Unique Collaborations Needed to Improve Home Med Equipment

Seeking Alpha (seekingalpha.com) reports on July 29th: Novartis (Pharma), Medtronic (Med Device), Oracle (Software) and Kaiser Permanente (Health System) among those providing Proteus Digital Health with $172M to develop "a 'smart pill' that a patient swallows. It records data on the internal milieu and transmits it externally via a patch on the abdomen. Reactions with stomach juices provide the power."

Hopefully, companies will grow in their willingness "to play with others" to get cross-cutting improvements in healthcare interventions to market. No longer do the solutions sit within the domain of any one sector!
