Arrayent for Remote Health Monitoring
Arrayent Health provides the simplest and least expensive solution to wirelessly connect health monitoring devices in the home to your own personal health records on the internet.
Benefits to Consumers
A growing number of patients are being asked by their doctors to record their vital sign readings daily. That typically means writing them on paper or typing them into a spreadsheet - which is error prone and a bothersome chore all too often avoided. Yes, there are software and hardware methods to automatically record your readings, but they typically involve complicated and technically challenging set ups, inconvenient user interfaces, and/or cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to deploy. Arrayent Health enables a better solution. Set up is a simple as it gets – just plug it in and it works. Readings can be taken from anywhere in the house - no need to bring your health device within reach of the gateway. And, cost is a fraction of similar solutions.
Benefits to Families and Caregivers
Everyone wants to live independently in their own home for as long as possible. However, as one ages and becomes more susceptible to chronic medical conditions, that option often becomes a luxury rather than an affordable everyday occurrence. A growing number of care givers are concerned that their aging loved ones won’t be able to continue to live quite so independently in the near future. Arrayent Health enables a complete yet inexpensive solution. In addition to vital sign monitoring, Arrayent Health can also be used with intelligent presence/motion sensors deployed throughout the home, which learn the occupant’s behavior and notify a care giver or family member when that daily pattern is broken. For example, if there is normally activity in the kitchen every morning by 7:00 AM and one day there’s no activity by 8:00 AM (now out of normal behavior) a message can be sent to caring family members, enabling them to check in without becoming intrusive. Alerts can also be sent if monitored vital sign readings are not within predetermined and specified ranges.
Benefits to disease management service providers
Traditional telemedicine has relied on any number of problematic network connection schemes: dial up phone, USB Cable into a PC and then to the Internet, and even Bluetooth connectivity to a telemedicine gateway or cell phone. These connection strategies require the patient to be located near the connection device. Patients want to take their readings at a comfortable place in their home. For example, it is more convenient to take a BPM measurement by their night stand, weigh themselves in the bathroom or take their glucose reading or medications in the kitchen. Secondly, Bluetooth paring and PC software undoubtedly require costly customer support to continue to perform flawlessly over time. And thirdly, data cell phones and telemedicine gateway products will add $100+ in hardware cost s to a home deployment.
The Amazon Kindle™ has demonstrated that a plug and play wireless connectivity solution greatly reduces consumer transaction friction. It follows that wirelessly connected health monitoring devices, which automatically send their readings to the internet, without connecting a cable or moving the device in close proximity to the communications gateway can increase patient-data collection practice. This practice results in the development of positive and habitual health behavior patterns. In addition, Arrayent’s gateway technology enables costs that are a fraction of cell phone or telemedicine gateway hardware. Arrayent’s ease of use reduces customer support calls, and since patients are more likely to take their own readings, the costs associated with follow-up nurse calls are greatly reduced.
