Maxis Berhad (Maxis), Malaysia’s leading communications service provider and Embedded Wireless Labs (EWL), a home-grown healthcare solutions provider, have announced their partnership today to bring to market a new Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solution for Health Monitoring. The solution leverages on EWL’s remote patient monitoring solution and Maxis’ M2M capabilities, with which patients’ wellness and vital signs can be remotely captured by healthcare providers and then monitored via any smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop. Love On Wheels Healthcare Services Sdn. Bhd. (LOWHS), an innovative, new breed of local extended healthcare providers recognised by the Malaysian Government, is the first user to adopt the solution for their patients.
With the M2M Health Monitoring Solution, a patient’s health data will first be collected through a range of Bluetooth enabled medical devices and sent to EWL’s Health Server, which can then be remotely accessed in real time by clinicians and care-givers via the EWL patient monitoring portal. Maxis enables connectivity to the Zilant™ Health Server, with an M2M 3GB data plan.
T.Kugan, Maxis’ Head of Digital Services, said, “Our partnership with EWL and having LOWHS on board as our flagship customer represents an ecosystem of local players offering secure connectivity, innovative IT solutions and healthcare services. This is a winning combination that innovates around traditional healthcare service delivery models, and we hope this is the first of many M2M solutions which leverages technology to drive innovation in key vertical industries. We believe this mutually beneficial partnership is a step in the right direction for all parties in working towards a future where customers will have greater mobile access to healthcare services through technology.”

This sets a pathway for a new healthcare experience in Malaysia,” said K. Mohan Kumar, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, LOWHS.
