FDA Clears Verizon's Remote Health Monitoring

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted clearance for Verizon's Converged Health Management, a remote patient-monitoring medical device that provides clinicians with access to up-to-date patient data from connected biometric devices so they can more efficiently monitor and manage patients from their home, or when they are on the go.

Verizon said its new solution is powered by the company's HIPAA-ready cloud.

"Verizon is committed to improving the dynamics of the U.S. healthcare system," said Dr. Peter Tippett, chief medical officer and vice president, Verizon Innovation Incubator.  "By leveraging our mobile health expertise, HIPAA-ready cloud, 4G LTE wireless network and leading security solutions, Verizon is uniquely positioned to drive innovation in healthcare. Converged Health Management will accelerate focus on care management through mobile technologies as patients increasingly take more responsibility for their health.

Verizon's Converged Health Management solution will be commercially available in late 2013.
