Mar 08, 2012 Qualcomm Life and 2net Platform
When mentioning the West Wireless Health Institute, I also should have mentioned Qualcomm Life, their 2net wireless platform, and the $100 million dollars they are giving to accelerate new companies. They also look like they are going to be a major player and force in wireless health, and they have a head-start in that they already know how to do wireless.
They describe the 2net Platform as “a cloud-based system designed to be universally-interoperable with different medical devices and applications, enabling end-to-end wireless connectivity while allowing medical device users and their physicians or caregivers to easily access biometric data.” This should make it much easier for many start-ups who have a good idea but don’t know how to do wireless. I’m excited to see how this plays out.
