A home hub that syncs your health devices and an app that stores all your medical records. Innovative stories from the world of wellness.
Each week PSFK.com with its partner Boehringer Ingelheim brings you a snapshot of five innovative ideas that are reshaping the health care industry. This week’s innovations include a home hub that syncs your health devices and an app that stores all your medical records.
Home Hub Syncs Personal Health Devices And Data Homelink is a wireless home device that serves as a hub for receiving, storing, and transmitting patient-generated healthcare data. The tablet-sized touch screen device can receive data from a user’s digital or wireless weight scales, fitness tracker, pulse oximeters, blood glucose monitors, or just about any other wearable health device. Data is received either via a wire with a USB direct connection, or wirelessly from devices equipped with either the Bluetooth or Low-Energy Bluetooth communications capabilities. The Homelink empower patients to self-test at home and offers a seamless way to store necessary data for easy access, and allow it to be sent to their doctors for professional analysis.
