3G Wireless Technology Empowers Patients to Take Control of Their Health Through the Dulce Wireless Tijuana Project
Date:10/8/2010

TIJUANA, Mexico, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), through its Wireless Reach™ initiative, today announced the launch of the Dulce Wireless Tijuana project.  The project will empower underserved communities to improve diabetes care and prevention through the use of 3G mobile technologies, with the end goal of effectively monitoring and treating the condition.

The project combines mobile applications, web applications, mobile phones, netbooks, laptops, diabetes educational content and health care worker and patient training to create the Dulce Wireless Tijuana system, which is available wirelessly through Qualcomm's 3G technology offered by Iusacell's 3G EV-DO network.  All of these components offer many benefits to promotores (health care workers), such as the real-time ability to locate and receive confidential access to patient information, manage patient appointments and review training curriculum.  Patients are also able to review diabetes information online, such as instructional videos, participate in interactive surveys that help their providers learn how they are managing their diabetes and receive notifications from an alert system.  

The organizations collaborating with Wireless Reach to provide technical assistance, program management, evaluation, in kind and monetary support include:

  • the International Community Foundation (ICF) and its sister organization, the Fundacion Internacional de la Comunidad
  • Iusacell
  • the Social Security Institute of Mexico (IMSS)
  • the Medical School at the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC)
  • the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute (SWDI)
  • Fronteras Unidas PRO SALUD

  • "This project is a significant step forward in increasing patient access to proper diabetes care in Tijuana," said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, cha
