«The Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) on Monday revealed four toolkits to help healthcare and life science organizations use data from sensors like wearables and remote patient monitoring systems at scale.»
«The four toolkits are based on resources derived from the society’s Sensor Data Integrations project, which includes organizations like Amazon Web Services, Oracle, the Moffitt Cancer Center, Takeda and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.»
«DiMe CEO Jennifer Goldsack told MobiHealthNews the first kit offers a logical data architecture that’s meant to serve as a blueprint for healthcare organizations as they build out their digital tools. It includes reference architectures that show how it can be successfully implemented, best practices for privacy and security, and a design tool that lets users map out data flow.»
«The other toolkits offer a database of standards in different regions and for different uses, resources to help organizations determine their capacity and staffing, and an implementation toolkit with a quick start guide and priorities calculator.»
«Goldsack said using sensors for patient care isn’t necessarily a technology challenge, but it is an implementation one. The field is still relatively new, and there are a variety of point solutions that won’t easily scale.»
