Fujitsu is beginning to preview a new type of phone that allows users to collect and share their own medical data. The prototype device, which uses Bluetooth technology to let people share their data, has already been certified by one major health care organization.
At the CEATEC (Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies) conference, which started Oct. 5 in Japan, Fujitsu unveiled the first prototype of this health care phone. The company also announced that the device has been certified by the Continua Health Alliance .
Once the medical data reaches the phone via Bluetooth, it can be sent to doctors and downloaded into EHR (electronic health record) applications on the handset.
Fujitsu said it will release more specific details of the phone when the commercial model arrives.
