Debbie Power, Vodafone Ireland, IoT Country Manager, said, “We are delighted to partner with HealthBeacon and expand our relationship as they enter new markets with their innovative, patient-focused solution. Through our global network, Vodafone enables IoT connectivity to their smart sharps bin, so medication tracking and adherence data can be captured and transferred securely between patients and their healthcare team. Healthcare is becoming completely connected and Vodafone’s IoT technology and innovation is key to providing better data to enable more informed care decisions. Remote patient monitoring is one element that empowers people to manage their conditions and helps them to live more independently. Our next generation network means we are at the forefront of ensuring healthcare is securely connected now and into the future”.
