Keywords: Disease Management, Telemonitoring
Digital solution and service (e.g. application/digital health portal/platform/AI based system/etc.)
Short description
A complete care system for remote monitoring of patients in their homes or on the move. The system consists of an IoT-enabled medical device connectivity gateway and cloud-based portals for patients and clinicians together with sophisticated decision support and rule-based processing of medical observations. Using sophisticated IoT discovery technology and semantic representation, medical legacy devices can be mapped and exposed as Continua/IEEE11073 devices to applications thus making it possible for application developers to leverage on the latest standards and at the same time protect customers’ investments into medical devices. The solution was nominated for the Innovation Radar Prize 2018, Tech for Society. The users of the solution include several hospitals in Sweden, Denmark, UK, France, and others.
