VerizonLogo1 EbizVerizon has rolled out a new remote monitoring platform designed to help patients access their personal health information such as vital signs at home using mobile devices.

Converged Health Management works to collect, store and transmit biometric data to Verizon’s cloud-based server and help patients receive medical advice via a smartphone application or an online portal, Verizon said Thursday.

John Stratton, Verizon Enterprise Solutions president, said the company wants to leverage its 4G LTE system and cloud computing infrastructure for the new technology.

Peter Tippett, Verizon chief medical officer and vice president of its innovation incubator group, said the company aims to help transform U.S. healthcare and increase patient engagement.

Doctors and patients can use CHM as a standalone tool or with other devices that check glucose levels, weight, blood pressure and oxygen saturation, Verizon says.
