Health and wellness technology leader BettrLife, and pioneer in consumer connected health devices Withings, have announced a business partnership to jointly promote their interactive mobile healthcare applications and products.
The partnership will allow for direct integration between BettrLife’s suite of nutrition & activity tools and Withings state-of-the-art devices, including the Smart Body Analyzer wireless scale, Withings Pulse activity tracker, and Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor. Data captured from the Withings devices will seamlessly flow into BettrLife’s comprehensive nutrition, activity and biometric logging platform where data can then be securely monitored by a healthcare provider via the HealthCoach Dashboard, allowing for two-way interaction and engagement with patients.
“This partnership expands BettrLife’s ecosystem to include some of the most innovative connected devices on the market today,” said BettrLife CEO, Don Schoen. “Data from Withings devices will increase overall patient engagement with the BettrLife system, ultimately leading to more positive outcomes for both patients and providers.”
“Partnering with BettrLife will allow Withings to be more present in the healthcare space and reach a broader diversity of consumers & patients who can benefit from our products,” said Withings President, Philippe Schwartz.
The combined technology will be exhibited live at the upcoming HIMSS 2014 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. Withings and BettrLife are joint sponsors in the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion where live actors will demonstrate the powerful capabilities of connected mobile health technology in both the clinical and home setting.
Founded in 2010, BettrLife is a unique technology solution that enables healthcare providers to engage their patients to take control of their own health and wellness through an integrated suite of food, nutrition and activity tracking tools. This interaction facilitates patient engagement and leads to long-term healthy lifestyle changes within their populations.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
