“We are thrilled to announce a new collaboration with Garmin”
We are thrilled to announce a new collaboration in healthcare with Garmin, a leading global provider of smartwatches, fitness trackers, and digital health solutions. From now on, clients in Spain, Portugal, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, and Europe will be able to consent to connect their Garmin smartwatch to our platform.
Our clients will be able to retrieve data from Garmin smartwatches and from medical devices of different brands using our SDK , and they will also be able to introduce this data into their systems using our API.
Garmin has been at the forefront of innovation in multiple industries, and humanITcare believes this collaboration will yield remarkable results in contributing to greater healthcare access, as they are doing already with clients in Europe and Brazil.
This collaboration will enable humanITcare to deliver innovative, cutting-edge technology within the healthcare experience to its partners and customers through the complete API and SDK of humanITcare, which offers hardware agnostic approach and easy access to today’s most used medical devices and smartwatch connections.
With this collaboration, humanITcare offers access to health and fitness data of Garmin smartwatches across different countries. HumanITcare is tapping into the extensive experience from Garmin in providing connected wellness solutions. As the CEO and co- founder at humanITcare, Nuria, said, “We are very happy about this collaboration with Garmin. During 2022-2023, the industry of connected health and wearables increased. We see a high demand from hospitals, clinics and insurance companies to remote monitor patients with chronic diseases by using our API hardware agnostic solution. For that reason we believe this collaboration will be key to expand the access to remote healthcare into the next level.”
Jörn Watzke, Senior Director at Garmin Health said: “Remote Digital Health solutions increase the level of service for a broader audience. The integration of physiological data from Garmin smartwatches will give HumanITcare the power to enhance their solution with premium health metrics and therefore provide a great benefit for their healthcare and clinical use cases. We are excited about this collaboration that will be available at start not only in Europe but also in South America and shows that connected health care programmes are important and a massive help globally.”
