Ideal Life Chooses Orange Business Services To Add Global Dimension To Remote Health Management

At the 2012 mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C., Toronto-based remote health provider Ideal Life announced that it has chosen Orange Business Services to expand its remote monitoring solutions for wellness and chronic conditions to an international audience. Orange will provide seamless machine to machine (M2M) wireless connectivity for Ideal Life in Europe and Latin America, promoting comprehensive remote care to the home and preventing non-critical re-admissions of patients to hospitals.

“As an established and comprehensive provider of global M2M solutions, Orange Business Services provides us with the perfect platform to deliver our remote health monitoring services to a greater number of caregivers and insurance providers from around the world,” said Harvey Goldberg, CEO of Ideal Life. “For healthcare enterprises in these regions, our expanded services will lead to better regulatory compliance, improve their migration to electronic medical records (EMR) and reduce costs. For patients, we can offer a better quality of life with comprehensive and reliable care to more homes, thereby reducing hospital stays and providing around the clock, non-obtrusive preventive care.”

Ideal Life will be offering new medical hubs containing Orange SIM cards. These hubs will reside in the home, collecting data from a variety of health-related devices, from blood pressure monitors to glucose, oxygen saturation and heart rate meters. Once collected, this information is transmitted in real time over the Orange network to physicians who can access it using a variety of devices such as tablets, smartphones and traditional PCs. The application can also format the data into a standardized EMR, improving compliance with recent legislation requiring such records.

“Technology is the gateway for transforming healthcare and improving quality of life,” said Thierry Zylberberg, executive vice president, Orange Healthcare, a division dedicated to developing e-health solutions. “Combining our expertise in e-health with our global M2M solutions, Orange is well placed to deliver advanced m-Health services to our customers like Ideal Life, and in turn to their patients, health professionals, caregivers and insurance carriers, with the goal in part to offer patients and their families peace of mind.”
