2.1 Connected Health
INFANT operates in a number of areas of connected health: connecting connecting the mother to the hospital in the antenatal space; connecting the newborn in the neonatal intensive care unit with the clinician, wherever they may be. We are building a fully integrated platform for collecting blood pressure readings from expectant mothers at home, to provide real-time information to healthcare providers.
Additionally, INFANT, in conjunction with industry partners IBM, have developed a distributed, cloud based platform for streaming physiological signals in real-time from the NICU. The cloud servers provide always on, always up to date algorithms for monitoring the patients’ state of health. For example, automatic monitoring of EEG data to trigger real-time alarms when seizures occur.
Web-based services developed within INFANT provide clinicians with access to remote monitoring and automatically generated alerts, ensuring that newborns receive the best possible care, 24/7, even when expert clinicians are not on-call.
