M2M and IoT Services Leader Provides Connectivity for Medical Alert Systems Delivering Health and Safety Benefits for Seniors and Peace of Mind for Caregivers
ALPHARETTA, GA. —January 26, 2016 – IoT Evolution Expo 2016 —KORE, the world’s largest managed wireless network services provider specializing in Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, today expanded its existing agreement to provide enhanced connectivity for MobileHelp’s suite of Medical Alert Systems. Through the KORE network, MobileHelp provides seniors and caregivers with proactive solutions for home-based and on-the-go health and safety monitoring.
For more than six years, the connectivity provided by the KORE network has allowed MobileHelp’s customers to embrace living independently, with access to emergency help whenever they needed it. As MobileHelp now expands its offering to provide customers with new health management solutions, the KORE network will become even more integral to the company’s supporting infrastructure.
“When it comes to health and safety, network reliability is a critical component,” said MobileHelp CEO Rob Flippo. “Our partnership with KORE ensures that our customers have reliable access to the products and services we provide to help keep them safe, healthy and in charge.”
“With an aging population, it’s vital for people to live independently as long as possible and as safely as possible,” said KORE CEO Alex Brisbourne. “MobileHelp provides seniors with the ability to proactively manage their medications, track their activity levels and vital signs such as weight and blood pressure, and receive emergency assistance – which in turn gives them the option to stay in their homes longer. We’re pleased that our partnership with MobileHelp is helping make this possible.”
