Qualcomm Life, Inc. Key Developments

Medtronic and Qualcomm Life, Inc Collaborate to Develop CGM Systems for Type 2 Diabetes

Medtronic said that it has entered into a global, multi-year collaboration with Qualcomm's (QCOM) wholly-owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc. to jointly develop future generation continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems that aim to improve health outcomes for people with diabetes. The collaboration will leverage Medtronic's market-leadership in diabetes management and Qualcomm Life's expertise in developing reference designs for wireless, single-use and small integrated modules to create more affordable, easier-to-use CGM systems, including a new sensor and smaller design that can provide near real-time and retrospective glucose data. The initial focus of the collaboration will be to develop a single-use CGM system designed for broader practice by general practitioners. This collaboration supports Medtronic's strategy to develop comprehensive CGM solutions that not only measure glucose but enable the delivery of actionable insights to both patients and providers.

Qualcomm Life, Inc., and UnitedHealthcare Collaborates to Develop and Deliver Connected Health Solutions to Consumers Across the United States

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., and UnitedHealthcare are collaborating to develop and deliver connected health solutions to consumers across the United States. This collaboration will focus on creating new UnitedHealthcare programs and services that incorporate the latest generation of wearables, medical devices and diagnostic tests that leverage Qualcomm Life's 2net™ Platform for medical-grade connectivity. The companies made the announcement at the annual HIMSS conference, taking place in Las Vegas, NV, February 29 – March 4. The first program under this new collaboration is UnitedHealthcare Motion™, a health and wellness program powered by Qualcomm Life's 2net Connectivity Platform for employers nationwide. UnitedHealthcare Motion is designed to help plan participants become healthier and more active, while helping them pay for the cost of everyday health care. Available on a select basis to companies with 101 to 300 employees with a fully insured health plan, UnitedHealthcare Motion helps employers address rising care costs by providing employees and their covered spouses with custom-designed wearable devices that track the number of steps each user takes throughout the day, calculating the total number, frequency and intensity of the steps taken. The data acquired from the wearable devices is then sent to the UnitedHealthcare Motion app, which is powered with seamless and secure connectivity through Qualcomm Life's 2net Mobile connectivity platform. Employees with these wearable devices earn Health Reimbursement Account credits that can total up to $1,460 per year, based on their usage, helping to save on health care costs. Employers can also obtain premium savings based on the combined results of their program participants. Qualcomm Life and UnitedHealthcare will demonstrate the UnitedHealthcare Motion app in Qualcomm Life's booth 6437 at HIMSS 2016. Qualcomm Life and its subsidiary, Capsule, will also demonstrate their leading connectivity and integration solutions for medical devices in the hospital, at home and all points in between.

Qualcomm Expands Collaboration with Novartis for Connected COPD Therapy

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary Qualcomm Life, Inc. and Novartis are expanding their global connected therapy management collaboration. Novartis will leverage Qualcomm Life's connectivity solutions to power its next-generation connected Breezhaler(TM), the inhaler for its Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) portfolio. Qualcomm Life is developing the reference design for the small, low-power, disposable module to connect the next generation Breezhaler, which is part of Novartis' leading portfolio of COPD treatments comprised of Onbrez(TM), Seebri(TM) and Ultibro(TM), with Ultibro leading the category in the LABA/LAMA therapy class. The module is designed to seamlessly connect with Qualcomm Life's 2net(TM) Platform, and can detect and report inhaler usage, as well as the duration of the patient's inhalation which indicates quality of the inhalation. Through this collaboration, Novartis aims to be the first company with a completely integrated, connected delivery device that will provide a simple experience for patients, eliminate the need to assemble the device themselves and enable them to more easily manage their chronic disease. With near-real time data capture from the patient and the connected device, Novartis aims to improve medication adherence and ultimately health outcomes for COPD patients. Novartis plans to launch the new connected Breezhaler in 2019 following manufacturing, testing and regulatory approvals.
