Post CES 'Most Mentioned' and More

Mike Feibus

Following CES 2018, I have plenty to explore in healthtech, especially the design, metrics, and integrations on the verge with wearables, hearables, and other health tech trends. I’ll be touching on insights with Samsung and MobileHealth emergency response system.

Pay attention to directional changes in the health sector in regards to diabetes & hearing aids.

Non-intrusive data collection is huge, but more importantly, what consumers can gain from the metrics without the data overload.

 

Notice the twitter ‘most mentioned’ - if you’re on twitter, follow me here for updates.

Intel, Flex Inject Choice into Home Health Market

Intel and Flex revealed today that they have partnered on a remote patient monitoring platform that gives care providers a new level of flexibility and choice.

Flex is now offering the Flex IoT Compute Engine, built around Intel’s Health Application Platform, a compact gateway that remote care providers can use to anchor monitoring kits that are reliable, secure and simple to use.

Remote patient monitoring is one of the fastest-growing segments in healthcare because it has such great potential to slash hospital readmissions and, consequently, lower costs for our overburdened healthcare system. Constant monitoring helps ensure patients are complying with recovery plans, and also helps spot signs of trouble early, so providers can react before things spiral.

Intel and Flextronics believe the openness of the platform will draw remote care providers, because they want to be able to choose which cloud services to use. And they also want to maintain control of their patients’ data from end to end.

I’ll be in Boston next week for the Connected Health Conference, meeting with – among others – remote care providers. I’ll see what they have to say about the potential for this market, and also get a sense for what they’re looking for in home-health gateways that anchor their platforms.

I’ll report back soon. So watch this space!
