Develop interoperable and secure healthcare products and services
Medical device manufacturers and health information system providers use egdedin technology to build lab systems, clinical applications, hospital information systems, tele-health and home-care products, and online healthcare delivery services. Medical device manufacturers and health information systems providers use edgedin technology to enable access to patient health information and device performance data across many disparate and heterogeneous healthcare environments such as hospital networks, departmental systems, and healthcare providers.
edgedin solution bundles edgedin Foundation, edgedin apps, edgedin professional services, and our proven methodology for developing and launching connected products and services to solve the biggest challenges in the implementation of connected healthcare applications.
The restraint of current device connectivity
Extending healthcare delivery beyond traditional healthcare facilities and providing next generation medical devices and health information systems require different kind of connectivity and communication technology. Medical devices and healthcare systems need to be built with communication capabilities for sending and receiving data across any type of network both outside and within healthcare facilities.
Connected Healthcare Challenges
Providers of next generation medical products and services including medical device manufacturers have to overcome many hurdles in order to develop enterprise applications for connected healthcare products. These challenges include but not limited to:
Complex implementation of medical device connectivity especially when devices are required to both receive and send data or if there's a need for bi-directional communication and ad-hoc connectivity.
High cost of building and integrating connected healthcare products and services. In addition to the significant investments in infrastructure needed by connected healthcare applications there is a high cost associated with customization and integration efforts required by 3rd party connectivity products.
Protection of patient information becomes even more challenging when building connected healthcare applications that exchange patient health information and access medical device performance data.
Interoperability between different medical devices and between medical devices and other health information systems. Even with industry standards in place there are still critical underlying communication issues to be dealt with in order to enable interoperability between connected healthcare applications.
Steep learning curve associated with new technology solutions and 3rd party connectivity products. This also adds a lot of risk when medical device manufacturers are required to integrate their capability with 3rd party proprietary technology.
Connected applications. Unleashed.
Despite the recent technological advancements in network connectivity and the wide spread of Internet based technologies, developing connected healthcare applications and systems that encompass next generation medical devices remains challenging and costly due to the current limitations of device connectivity within existing network infrastructures. Existing Web technologies are designed for servers and data centers, however edgedin Foundation platform allows exsiting Web technologies to easily be adapted to devices, applications, and information systems that are outside the data center and operate under ad-hoc connectivity circumstances.
Connected Healthcare Challenges. Solved.
edgedin Foundation platform enables medical collaboration and health information sharing and exchange in a simple and secure manner. edgedin unique approach to medical device connectivity reduces the cost of connected healthcare applications and enables interoperability between medical devices and health information systems. Here is why our approach is different:
edgedin platform is designed to be used as off-the-shelf Web connectivity module that offers always-Web connectivity over any type of network. edgedin platform does not require medical device manufacturers to have any proprietary knowledge of edgedin underlying technology or the need to integrate any of its components with their products.
edgedin platform interoperates with any off-the-shelf Web component or Web technology that can be used to build Web applications and services. This allows medical device manufacturers to significantly reduce the cost of developing connected healthcare products and services by adopting the Web applications and services model and eliminate the need to integrate and customize 3rd party proprietary products.
edgedin technology enables medical device manufacturers to access data and information stored in the device directly if required without the need to transfer data from the device to a central server infrastructure. This minimizes the demand on data center infrastructure and leads to greater protection and security of device data and sensitive patient information. It also reduces the cost of such data center infrastructure.
edgedin platform enables interoperability through Web Services technology. The Web connectivity method enabled by edgedin technology allows for anywhere-Web Services. This allows medical devices to communicate and exchange information with other medical devices and health information systems in a much more cost effective and easy to adopt model.
edgedin platform allows for the development of loosely-coupled connected healthcare applications from connectivity solutions. The use of Web technologies to develop connected products and services lower the knowledge barriers associated with new technology solutions and 3rd party connectivity products.
