Elcam Medical’s Innovation Strategy: Gaining Productivity with the IoT

Elcam Medical partners with IoT Startup Atomation and proves that even after decades in the medical industry, it still remains ahead of innovation.

In the last few years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has progressed from a fascinating vision, to a must have asset for cost and operational efficiency.  In healthcare, wireless technologies are allowing doctors to monitor patients from anywhere at any time. Analysis of accessible data is empowering the therapist-patient relationship, with ongoing communication and tailored personalized treatments. Clearly, data driven decision making reduces costs due to less malfunctions, but moreover, the technology is actually much cheaper than traditional local solutions. Elcam Medical, one of the leading Israeli medical companies, identified the potential and partnered with IoT startup Atomation to develop cutting edge solutions.

Elcam Medical provides high quality disposable flow control medical devices and solutions for the OEM industry. The tech forward company is saying so long to expensive local monitoring solutions and revolutionizing its medical system with the IoT. Up until today, sensors in a hospital room were connected to a wired monitor that not only cost thousands of dollars, but also saved data locally. Nowadays, the monitor is being replaced by a wireless compact small box that contains all needed sensors and uploads data to a cloud platform. Thus, data can be accessed from anywhere at any time, and surprisingly enough, this device costs only tens of dollars.

Data from multiple sensors deployed in different locations is gathered in one cloud database for rich analytics leading to actionable insights. Once analyzed on the cloud, the data reaches doctors and patients and real time alerts are sent to their mobile phones. As large amounts of data are collected and utilized, the given question is “is this secure?”. Elcam Medical and Atomation refused to take risks and tackled this challenge with security layers on each part of the platform – hardware, software and cloud. In addition, with Atomation’s cloud API, data can be transferred to third party databases that are aligned with all medical standards.

Atomation’s mobile SDK enables seamless integration with various sensors. Mobile apps are built on the SDK to control devices and present data, and the mobile also serves as the gateway to the cloud. According to Guy Weitzman, Atomation’s CEO: “We’ve crafted a robust, agnostic and scalable platform. We understand that the industry is dynamic, therefore we want to give our customers flexibility, letting them expand and adjust sensors and features at any time without facing heavy expenses.”

Slowly but surely, the full potential of IoT is being realized. Intelligent use of data is improving our health and overall productivity. Being able to consult with doctors remotely about the most important thing – our well being is so crucial, that it’s strange to think we live without it. Only companies who will take advantage of this revolution will be able to provide the best service and eventually dominate the market.

How Can the IoT Give Your Business a Competitive Edge?

By Matthew Cordasco, MyCrowd QA

There are numerous ways to get an edge over your competitors, from offering better pricing to making a higher quality product. One way that’s increasingly interesting is by putting the IoT, or Internet of Things, to work to enhance your business processes or final product.

Over the last decade, the Internet of Things has gone from a technologist’s dream into a reality for tens of millions of people. If you use an Internet-controlled alarm, lighting system or heating system, you’re part of it. If not, the chances are very good that you soon will be.

The smart security system: IoT is IN, intruders are OUT

Home Automation is a major trend in IoT, and sure, controlling the color of your lights or the temperature from anywhere is cool, but there is one specific area that really caught our attention and out shined the others. Our home is our shelter, the place where we should feel safest in. There is nothing more disturbing than finding your stuff scattered all over the place after a burglary.

New IoT technologies are bringing safety back to the streets fighting intruders bravely. Users are enjoying a new sense of certainty and control by tracking security features from anywhere at anytime. The new homes are armed with sensors that are connected to an alarm and local authorities. The sensors can send alerts to the owner’s mobile device, take action and be activated from afar.  Continue reading “The smart security system: IoT is IN, intruders are OUT”
