AT&T to Connect WellNest Mobile Health and Wellness Wearable

Healthcare Wearable Helps Connect Family Members & Enables Connected Care

AT&T* will provide connectivity for the WellNestTM wearable from Elements of Genius (EoG) which will let you seamlessly manage and communicate daily medical information with families, caregivers and providers. The EoG team is working to bring the unique wearable to market later this year over the highly secure AT&T network.

As the population increases in age and the family unit is geographically separated, the WellNestTM wearable will provide an opportunity to use technology in a way that creates meaningful connections between those taking care of loved ones. The WellNest platform and wearable will enable features such as medication adherence management and advanced location-based services. All of these features will be supported by a product and a personalized ecosystem of social care.

“AT&T’s connectivity services allow connected health solutions, such as the WellNest wearable, to give caregivers, patients and their loved ones the opportunity to change the conversations we have in between visits and build a better-rounded picture of patient health,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Internet of Things, AT&T.

“With AT&T’s connectivity services, we’ll help provide true and meaningful connections between family members, their parents and those in their ‘circle of care,’” said Jonathan Ramaci, CEO, Elements of Genius. "As the population increases in age and the family unit is geographically separated, we find an incredible opportunity to use technology in a way that creates connections, reiterates the importance of care and helps us stay connected to our loved ones. People want to ensure that their loved one’s golden years are truly connected years."

AT&T Foundry For Connected Health To Open At Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute

Foundry Will Focus on Healthcare Innovations Connecting Caregivers to Patients  

 

Dedicated to technology solutions that can help improve quality of life, the AT&T Foundry for Connected Health will open in February 2016 at the Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute in Houston. The new AT&T Foundry will focus on digital health innovations that benefit those in and out of the clinical care environment – helping caregivers and patients bridge the gap between a clinical setting and the home. 

The newest branch of the AT&T’s Foundry for the Internet of Things (IoT) in Plano will combine a focus on healthcare, with the same goals and objectives as AT&T’s other world-class innovation facilities; take great ideas and bring them to life faster than ever before.

AT&T Foundry for Connected Health will reside on Texas Medical Center’s campus, the largest medical center in the world. Along with fostering new and innovative companies in the space, the AT&T Foundry will be a resource for Texas Medical Center’s physicians and innovators looking to create integrated and connected healthcare solutions. TMC’s Innovation Institute houses several medical innovation programs including the TMCx accelerator, a fellowship program, as well as a workspace for health startups and innovation incubators.

“The goal of the AT&T Foundry is to bring ideas from concept to commercialization faster than previously possible, and nowhere is that mission more important than in healthcare,” said Igal Elbaz, Vice President of Ecosystem & Innovation at AT&T. “Our network capabilities and expertise in the Internet of Things make the AT&T Foundry the ideal place to accelerate innovation in healthcare.”

AT&T’s Foundry has brought healthcare collaborators into our innovation centers before, resulting in solutions such as Permobil’s Connected Wheelchair proof of concept and AT&T Remote Patient Monitoring, a cloud-based service that allows caregivers to monitor patients’ health after they’ve been discharged from the hospital.

“This is the year that people see how the Internet of Things (IoT) can solve real health issues,” said Chris Penrose, Senior Vice President, Internet of Things (IoT), AT&T Mobility. “It’s one thing to have the data to address today’s healthcare challenges. It’s another to put that data to action. We believe AT&T’s Connected Health solutions have the ability to dramatically change how people take care of themselves and lower costs – for patients, hospitals and caregivers.”

 

“The Texas Medical Center member institutions are continually advancing care and exploring technologies that allow us to better connect to and support patients,” said Dr. Robert C. Robbins, President and CEO, Texas Medical Center. “Our ability to connect, monitor and detect issues early on provides us the opportunity to improve patient care.”
