Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland, Phoenix (AZ), USA and Lucerne, Switzerland, March 5, 2019 – The Kudelski Group (SIX: KUD.S), the world leader in digital security, and Medisanté, the global leader in medical IoT, today announced a worldwide collaboration agreement that brings enterprise-grade security to Remote Patient Monitoring. This enables a new connected care model – alongside in-person care – for healthcare providers.
According to the World Health Organization, the number of people with a chronic disease such as diabetes has more than quadrupled over the past 40 years. This has resulted in an increasingly large group of patients who require regular care from their providers in order to remain healthy. Frequent trips to the doctor to monitor patient health are costly for both patients and insurance companies. By using cellular-connected medical devices at home, elderly patients have the peace of mind of being monitored by their healthcare provider while benefitting from “zero-touch configuration” setup, thereby increasing patient compliance and positive medical outcomes.
Jean-Michel Puiatti, Kudelski Group Senior Vice President for IoT Security: “The Internet of Things is beginning to touch every part of our world, but medical IoT will have the biggest impact on our quality of life. By working with Medisanté to protect medical devices, we are guaranteeing authenticity and privacy of Patient-Generated Health Data.”
Peter Heiniger, Medisanté CEO: “With Medisanté and Kudelski, leading clinical software vendors and healthcare providers have an exciting new option to cost-effectively scale Remote Patient Monitoring while benefitting from the latest advances in IoT security. By combining ease of use with proven device and data protection, we are giving chronically ill patients and their caregivers a lifeline that connects them and improves their lives.”
