Partners HealthCare is partnering with Samsung Electronics to develop the next generation of personalized digital and mobile solutions for health and wellness. The first phase of this partnership will include software development and clinical research to deliver tools to improve chronic disease management.
Remote monitoring programs help patients and providers effectively manage chronic conditions, enabling patients to track their health, securely share personal health data with their provider and become collaborative partners in their care.
Remote monitoring data, including blood pressure, blood glucose and weight, gives healthcare providers a more complete picture of a patient’s condition in order to effectively assess their health status and provide just-in-time care. Mobile health tools also help to improve patient engagement, medication adherence and empower individuals to better self-manage their health and wellness.
Dr. Jethwani, MPH, Senior Director, Connected Health Innovation will lead this research initiative at Partners HealthCare. Samsung’s Digital Media and Communications R&D Center (DMC R&D), will oversee this program for the company.
