ContinuaWelcome to Continua Health Alliance, where smart technology keeps patients, caregivers and healthcare providers connected and empowered to manage health and wellness anytime, anywhere. Continua Health Alliance is a non-profit, open industry organization of healthcare and technology companies joining together in collaboration to improve the quality of personal healthcare. With more than 220 member companies around the world, Continua is dedicated to establishing a system of interoperable personal connected health solutions. We’re all extremely busy. At the end of the day, it’s hard to find time or motivation for fitness and weight management. This has prompted a rise in chronic diseases and an aging population that requires more supervision and medical intervention than ever before. More than 1 billion people in the world are overweight, and at least 300 million of them are clinically obese. If nothing is done, more than 1.5 billion people are expected to be overweight by 2015. Continua is determined to make a difference. Continua helps design systems to improve health by helping you seamlessly transfer your vital signs from home to your health professional, to help you get real-time feedback on your condition. You’re able to have a discussion with a doctor about the workout you just completed, even if you’re hundreds of miles apart. You’re able to check in on the health status of an aging loved one who lives alone, even if you don’t have time to stop by. This is all thanks to smart technology designed to share updated personal health and safety information with those who care for constant peace of mind. Continua Health Alliance unites smart technology and medical devices with health care industry leaders to empower patients to not only exchange vital information but to change the way they manage health and wellness. Because when patients, loved ones and caregivers connect for greater health, everyone thrives.
