BOCA RATON, Fla.--ADT Security Services announced yesterday the creation of a medical advisory board for its health monitoring services, called ADT WellHealth. All five members of the board come from a medical background.
Michael Lynch, Ph.d, is the director of ADT WellHealth: "The experience, quality and dedication of our board members will tremendously benefit ADT as we continue to roll out or WellHealth suite of products. We will count on these professionals to help us keep WellHealth relevant to all stakeholders in disease management, including employers, the health care industry, government agencies and the general public," said Lynch in a provided statement.

ADT's WellHealth solutions keep track of health regimens and medication compliance through digital devices that connect patients to ADT's monitoring centers. The service is also set up to include services from registered nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals. The ADT WellHealth line was introduced in 2005 at the White House Conference on Aging.
