Qualcomm’s healthcare ancillary, Qualcomm Life, announced that it is collaborating with Davita Healthcare Partners and P2Link to development healthcare management solutions for chronic illnesses. These solutions are slated to be powered by Qualcomm’s HealthyCircles Care Coordination Platform and 2net Device Connectivity Platform.
Designed to provide undisrupted care for critical illness’ patients, better management of at-risk populations, and informed interventions, the partnership is intended to expand an existing health monitoring program in Arizona.
P2Link is a prominent provider of health monitoring solutions which help providers to offer improved quality of healthcare services to patients at a much reduced costs. The services will be available to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure.
According to reports, the company is gearing up for the first patient enrollment, which is expected to start in the United States by the fourth quarter of 2015. The first deployment of 2net by P2Link will be with the Emerson Hospital located in Concord, Mass.
P2Link is aiming to reduce the overall cost incurred for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure patients at least by ten to fifteen per cent using its pay-for-performance services that capitalize on proprietary predictive models. The system also leverages from an in-house clinical call center. Hence, with the specially designed services P2Link is focused on helping providers as well as payers as they uninhibitedly transition to a value-based reimbursement system.
One of the leading managers of physician network operators and medical groups, Davita HealthCare Partners under the new model will provide integrated healthcare management to approximately 830,000 patients, among whom more than 600,000 patients live in California. The patients’ base represents a multitude of socioeconomic groups, cultures, health statuses, and ages.
The company is likely to integrate technologies such as HealthyCircles and 2net Mobile into a coordinated care platform for patients. This program will be rolled out by the fourth quarter of 2015.
