Qualcomm announces new connected health collaborations at Connect 2014

-- ResMed, King's Daughters Medical Center and CareCentrix join the Qualcomm Life Ecosystem to accelerate transitional care and complex care management solutions --

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., is collaborating with ResMed (NYSE: RMD), King's Daughters Medical Center and CareCentrix to develop next-generation connected health solutions powered by Qualcomm Life's transformational 2netand HealthyCirclesplatforms, enabling continuous care, informed interventions and better management of at-risk populations. The announcement was part of Qualcomm Life's annual Connect 2014 conference taking place on August 11-12, 2014 in San Diego, California.

By integrating with Qualcomm Life's scalable solutions, these companies now have access to one of the world's largest open and interoperable mHealth ecosystems of medical device, applications and service companies in the health care industry. By liberating vital health and biometric data, Qualcomm Life is assisting these companies with the clinical context and exception-based management tools to efficiently enable care team coordination for transitional care and chronic care management.

"This is a very exciting time in the connected health space and we are pleased to have these innovative companies join in our mission to mobilize health care to increase access to care and improve patient outcomes," said Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Life. "With more than 400 companies in the Qualcomm Life Ecosystem, we are uniquely positioned to reinvent health care by shifting connected health solutions from a novel technology to a standard of care."

ResMed, a leader in innovative medical equipment for sleep-disordered breathing and other respiratory disorders, is using Qualcomm Life's technology to streamline transitions of care from the hospital and into the home. Of note, ResMed is integrating the 2net Hub and Platform with its Astral100 and Astral 150 life support ventilators to seamlessly capture and transfer near real-time biometric data to the HealthyCircles care coordination platform, which allows care teams to effectively monitor and manage patients by exception. Additionally, ResMed is using HealthyCircles in combination with its continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device to enable hospitals and care providers to closely monitor patients to prevent hospital readmissions.

"Working with Qualcomm Life extends our data solutions into the next-generation of remote patient monitoring solutions," said Jeremy Malecha, senior director, Product Management, ResMed-Americas. "The 2net and HealthyCircles Platforms infrastructure streamlines data collection and transmission, enabling continuous, quality respiratory care for patients beyond the hospital."

King's Daughters Medical Center (KDMC), located in Ashland, Ky., is collaborating with Qualcomm Life to deploy and scale its health services to manage employers' high-risk patient populations with complex care needs in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. Focused on patients with heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, KDMC's integrated care coordination and management services will increase touch points in the rural community and link community-based providers through the 2net and HealthyCircles Platforms.

"Qualcomm Life's strong leadership in the connected health space makes them the ideal collaborator for our preventative, transitional and complex care services," said Matt Ebaugh, Chief Strategy Officer at KDMC. "The 2net and HealthyCircles Platforms will allow us to develop reliable and cost-effective complex care coordination and management solutions to closely monitor and care for our high-risk patients in rural communities."

For nearly twenty years CareCentrix has helped health plans and providers lower costs and improve health outcomes for patients. John Driscoll, CareCentrix CEO and a keynote speaker at Connect 2014 noted, "We are passionately committed to creating a world where anyone can age and heal in the comfort of their home. Collaborating with Qualcomm Life will help us build on our long track record of driving value for health plans and providers in the post- acute arena. Qualcomm Life's unique and scalable solutions represent an improvement in delivering innovative care solutions to the home."

Sponsored by GlobalLogic and WebMD, the third annual Connect 2014 is expected to draw more than 300 leaders from across the connected health industry to discuss best practices and innovative solutions that will accelerate adoption and establish evidence surrounding connected health technology to define a successful mHealth roadmap. David Ziegler, Director of Mobile Product Management at WebMD, will be speaking about the company's efforts to make health information actionable. Ziegler will provide an overview of Healthy Target, a behavior change program within its flagship mobile app, which leverages Qualcomm Life's 2net Platform to aggregate biometric data with its rich set of content and tools to empower consumers to better manage their health. Additional notable speakers will include Bakul Patel, Senior Policy Advisor at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); Adam Pellegrini, VP of Digital Health at Walgreens; Dr. Sachin Jain, Chief Medical Information and Innovation Officer at Merck; and Dr. Leslie Saxon, Executive Director of the USC Center for Body Computing.
