Power of MedApps Moves to the Cloud -FDA Approved Mobile Device That Collects from Many and Aggregates Health Data
Posted Oct 07 2010 9:48pm
Cloud Care is the name of the service and now to be able to have one device that connects and collects from other devices, it will no longer be necessary to have the information stored on a local PC.
HealthPAL is the small, portable dedicated device that MedApps uses to collect data from connected glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters and weight scales. The data is then sent over a secure server to an online portal like Microsoft’s HealthVault or Google Health for caregivers, physicians or the patient themselves to view.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- MedApps is pleased to announce its latest patent-pending innovation: The CloudCare™ Technology Platform.
CloudCare extends the power of the MedApps Remote Health Monitoring System by taking its core technology infrastructure to "the cloud". Cloud computing shifts the model away from the client-server standard, to web-based tools and applications that allow unprecedented flexibility and scalability.
Applying this platform to remote health monitoring technology will help eliminate many of the challenges that have prohibited wide-scale adoption. Firmware, drivers, and dynamic client profiles can all be kept in the cloud and managed remotely. CloudCare can enable a more patient centered healthcare delivery method by taking the focus off of the technology. Users, whether patients or care providers, are not required to have technical expertise to deploy, set-up and maintain equipment.
The CloudCare platform allows MedApps' HealthPAL to enter the ranks of consumer oriented services and devices with embedded cellular technology that are maintained through a cloud-based backend system, such as Amazon's Kindle, OnStar and the Apple iPad.
