MENDOTA HEIGHTS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Healthsense®, Inc., the fastest growing provider of technology-enabled care solutions for the senior care continuum, has been awarded Gold in the Science/Medical software category of the prestigious Edison Awards. Healthsense's eNeighbor® technology platform was recognized for its impact on wellness and prevention, which the award program's namesake Thomas Edison believed should be valued above focusing on disease alone.
"We are honored to be recognized in such a prestigious manner, particularly given the high caliber and outstanding offerings of our fellow nominees," said Healthsense President and CEO A.R. Weiler, noting that GE Healthcare's DoseWatch and Centricity360 products were awarded silver and bronze in the same category. "This award validates our focus on providing clinically-focused remote monitoring systems that enable seniors and the chronically ill to safely live as independently as possible."
The Edison Awards are among the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation. Unique to the world of award programs, the Edison Awards are focused on the innovators as much as the innovations. Award winners represent "game changing" products, services and excellence and leadership in innovation.
Many top national and international companies join Healthsense in being recognized by the Edison Awards across 15 categories, including Braun, FitBit, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Lenovo, Logitech, Motorola Solutions, Philips, SpaceX and Tesla Motors. The 2014 Edison Achievement Award Honorees were Elon Musk, CEO and Product Architect of Tesla Motors and CEO/CTO of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), and Yang Yuanqing, Chairman and CEO of Lenovo.
Joining Healthsense's eNeighbor as Gold winners in the Science/Medicine category are the digital health feedback system by Proteus Digital Health (Analytics Systems); Argus® II Retinal Prosthesis System by Second Sight Medical Products Inc. (Assistive Devices); MultiOmyx by GE Healthcare (Detection); Theranos, Inc. (Lab Diagnostics); ECVue Heart Mapping System by CardioInsight & Nottingham Spirk (Surgical Aids); and ROBOT SUIT HAL for medical use by CYBERDYNE Inc. (Treatments).
Healthsense's eNeighbor platform uses sensors and state-of-the-art analytics technology on a scalable wireless platform to collect and analyze information for better care management decisions. Sensors work with Healthsense software to establish the typical routine for each resident based on their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). This becomes the benchmark for establishing when assistance may be needed, allowing caregivers to automatically detect emergency situations and emerging health concerns before they turn into larger, more serious health concerns.
Weiler notes, "Far more than an emergency call or fall detection system, eNeighbor additionally picks up on subtle clues and alerts caregivers when intervention may be necessary. These early alerts can prevent the need for emergency care or hospitalization or the permanent worsening of chronic conditions. The end result is more informed and proactive care decisions that significantly reduce total medical expenses and, in many cases, allow the senior to gracefully age at home with dignity and respect."
Healthsense, the fastest growing provider of aging services technology, provides technology-enabled care solutions for the entire senior care continuum. With a full range of remote monitoring, emergency response and wellness management solutions, Healthsense helps senior care providers and accountable care organizations significantly reduce costs, increase independence and enhance caregiver and senior experiences. Built on a secure wireless platform, Healthsense products are scalable and enable flexible technology-enabled care designs that help communities deliver the very highest quality of care for the frail elderly and chronically ill.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
