Continua Health Alliance, an international organization of healthcare and technology companies based in Beaverton, Ore., will partner with Austin, Texas-based Vignet, a provider of person-centric connected health platforms and solutions, to develop an interoperable source code software library for mobile platforms dubbed the Continua Enabling Source Library (mCESL).

The mCESL code is planned to be available to Continua Health Alliance members later this year, and with it the capability to connect a variety of interoperable personal health devices using every day smart phones and health records. The program will grant Continua membership access to a reference library, using remote devices that provide mobile access to care.

At the completion of the Continua-Vignet project, Continua has set forth plans to work with platform developers on a formal rollout of the mCESL program within the open source community.
