mCare Labs to Commercialize Next-generation Mobile Healthcare Services

San Francisco, CA | Posted on December 28th, 2009

Todays medical infrastructure entails some major limitations and challenges.

First, the current medical infrastructure is inefficient and leads to inflated costs for overall patient care. Because chronically-ill and hospitalized patients are often tethered to instrumentation, available medical capacity is severely restricted and rarely, if ever, efficiently utilized.

Second, decades-old medical systems in-place does not help either as the patient quality-of-care also does not improve.

Finally, current-generation medical systems were not designed to exploit the future medical advances such as in: microchip technology; remotely-controlled wireless devices implanted within the body and operated at the molecular level; or, advances in nanotechnology, biosciences, bioengineering, biochemistry and biotechnology that hold the promise of an ever-expanding pool of medical knowledge in these disciplines.

mCare Labs is rethinking the evolution of future medical services by building the next-generation infrastructure for pervasive mobile healthcare services. The aims are: (1) to dramatically reduce the medical costs for patient care, (2) to significantly increase the medical capacity and enhance the patient quality-of-service, and, (3) to create a flexible 'standard-based' medical ecosytem that help exploit future medical advances and also support mobile healthcare providers and clinical device vendors.

mCare Labs is building a small team to demonstrate the next-generation mobile medical services through a 'proof-of-concept' prototype.
