Validic, higi team-up over remote patient monitoring


Validic — which platform allows seamless connection with fitness and health devices — is teaming-up with higi to provide healthcare organizations with more diverse and more actionable health data to improve healthcare treatments and outcomes.

Under the deal, Validic’s clients — including payers, providers, pharma, healthcare technology vendors and wellness companies — will be able to access higi consumers’ real-time biometric data with patient authorization. higi’s health station network is the largest of such networks in the nation with more than 30 million unique users. Validic’s clients also will have the ability to effectively engage patients utilizing higi stations where more than 1 million tests are completed a week.

On the other hand, higi will expand its reach and distribution to Validic’s 160 million person client population in 47 countries around the world.

“higi, like Validic, believes that access to actionable health information can not only motivate patient behavior, but can also empower healthcare organizations to deliver a higher quality of care to improve health outcomes,” said Ryan Beckland, CEO and Co-Founder of Validic.

higi’s network has grown to almost 10,000 FDA 510k cleared health stations located in pharmacies, groceries and other retail outlets nationwide. In addition, higi’s platform enables users to track their statistics, participate in challenges and engage with others to change their behaviors and improve their health.
