AT&T and Intuitive Health are working together to pilot a home-based remote patient monitoring solution that helps engage patients and family members in their own care, while seamlessly involving healthcare providers through integration with their clinical information systems. The goal is to help reduce hospital readmissions and healthcare costs, and increase quality of care and patient satisfaction.

AT&T provides wireless connectivity to send data from unobtrusive personal health devices including tablets, weight scales and pulse oximeters to a cloud-based, device-agnostic, software platform from Intuitive Health that engages patients in their homes and enables the data gathered to be shared with caregivers in a highly-secure manner.
