At a glance

We built a scalable HIPAA and GDPR compliant cloud platform for real time monitoring and analysis of breathing patterns. First end-users were doctors and healthcare practitioners attending to patients with severe cases of COVID-19.

Rest of the Story

Client Profile

MyAir is a medical device company that develops non-invasive respiratory sensors.

Situation

The MyAir team is building a cost effective and accurate solution for long term remote patient management for home and hospital settings, focusing on remote sleep and chronic respiratory disease monitoring.

When the pandemic broke out, the company pivoted its efforts to help combat the COVID virus. The client wanted to help optimize the use of limited resources such as ventilators as well as medical assistance to serve high risk individuals; and make some necessary advancements in the field of Telemedicine.

The client’s objective was to direct all its resources on providing actionable therapeutic insight into acute respiratory episodes related to COVID-19.

Action

By collaborating with our client, we pinpointed the key performance indicators of the project: speed, platform security, data reliability and accuracy.

Speed: clinical trials with patients in the ICU were underway and doctors using the devices needed a platform they could use to monitor their patients live, remotely and reliably

Security: we are working with sensitive patient data, where safety of personal information is key

Reliability: unscheduled downtimes are high-risk when doctors are relying on the signal to monitor patients

Accuracy: there is no room for error when generating biological metrics that will guide doctors' decisions

We Built
  • an automated HIPAA & GDPR compliant infrastructure. The system is robust, fast, and scalable, and stores & processes patient data with the highest security and privacy standards.

  • a time series processing & real time analytics platform. It processes historical data, and real time signals, and allows for Live calculations to get the most out of the available information.

  • insightful and powerful dashboards for doctors to monitor real time & historical breath patterns and biological calculations.

Impact

Within our first two week timeframe, the client was able to prove the real medical value to doctors and professionals in the field, in times of dire need to come up with new solutions.

Thanks to the speed and reliability of the delivery, the client was able to accelerate the device release and started clinical trials in 2 hospitals (in the USA and Italy) - 15 patients, going up to 50 during May 2020.
