Qualcomm Acquires Capsule Technologie

Qualcomm Incorporated today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., has acquired Capsule Technologie, a global provider of medical device integration and clinical data management solutions with more than 1,930 hospital clients in 38 countries. Capsule will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Life.

The acquisition of Capsule extends Qualcomm Life’s connected health offerings into the hospital, ultimately creating a more seamless care continuum from hospital to home and points in between. By combining Qualcomm Life’s wireless expertise and ecosystem of connected medical devices outside of the hospital with Capsule’s leadership for connecting medical devices, EMRs and IT systems across the hospital enterprise, Qualcomm Life is creating an open connected health ecosystem 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 in the ecosystem of connected devices inside the hospital. Capsule’s smart networking goes beyond device integration by delivering timely clinical data to various in-hospital decision support systems, alarm and notification systems and asset management tools, which help reduce latency and transcription errors to ensure timely, informed care.

“Qualcomm is focused on strengthening its position in specific Internet of Everything verticals, like healthcare,” said Derek Aberle, president, Qualcomm Incorporated. “The acquisition of Capsule expands the breadth of our healthcare platform, enabling us to provide connectivity solutions for the entire care continuum and create one of the world’s largest connected health ecosystems. This will be an important step in advancing the Internet of Medical Things.”

“As health care continues to move into the home and ambulatory settings and outside of traditional care areas such as the hospital, the convergence of medical device data from wherever the patient is located is critically important,” explained Gene Cattarina, CEO, Capsule. “Together, Qualcomm Life and Capsule will power this convergence by making data more accessible and interoperable among care teams to provide true continuity of care at the hospital, in the home and at all points in between.”
