Foxconn to Partner with Advocate Aurora, Develop New Health Care Tech
Advocate Aurora Health and Foxconn Health Technology Business Group announced last week a multi-faceted collaboration focused on technology innovations and integration. The effort will connect Foxconn's digital health solutions with Advocate Aurora Health's growing portfolio of virtual health offerings to enhance access points for health and wellness via web and mobile.
The organizations will hone in on three key focus areas: enhancing preventive care and employer-based wellness programs; building a "smart city" connectivity infrastructure; and investing in precision medicine and transformational training programs for a clinical team of the future.
"Our employees' health is our top priority," said Leonard Wu, CEO of Foxconn Health Technology Business Group. "We are thrilled to partner with Advocate Aurora Health not only to bring together two organizations committed to health technology innovations but to provide first class health care and medical services to our Foxconn US employees."
"Foxconn supports our relentless pursuit of safety and quality, and we look forward to exploring breakthrough connections to extend these offerings to consumers across environments ," said Jim Skogsbergh, President and CEO, Advocate Aurora Health. "Our newly announced plans of expansion in Racine County, the same community where Foxconn recently broke ground, provides the perfect location to pilot these value-added opportunities for consumers."
