The next opportunity for wearables beyond fitness and the evolution of secure, continuous health monitoring.
The benefits and opportunity to patients, carers and hospitals to move health monitoring into the home are significant. Continuous monitoring in the home environment provides the quantity and quality of data to allow trending and to spot underlying issues that may otherwise be missed with ad hoc testing in the hospital setting. This is not a new phenomenon and even consumer technology companies such as Apple are pursuing this through ECG monitoring on the Apple Watch already. However, one challenge leads to another – how does the system ensure that data from a patient is truly theirs and has not been corrupted with data from another patient? At B-Secur, we are exploring some of these more obscure challenges that could really unlock the potential of the future
