IoT Healthcare: PodM2M to Provide Connectivity for ForaCare IoT Telehealth

By Ken Briodagh November 08, 2017

In a recent release, PodM2M (a division of Pod Group), an MVNO specializing in global data connectivity solutions for the M2M/IoT market, has announced an agreement with ForaCare, a company dedicated to developing products for chronic disease management by combining innovative technologies and clinical applications.

Under the agreement, PodM2M reportedly will provide a connectivity solution for ForaCare´s Telehealth platform and connected healthcare monitoring devices. These devices include the Test’N Go Glucose Monitoring Meter, allowing patients to see trends in their blood glucose levels and plan their treatment and the VSM100 Vital Signs Monitor, which remotely monitors key patient indicators such as blood pressure, temperature and oxygen levels and reports back to the physician.

“Pod offered a cost-effective solution and always gave us a quick response to our questions,” said Adrian Alexander, Sales Account Manager, ForaCare. “We also like the fact that Pod can operate globally as we’re in the process of expanding into other markets outside the US. Thanks to our confidence in the service that Pod provides we will continue to plan our growth and recommend the service.”

PodM2M´s specialist focus on remote and mission critical applications is based on its “No Single Point of Failure” network topology, whereby multiple core networks (IMSIs) are included on the same SIM card and can be automatically switched to provide back-up networks using Pod´s Multi-IMSI app on the SIM. Pod´s extensive experience in this area has led it to develop a special “Pod Profile” which can be used as a bootstrap IMSI on eUICC SIM cards, providing an extra layer of resilience.

“Our expertise in providing connectivity for mission critical applications makes our solution a perfect fit for healthcare IoT applications such as ForaCare´s TeleHealth System,” said Sam Colley, CEO, Pod Group USA. “We are constantly researching new and innovative ways to increase the resilience and security of IoT connectivity which is vital for the growth and uptake of IoT solutions.”

The upcoming all-new IoT Evolution Health event will be digging deep into telehealth, remote patient monitoring and many other critical IoT Healthcare issues. For more information, click here.
