Users of AT&T’s portfolio of mobile health (mHealth), cloud-based, and telehealth products-ForHealth-now will have the ability to automatically transmit readings from retail health monitors to electronic health records and review and manage collected data remotely from any location with Internet connectivity now that the portfolio includes two products from MedApps (HealthPAL and Health COM, respectively).

The ForHealth line of products is intended to streamline healthcare data flow and care delivery and contribute to improved disease management, particularly for those with chronic conditions. MedApps focuses on cloud computing and has an open platform architecture, allowing connection of multiple clinical devices to a single “plug-and-play” hub, says Randall Porter, assistant vice president, AT&T ForHealth Solutions. “It will help AT&T offer mHealth solutions that are user-agnostic and universally accessible, despite carrier, device type, and operating system,” he adds.

AT&T will provide 3G connectivity to the MedApps suite and also will be co-selling MedApps’ remote care monitoring hub and enterprise back-end solutions, bundling MedApps with existing AT&T remote care applications, clinical peripherals, and devices.
