i-Home


With our healthcare system undergoing  major changes and transformation, the Intelligent Health Association and the RFID in Healthcare Consortium  showcased the latest in technologies and solutions that make our homes safer and a primary location to deliver care and patient education. The remote care devices and “smart” home technologies you will see in the Intelligent Medical Home™ exhibit video (HIMSS14, Orlando) will be a sampling of the explosion of innovation that is happening in the healthcare “ecosystem”. The remote care devices and “smart” home technologies you will see in the Intelligent Medical Home™ exhibit video will be a sampling of the explosion of innovation that is happening in the healthcare “ecosystem”. Here you will also see the latest “smart” televisions and other appliances that will eventually become our home health stations and smart phone applications that allow synchronous and asynchronous, secure communication between patients and their providers/caregivers. Many of these solutions are cloud-based and software-as-a service products that allow for simpler deployment with less complexity and lower costs. It is important to recognize the active role the patient plays in our exhibit and how they are engaged in their own healthcare. Educating patients and their family members, and caregivers through these connected devices will improve their activation and their own personal accountability to make wise, more informed decisions regarding their health conditions and allow the best possible care we can provide.
