Telefonica helps develop infectious disease monitoring kit

Tuesday 12 May 2015 | 16:28 CET | News
Telefonica has joined forces with the CIBERESP research centre of the Carlos III Health Institute to launch a project aimed at monitoring people who have had contact with imported infectious diseases and are at risk of developing them. As part of the project, Telefonica will provide 200 participants with a kit made up of a smartphone monitoring application, a SIM card and a digital thermometer with a Bluetooth interface. The participants will use the tele-monitoring kit during a 21-day incubation period, reporting back to the medical team in Barcelona's Hospital Clinic twice a day.
