Tunstall joins the large network of organisations that are leveraging the functionality of the open-standard 2net Platform as a Qualcomm Life Ecosystem member. As a member, Tunstall is able to meet its customers increasing expectations and deliver high-quality care and support worldwide. Through its collaboration with Qualcomm Life, Tunstall will add the 2net Hub and mobile applications to its product portfolio, in addition to integrating 2net into Tunstall existing telehealth systems.

Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Life said, "We value the opportunity to work with Tunstall, because they bring a world-renowned reputation, industry experience and proven results in scalability, which supports our mission to broaden the scope of telehealthcare. As health care monitoring shifts from acute-care settings to less-costly settings, like the patient's home, our 2net Platform is bridging the technology gap. 2net is one of the only services on the market that combines a well-established, agnostic ecosystem of service providers and manufacturers, with a business model that supports scalability."

Steve Sadler, CTO, Tunstall commented, "Our collaboration with Qualcomm Life marks an important step in the development of our Bespoke care services, as we move towards an increasingly open-standard model of care provision. By joining the Qualcomm Life Ecosystem and integrating with the 2net Platform, we're able to provide our customers with access to a single source of information. We look forward to working closely with Qualcomm Life to extend our services further and identify opportunities for the ongoing integration of health and social care."
