Powered by the KORE M2M network and the MedApps remote health monitoring solution, Meridian Health was honored with a Gold award in the Healthcare category for its innovations in the telehealth sector. The annual Value Chain Awards recognize the most successful adopters of M2M technology and the solution providers that make their successes possible.
"We congratulate KORE, MedApps and Meridian Health on their Gold Value Chain Award win," said Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. "Meridian Health serves as an excellent example of how connected devices can help patients recover in the home environment."
