CARY, N.C. – Health care solutions provider Smartlink Mobile Systems has changed its name to Smartlink Health Solutions to reflect the company’s expanding multi-pronged approach to wellness and chronic disease management, and its focus on enabling clients to accelerate the transition to value-based payment models. “We initially innovated around improving care management and coordination between patients and their providers via mobile technology, but, over the last several years, we have continued to innovate by expanding our suite of patient engagement solutions, and in so doing, we have developed a much broader value-based portfolio,” said Dr. Siu Tong, CEO of Smartlink, in a statement. The name change also reflects the recent strategic investment in Smartlink by DXC Technology, which has enabled the company to expand its development team and accelerate its ability to bring new innovations to market.
