Qualcomm Purchases Capsule Technologie
Qualcomm subsidiary Qualcomm Life has acquired Capsule Technologie, a global provider of medical device integration and clinical data management solutions.
The purchase will combine Qualcomm Life’s wireless expertise and portfolio of connected medical devices outside of the hospital with Capsule's leadership for connecting medical devices, EMR’s and IT systems.
Qualcomm says the acquisition is creating one of the world’s largest open connected health ecosystems to deliver intelligent care everywhere.
Capsule’s medical device integration and clinical data management platform enables data collection, EMR and health IT system integration and monitoring. The company’s smart networking delivers timely clinical data to in-hospital decision support systems, alarm and notification systems and asset management tools. —Michael Cipriano
