Vaica Announces SimpleMed+, its Next Generation Medication Adherence Management Solution for Chronically-ill and Hospital Discharged Patients

ORLANDO, February 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Vaica today announced the commercial availability of SimpleMed+, the latest addition to its medication adherence and telehealth management platform. SimpleMed+ is a medication dispenser for use by patients who take a number of oral medications per day. Medications are loaded into the dispenser by a simple insertion of a standard pharmacy-prefilled multi-med blister packs, ensuring an error-free loading of the dispenser with a weekly supply of medications and alleviating the need for a nurse or a caregiver to assist or supervise the patient's medication intake process. SimpleMed+ currently supports standard multi-med blister packs made by MTS, a subsidiary of Omnicell (NASDAQ: OMCL), with support for other brands of multi-med blister packs to follow soon. SimpleMed+ is also a telehealth hub that collects and uploads the patient's vital signs data directly into the patient's cloud-based EHR. It has an integrated NFC reader for home-care workforce timesheet management, and a QR code reader for the transfer of blister-specific information. SimpleMed+ connects with Vaica's cloud service via its built-in cellular communications device or via Qualcomm's 2net.

"With medication non-adherence accounting for about 40% of all hospital readmissions and with the healthcare reform transformation from pay-per-service to pay-per-outcomes, medication adherence management now becomes a must-have for every care provider -  hospital discharge transition care, ACOs, and specialty pharmacies, in particular," said Gil Margalit, CEO of Vaica. "We are committed to providing the best medication adherence management solution for care providers, that covers all medication modalities and easy to integrate with other care-delivery and patient-management systems, and we believe that SimpleMed+ is an important step in this direction".

"We are excited about SimpleMed+ and see it as a critical component in closing the medication management loop", said Jean Boutin, President and Founder of Synergy Medical of Quebec, Canada, a world-leader in multi-med blister filling automation for pharmacies. "With recent changes in the healthcare market structure and economics, we are now experiencing a surging demand in the US market for the delivery of medications in adherence-enhanced packaging, such as multi-med blister packs, and for automation and IT to support it. With SimpleMed+, we can now cross the gap from the pharmacy to the patient to provide an integrated and streamlined medication management solution, end-to-end. Medication adherence is only as strong as its weakest link and now, with SimpleMed+, it becomes much stronger."

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
