T-Mobile is working with Maryland-based Zyter, to deliver virtual healthcareincluding telehealth and remote patient monitoring and care team collaboration to healthcare organisations and their patients across the USA.

Together, the companies are making virtual care more accessible to more people, which could improve patient outcomes, reduce readmission rates and increase overall patient wellbeing.

Since Covid-19, there has been more demand than ever for virtual healthcare. According to IDC, 51% of US consumers are concerned or very concerned about going to a healthcare facility. Additionally, the Federal Communications Commission has reported that more than 18 million American do not have access to high-speed broadband networks.

By partnering with T-Mobile, Zyter’s digital health platform – and products including, telehealth, remote patient monitoring and ZyterHome – will reach more people over the operator’s 5G network.

“We believe that every American has the right to quality healthcare that is safe and secure,” said Mike Katz, executive vice president at T-Mobile. “By partnering with Zyter, we can outfit healthcare organisations of all sizes with solutions that reach more people and enable faster and more reliable virtual care through familiar devices like smartphones and tablets.”

Zyter and T-Mobile plan to collaborate to deliver integrated healthcare to existing and potential T-Mobile customers nationwide. Together, the companies will enable healthcare organisations to provide patients with remote and secure collaboration with care teams who can monitor, diagnose and remotely treat patients anytime, virtually anywhere, using the T-Mobile 4G LTE and 5G network.

“This is a significant agreement for Zyter as it enables us to leverage the vast resources and footprint of T-Mobile to make our digital health more accessible to more patients,” said Sanjay Govil, CEO of Zyter. “By working together, we can help organisations improve patient satisfaction while maintaining care quality and lowering costs.”

These technologies are already available for integrated delivery networks, life science companies, hospitals, health systems and payer organisations around the USA and, with T-Mobile, more healthcare providers will be able to scale and deploy virtual health to ensure that more Americans have access to quality care in their own homes.

Zyter delivers cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) digital health products for providers, payers and patients that span telehealth, home health and remote patient monitoring, as well as care, use and population health management. In 2021, Zyter acquired Casenet, and together the two companies’ products are used to manage healthcare for 11% of the US population.

Zyter’s products can improve clinical operations and patient outcomes while reducing healthcare costs by enhancing interoperability, communication and collaboration. The company’s 5G-ready platform also supports IoT, smart technology and thermal imaging. Founded in 2017, the privately-held company is based in Rockville, Maryland.

Based in Bellevue, Washington, T-Mobile provides services through its subsidiaries and operates flagship brands T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile and Sprint.
