Connected Health and IOT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming reactive ‘sick care’ into proactive ‘well care’.

IoT-enabled technology continuously collects patient data to enable proactive decision-making that can improve clinical and operational outcomes.

With payer models increasingly incorporating outcomes-based reimbursements and penalties, IoT is also improving the financial health of hospitals. Preventing costly reactive care and avoidable readmissions in chronic disease populations.

A solid IoT strategy allows you to glean accurate insights in real- or near real-time. Reducing medical errors and time to intervention. IoT trend data also enables clinical decisions to be made earlier than is possible with traditional episodic care.

Data collection

The first step of your IoT strategy should be the deployment of devices optimized for data collection. Sensors. Monitors. Detectors. Camera systems.

We help you select best-of-breed devices, ensuring their underlying infrastructure is optimized for a scalable, interconnected IoT model. From Edge computing to the hybrid cloud, our IoT scientists, engineers and clinicians help you implement the right digital strategy based on your current and future technology roadmap.

Data aggregation and insights

To gain predictive insights in real- or near real-time, the data captured from remote patient monitoring devices must be aggregated, normalized and processed in a standardized way.

Our Data Analytics and AI teams work with you to begin your connected health journey with a solid data rationalization plan. Identifying the current and future state of data management. Desired analytics. Preventing costly manual workflows, duplication of processes and avoidable technical debt.

Workflow automation

We enable you to build apps that not only consume and interpret remote monitoring data, but that also automate downstream actions based on these insights.

Meaningful workflow-congruent alerts for clinicians and virtual response teams. Automation solutions that can replace heavily manual processes, and continuously manage higher patient counts than human-based workflows. We also develop digital solutions for proactive patient engagement, such as portal notifications and smart alerts driven by risk identification from remote monitoring data.
