Qualcomm Life and Roche have entered into a strategic collaboration aimed at improving remote monitoring and the management of chronic diseases via a secure and wireless platform. 

The collaboration will allow Roche to use Qualcomm Life's 2net platform to capture data from point-of-care medical devices and monitoring systems, then send that data directly to Roche's cloud-based back-end services, where they can be accessed by members of the care team.

"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 Jeremy Moss, senior vice president, Point of Care at Roche Professional Diagnostics, in a press release. "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."
