Anthem Blue Cross of California announced a pilot program with Canada’s Ideal Life to use their wireless weight scales for a test group of congestive heart patients.  Their C.A.R.E. (Congestive Heart Failure Ambulatory Remote monitoring and Engagement) program will place the Bluetooth-enabled scales in CHF patients’ homes and send the information to their doctors, case managers and caregivers.  Why weight scales for CHF?  Weight gain and fluctuations are considered leading indicators of a potential health crisis.  Release.
