Cochrane, Alberta (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
ANT Wireless ("ANT" http://www.thisisant.com), a division of Dynastream Innovations Inc. and Vignet Corporation, a leader in providing personal connected health solutions, today announced a partnership to launch interoperable, cross-platform solutions for the ANT+ ecosystem. ANT+ enabled biometric sensors using the interoperable Continua Health Alliance WAN guidelines will be demonstrated this week at the 2010 ANT+ Alliance Symposium, September 27–30.
Vignet’s connected health solutions now enable ANT+ member companies to rapidly innovate by seamlessly linking sensor/device data to cloud based services - contributing to the growing need for active lifestyles and self-care management. Creating cost-effective convenience for consumers and caregivers, Vignet’s proven, pre-built personal health solutions enable sensors/devices to talk to commonly owned communication hubs such as smart phones, computers, tablets, televisions and internet portals.
“Vignet is providing a very key building block that will allow ANT+ to easily bridge fitness sensors into the wellness and medical arenas,” states Rod Morris, Director, ANT Wireless. “Essentially, ANT+ members can now use both existing and new sensors to enable complete Continua interoperable solutions. As an example, the same heart rate monitor used for fitness gains a whole new avenue of application in a structured health environment. ”
Praduman Jain (PJ), Vignet CEO adds: “Providing an opportunity for people to use their everyday mobile phones and computers to manage and improve their health is a key step in advancing anytime, anywhere healthcare and promoting wellness and prevention. We are pleased to work with ANT+ to provide an integrated solution which incorporates secure interoperable standards. This will enable personal health solutions across communication platforms, further creating new value for ANT+ members.”
Secure, user-friendly and scalable, the Vignet solutions enable new revenue streams for the ANT+ ecosystem including medical/biometric device manufacturers, payers, providers and home health and care management companies. Today, Vignet’s solutions are significantly reducing the cost of healthcare delivery, accelerating the deployment of new applications and improving operational efficiencies.
