Digital technologies are driving a new generation of telehealth

March 1, 2016

"Digital technologies are significantly expanding telehealth’s scope and adoption. Digital telehealth has gone beyond the healthcare provider industry and has attracted interest from the retail, life insurance, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications industries. And it’s attracting health consumers interested in wellness, health promotion and disease prevention. Digital technologies have been key game changers for traditional telehealth. While mHealth has been associated with telehealth for a while now, its role is expanding significantly with expansion of the Internet of things (IOT) into healthcare. The volume of data generated, especially with expansion of telehealth into the wellness space and the social media listening, is projected to be huge. This white paper explores the tremendous possibilities for advanced analytics to make medical research more meaningful, create more robust evidence based medicine and more individualized behavioral interventions. Most importantly, how it can make care delivery and clinical outcomes are expected more effective, efficient, cheaper and accessible when digital technologies are used in telehealth services."

Empowering DSOs to secure the Smart Grid

whitePaper | February 6, 2020

As the world’s growing need for energy meets the power of the Internet of Things, the traditional energy marketplace is rapidly transforming. Millions of meters and energy assets are connected and digitized each year, providing enormous benefits to the entire ecosystem: real time tracking of energy production and consumption data, optimized load balancing systems, streamlined operations and billing systems to name a few. As connectivity expands and the landscape is digitalizing, new distributed energy resources (DERs) and stakeholders are able to integrate into and expand the grid. DERs offer non-carbon resources that improve the energy sector’s overall carbon footprint, a key benefit for everyone.

Transforming Endpoints with Artificial Intelligence

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

There has never been so much compute power available in IoT devices - now is the time to be designing and deploying true intelligence in IoT endpoints. Devices which are aware of their environment are capable of adding huge value to the data they collect and the services which they enable. This paper explores how new and emerging technology can enable your devices to see, hear and feel what is going on, interpret what they sense, take autonomous actions and generate real, trusted, valued data for the cloud. Recent developments in hardware and software will enable a step change in the capability of resource-constrained endpoint platforms, allowing developers to build vision, voice and vibration capability, coupled with genuine intelligence at the endpoint.
