Qualcomm Life And WebMD Collaborate To Bring Integrated Digital Health Resources And Tools To Consumers









NEW ORLEANS and SAN DIEGO, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., is joining forces with WebMD, the leading source of health information, to bring in a new era of next generation health care and enable millions of health-conscious consumers to access and manage wireless health data from a wide array of fitness, wellness and medical devices. The announcement was made at the HIMSS 2013 conference being held at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"We are delighted to be working with WebMD, the leading multi-screen source of health information for consumers and physicians," said Rick Valencia, vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Life.  "Our industry leading 2net Platform will be integrated with various WebMD offerings to provide consumers and physicians with an industry-defining connected health experience."

Qualcomm Life and WebMD are making biometric data available, actionable and relevant to consumers so they can more proactively manage their health and fitness. This technology collaboration will  establish an open ecosystem of digital health apps and third-party devices across various disease categories and lifestyle interests where consumers and physicians can select solutions that suit their preferences and healthcare needs.  



Qualcomm Life Launches 2net Ecosystem Initiatives

In addition to the WebMD collaboration, Qualcomm Life is further enabling innovation and customization of mobile health applications and services by announcing limited availability of the Beta version of the 2net Hub Application Programming Interface (API) and Software Development Kit (SDK), as well as ensuring a robust connectivity experience across the 2net Ecosystem with the launch of its Technology Certification Program.

The 2net Hub API and SDK Beta, available by the end of March, will enable existing and new 2net Ecosystem partners  to develop custom health care device connectivity  for inclusion in the 2net Hub device library.
