Continua Health Alliance, an organization working towards establishing industry standards for personal health devices, recently announced two new certifications for mobile health technologies. Vignet, Inc., a Continua member company, was certified by Continua for its iPhone Mobile Manager.
This is the first solution for Apple mobile devices that meets Continua standards for interoperability.
It is also the first solution to incorporate Continua’s WAN (wide area network) guidelines for mobile applications. Vignet demonstrated its Continua-certified solutions last week at Continua’s Spring Summit in Austin, TX.
The Vignet iPhone Mobile Manager is a Continua certified software manager that can be customized and adapted by various mobile applications and service providers. Implemented using Continua WAN guidelines, the Vignet Mobile Manager enables developers to build custom applications, and connects them with other certified personal health devices such as weight scales, blood pressure cuffs or pedometers.
It also facilitates integration with various interoperable servers to securely deliver personal connected health data and information.
