Los Angeles, CA February 28th , 2012 -- NantWorks, LLC announced that it had acquired Boston Life Labs (BLL), a company specializing in the remote monitoring of patient biometric data.

Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, founding Chairman and CEO of NantWorks, welcomed NantCare as the latest company to become part of his groups growing NantHealth division. Wireless monitoring of patients is absolutely key to the future of healthcare, he said. Chronic illness has become epidemic, and that is the biggest problem facing our healthcare system, both in terms of health outcomes and costs. NantCares technology enables healthcare providers to monitor patients with chronic conditions, in their homes or wherever they may be. Providers can intervene as necessary, before patients become seriously ill. They can keep their patients healthy and greatly reduce the number of hospital admissions.

We are there at the point of care, with the technology to link the patient and provider in real time to the full power of that infrastructure. That is the shape of 21st century medicine and we are proud to be a part of it.
