– Sony unveils mSafety mobile health platform in the U.S. for the first time at Connected Health Conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
– mSafety platform combines a programmable wearable with a backend solution so any organization can easily build unique, scalable, and secure mobile health and remote monitoring applications.
Sony, today announced it will preview its mSafety mobile health platform in the U.S. for the first time today at Connected Health Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. Sony’s mSafety platform – which includes a connected wearable device (wristwatch) and a secure backend solution – is a B2B solution that provides partners with a ready-made platform on which they can develop and scale their own unique mobile health applications or remote health monitoring solutions.
With the market for connected health and wellness apps and devices expected to grow to more than $600 billion in a few years, businesses both from inside and outside of healthcare are eager to capitalize. But, the cost of developing a fleet of proprietary healthcare wearables, along with managing them via a secure cloud backend solution are huge barriers to market growth.
Value-Add Remote Monitoring Health Services
Whether it’s for people living with chronic health conditions, like diabetes or cardiovascular disease, or for at-risk seniors living in their own homes, mSafety platform partners will have everything they need to build new, value-add remote monitoring health services. The platform combines a low-complexity connected wearable and a secure back-end solution to ensure bi-directional data flows seamlessly
