March 5, 2019 — Connected healthcare solutions provider VivaLNK announced its internet of things (IoT)-enabled medical wearable Sensor Platform, complete with a range of sensors, edge computing technologies and an internet of health things (IoHT) data cloud. This platform captures human vitals and biometrics, and delivers data from the patient to edge computing devices, as well as to the cloud, for application integration and analysis.
Available through the VivaLNK Developer Program, the Sensor Platform enables IoHT solution partners to easily capture streams of patient data such as heart and respiratory rates, temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythms, activity and more. Partners such as Vitalic Medical, a digital health company focusing on early detection of patient health deterioration and potential falls, is developing a bedside monitoring solution using the platform.
IoHT has the potential to significantly change healthcare for the better, and the key starts with data, according to VivaLNK. Much of the machine learning and intelligence will come from user-generated data that currently does not exist or is not easily accessible. This is where wearable devices collecting medical-grade data that can easily connect to networked applications becomes crucial.
VivaLNK showcased its new platform at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, Feb. 11-15 in Orlando, Fla.
