Verizon Wireless’ Digital Healthcare Suite Advances Mobile Care Management, Virtual Care and Clinician Workflow

Verizon Wireless is developing a new digital care
management solution focused on chronic care management for healthcare.

The new solution will leverage a cloud-based platform and
connected medical devices from partners such as Entra Health. The market
differentiator for Verizon Wireless’ solution will be the ability to integrate
biometric devices from best-of-breed providers and deliver personalized care
plans to people on their mobile devices.

“Verizon Wireless is committed to the
healthcare vertical, and we feel that medical practitioners need the best
network to accomplish their goals and run efficient practices,” said
Michael Tighe, executive director, mHealth solutions, Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless’ virtual care solution will leverage
advances in 4G LTE technology by utilizing smartphones, tablets and advanced
video technology to provide a tool that virtualizes a healthcare visit,
eliminating the need to physically visit a doctor’s office for many routine

“Our depth of knowledge stems from team members who
have strong backgrounds in the healthcare industry. We have engaged in
conversations with healthcare professionals of all levels and worked together
from the ground up to deliver the right solutions from a technology
standpoint,” Tighe added.

Verizon Wireless’ mobile clinician solution leverages
high-speed mobile networks, smartphones and tablets, combined with partner
solutions from providers, such as IQ-Max, Calgary Scientific and Zipnosis, to
give clinicians the tools they need to be more productive and to provide care
more efficiently.

Earlier, Verizon teamed up
with Medco Health Solutions help patients access their prescription drug history
from any location and identify alternatives to costly prescription drugs.
Verizon made Medco Pharmacy mobile app available on its Android handsets.

Verizon Wireless is currently showcasing its Digital
Healthcare Solutions suite at the 2011 mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C. And,
John Stratton, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Verizon
Wireless, will provide a keynote address on Verizon Wireless’ approach to
mHealth on December 6.
