Samsung seeks mHealth tech partners to foster innovation

As the mHealth wearable market heats up, Samsung is seeking out partners, including Microsoft and SAP, to advance services and device innovation.

The company is eyeing SAP's data analytics technology, called Care Circles, according a Korea Times report. Care Circles, which is powered by SAP's HANA technology, lets physicians tap telemedicine to monitor and assist patients in remote locations. However, there is little insight yet as to what Samsung's partnership with Microsoft would include.

Samsung's collaborative strategies are part of the Korean vendor's intention to develop a healthcare ecosystem and drive $9.2 billion in revenue from a healthcare business, according to the report. Article
