care by delivering the 2net Hub to TCMC patients within 48 hours of discharge. ActiveCare, a leading provider of remote health solutions to employers and their health plans, is leveraging the 2net Platform and Hub to quickly capture and analyze patient data.

Also, the 2net Platform will help enable MD Revolution's SaaS solution, RevUp, a scalable wellness solution for corporations and physician practices that aggregates genetic and health data with mobile device data, automates the diagnostic process and provides an individual with a personalized treatment and wellness plan.
