NEWBURY, U.K. -- Vodafone Global Enterprise – the business within Vodafone which manages the communications needs of its largest multinational customers – today announced an agreement with Boston Scientific Corporation, a global leader in the design of medical devices, to develop mobile health monitoring solutions that are set to transform healthcare by providing doctors with real-time information about patients' cardiac health and certain vital signs remotely.

Remote healthcare monitoring systems, powered by Vodafone's global world-leading* "machine-to-machine" (M2M) technology, will allow patients to use mobile devices to send health information to their doctor without having to leave their home. This reduces pressure on hospital outpatient and inpatient services and significantly increases the speed with which doctors and consultants can respond to early signs of deterioration in their patients' cardiac condition.
