Macaw is designed to assess individual’s health risks and will also serve as a hub to track health metrics and activity, as well as integrate information from other health and fitness apps, plus lab results and wireless devices.

US Preventive Medicine said by using Qualcomm Life’s wireless expertise, Macaw can connect an individual’s health apps and wireless devices for tracking weight, fitness, overall activity and biometrics – including pedometers, glucose meters, activity armbands, scales, labs, sleep managers, mobile weight loss apps and blood pressure cuffs – into a single app for complete tracking.

Qualcomm Life vice president and general manager Rick Valencia said by combining US Preventive’s clinically-based program – The Prevention Plan – with Qualcomm Life’s wireless expertise, they have transformed the smartphone into a personal health monitor.
