The movement toward digital health monitoring marches on. Durham-based Validic, which makes a digital health platform, is teaming with Cerner Corp.(Nasdaq:CERN) to enable its access and connectivity to patient data generated from clinical and fitness devices and applications, it said Thursday.
Using Validic’s digital health platform, Cerner will be able to integrate clinical, fitness, wellness and nutritional data into a patient’s personal health portal, HealthLife. With the patient’s consent, the data is sent to their electronic medical record, giving health care providers access to the data on a daily basis.
Cerner’s technologies connect people and systems around the world both in and outside of provider settings, said Ryan Beckland, CEO and co-founder of Validic, “Bridging the gap between healthcare stakeholders and the clinical devices, fitness wearables, and patient applications they need to provide actionable insights.”
Cerner’s health information technologies connect people and information at 18,000 facilities worldwide. The company acquired the Siemens Health Care business from Siemen’s AG in February.
