Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) said that Brazil-based Vitalbox has launched its personal health platform using Progress technologies.
The Vitalbox solution is designed to enhance individual healthcare while also reducing medical costs by providing a personal health map and alerts. Progress has enabled Vitalbox to easily manage the customized profiles of thousands of users more effectively than with traditional database and software techniques. As a result, the social business is now planning to introduce its low-cost preventative healthcare tools in countries around the world.
As the world´s population continues to increase, grow older and develop chronic diseases earlier, providers are challenged with making healthcare more accessible, effective and affordable.
