The Enterprise Solutions unit of Verizon Communications has introduced a remote patient-monitoring platform to enable collaboration among physicians and patients between office visits.

Called Converged Health Management, the platform enables patients to use biometric devices to collect various health status indicators, such as weight, blood pressure and oxygen saturation and glucose levels, and wirelessly transmit the data to a Version server that clinicians can access.

Patients can access the platform via a smartphone app or Web portal to access personalized medical content, as well as videos, Web seminars and social networking to share experiences with other patients.

Verizon is marketing the platform to insurers, employers and providers to better monitor treatment compliance, increase patient engagement and reduce readmissions. The Food and Drug Administration granted 510(k) marketing clearance of the platform in August 2013.
