Walgreens, the nation’s largest retail pharmacy, and Qualcomm Life, a subsidiary of wireless technology vendor Qualcomm Inc., have announced a collaboration to seamlessly connect medical devices and personal health data.

Under the partnership, Walgreens will utilize Qualcomm Life’s cloud-based 2net Platform that enables end-to-end interoperability for medical devices and apps to aggregate wireless health device data into its network of mobile apps and websites. 2net will support Walgreens’ Balance Rewards for healthy choices program with “robust medical device connectivity and care coordination capabilities” such as remote patient monitoring, transitional care support and chronic care management, according to the announcement. Compatible Walgreens devices include a wrist-worn blood pressure cuff, a traditional blood pressure cuff and a blood glucose meter.
