Stream Technologies provides connectivity for connected healthcare devices

IoT Solution Provider, InVMA, has successfully completed the production of the Clarity Connected Care Platform for medical device manufacturer, GCE Healthcare .

IoT Solution Provider InVMA is pleased to announce that GCE Healthcare has launched Clarity™, a secure online platform that enables home oxygen providers to remotely monitor GCE's Zen-O™ range of portable oxygen concentrators (POCs). Thanks to the platform, GCE Healthcare can enable home oxygen providers, and provide patients and their families instant access to information from flow to oxygen purity, device location and battery life. In this way they can:-

  • Monitor device performance and carry out predictive maintenance
  • Optimise assets, ensuring patients have the right device
  • Help patients manage their adherence to prescription
  • Track device location using GPS and GSM technologies

InVMA developed Clarity for GCE Healthcare using PTC's ThingWorx® Industrial Innovation Platform and facilitated the delivery of the project by bringing together an ecosystem of partners.

The connectivity hardware within the Zen-O™ devices was designed by CoCom in the UK using Intel® Technology. Connectivity is provided by Stream Technologies' global roaming SIM and managed through their IoT-X™ platform. An additional security layer to protect patient confidentiality will be provided by Device Authority's KeyScaler™ platform enabling secure device onboarding, authentication and key rotation.

InVMA Managing Director, Patrick Nash commented: "This project is an important milestone in GCE and InVMA's history. Using PTC's Industrial Innovation Platform, ThingWorx, we have significantly reduced GCE's time to market while accommodating changes resulting from direct customer feedback. Our Agile methodology has accommodated several iterations and together positioned GCE in the market with a superior product."

Data obtained from the devices will not only improve patient care, but significantly improve the operational effectiveness and efficiency of asset management and field service. The project is expected to positively impact on GCE Healthcare's service quality and sales of the Zen-O™ range of devices.

GCE Healthcare Group Product Manager, Donald Oleforo commented: "This project has moved GCE into the world of connected healthcare with new services and revenue streams based on a secure and scalable platform. It has significantly improved our offering to our customers, the patients we serve, and their clinicians. True partners through this journey, InVMA have an open style and don't rest until the product is right. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them as we extend into other areas of connected products and operations."

Tern Plc Director and InVMA Chairman Bruce Leith commented: "InVMA's relationship with GCE is very important and we look forward to supporting GCE as they scale in the connected medical device market and together explore the other sectors in their portfolio."
