From checking blood glucose levels, to monitoring the movements of a newborn baby, Canadians are increasingly able to monitor their health across a growing variety of devices and services. What most will not know is that in the background, a wireless connection is powering the delivery of crucial information needed to improve the management and monitoring of one's vitals and overall wellness.

At CTIA Wireless 2012, Mansell Nelson, Vice-President of Machine to Machine, Rogers Communications will provide Canadian carrier insights to the discussion on mobile health, including how carriers select strategic players, an overview of innovative M2M health solutions and predictions of where the industry is going.

"Through powering reliable connection for end-to-end patient care with integrated tools and support like remote glucose monitors and location monitoring, we're enabling health care solution providers to deliver peace of mind to patients and healthcare professionals," said Mansell Nelson, Vice-President, Machine to Machine, Rogers Communications. "We're contributing to provide the foundation for better health care by enabling a seamless connection from patients to practitioners or consumers to their vital health information."

Rogers announced an agreement with Exmovere Holdings Inc. where Rogers will provide in exclusivity wireless services to enable Exmovere's patented biosensor infant pyjamas, Exmobaby. The new product monitors a newborn baby's ECG, skin temperature and movement and can transmit alerts to a personal computer, tablet, or mobile device. The new product is expected to be available in Canadian retail outlets later this year.

"Working with Rogers will allow us to provide a meaningful connected experience for parents and childcare workers in Canada," said David Bychkov, CEO, Exmovere Holdings Inc. "Rogers wireless networks provide a reliable distribution platform for our flagship technology and we're excited to bring the Exmobaby to Canada later this year."

Through the Rogers Data Alliance and strategic relationships, Rogers works with a range of service providers to deliver seamless and reliable connected experiences to physicians and patients.

PositiveID Corporation is one of many service providers currently working with Rogers to enable self-monitoring and improve quality of life for people with diabetes across Canada through the iglucose solution. iglucose, a CTIA E-Tech Awards finalist, uses mobile technology to revolutionize the way individuals with diabetes manage their condition through seamlessly communicating data from glucometers to the cloud, enabling glucose readings to be shared in real-time with family members and caregivers. This data is essential for healthcare professionals to identify the effectiveness of treatment therapies.

"The ability to easily share blood glucose readings anytime and anywhere is a breakthrough in diabetes management," said Mary Ellen Harrison, Vice-President, PositiveID. "Through working with Rogers in Canada, we have the opportunity to better the lives of millions people with diabetes throughout Canada by providing reliable information to patients, caregivers and families."
