Significant pilot trials of mHealth tools and solutions to remotely monitor patients with chronic diseases have been conducted by hospitals in Europe and demonstrated the ability to reduce hospital readmissions, length of stay, and the associated costs. The 2net Platform gives telehealth service providers a wireless communications technology that can scale and flex with them as they move from pilot projects to mass-market adoption.
