Humetrix will also demo mHealth apps SOS QRandTENSIO, which have been selected by National Health Service (NHS) for a large regional deployment as part of the NHS Innovation Test Beds program. The program is designed to test technology innovations on a large regional scale with the goal of modernizing how the NHS delivers care. Seven Test Bed sites were selected from 33 NHS regional applicants, including the Sheffield City Region where Humetrix is taking part.
TENSIO is designed for anyone who wants to manage his or her high blood pressure. By integrating data from self-monitoring devices with the patient’s own medical record data and an onboard expert system for personal coaching, TENSIO uses a patient’s smartphone and Apple Watch to send alerts and notifications so they better manage their prescribed medication, dietary and exercise regimen. The app also allows them to review their progress toward their blood pressure control goals with their doctors.
SOS QR is an award-winning smartphone application for emergency preparedness, designed to keep individuals safe wherever they are. A globalized mobile application, SOS QR runs on both Android and iOS phones and the Apple Watch. It is available in multiple languages: English, French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Portuguese. In addition to making key medical information – conditions, allergies and medications – available to any medical professional in the local language, the application also features an “SOS Button” that users can easily press to call for help in an emergency situation.
