NTT DOCOMO Ventures announced that it has invested in Validic, a leading digital healthcare company.
NTT DOCOMO has partnered with Validic to launch 'd healthcare' app in May 2018, allowing users to monitor their daily activities by tracking their steps and weight on a progress chart.
With the integration to Validic’s data connectivity platform, the 'd healthcare' application now enables users to connect their Fitbit, Garmin or other wearable device and sync their data with the application. Based on the data generated, users can then earn d POINTs1 as they accomplish given healthcare goals.
Validic’s scalable, secure solutions help organizations like NTT DOCOMO to improve engagement strategies and health outcomes. To achieve this goal, Validic integrates with over 350 home health devices, wearables and applications, sending personal health data seamlessly into wellness applications, remote monitoring programs and population health initiatives.
Without Validic, NTT DOCOMO would have been required to build separate one-off integrations to support each device, and would – going forward – have to manage the on-going maintenance of each device connection. With this partnership, a growing number of consumer and clinical health devices will be added to the application for d healthcare users through Validic.
NTT DOCOMO Ventures expects the collaboration between the two companies to contribute to the creation of greater value and the expansion of Validic’s business in the Japanese market.
