Honeywell HomMed – a provider of health management technologies and remote patient monitoring solutions has announced that it is changing its corporate name to Honeywell Life Care Solutions. The corporate name change reflects company’s broader healthcare commitment and its focus in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of health management through digital health technology solutions.
“The new name – Honeywell Life Care Solutions – allows us to emphasize our wide-ranging business objective around changing the way healthcare is delivered between healthcare providers and patients, with the goal of increasing access, lowering costs and improving quality. As a company with its roots in digital technology, we are committed to delivering breakthrough products and services that will help connect all the points in the care continuum,” said John Bojanowski, President of Honeywell Life Care Solutions in an official statement.
In conjunction with the name change, the company is introducing Seymour, a digital health technology solution which provides a platform for the way patient data is aggregated, stored and shared between healthcare providers and patients, with the goal of helping people better understand and manage their data – and ultimately their health. Seymour supports population health management goals through integration with consumer-entered health data, EMRs, EHRs, remote-monitoring devices, pharmacy records and even consumer devices and apps.
“We know nine out of ten consumers want to utilize technology to manage their health,” said Bojanowski. “To that end, we will continue to provide them with the tools they need to better navigate their own care programs within and outside the walls of the healthcare system.”
The new name is effective immediately, and will be implemented across the company’s product and services throughout the calendar year 2015.
