MIR Insights

Wireless health using Spirotel and Qualcomm Life 2net hub.

We live in an era in which everything's connected. Even our health and wellbeing are benefiting from wireless technology which, through remote control, enables prevention measures to be takenwith a view to reducing relapses, hospital stays and traditional medical examinations. As a result, the associated costs are also reduced.

This is why spirotel, one of the latest MIR products, has been integrated with 2net Hub from Qualcomm Life. It is a digital health platform based on wireless technology that reads the datacollected by various medical devices used at home and transfers itin clouds to remote medicine portals where it can be checked by health care operators.

The data collected and saved by spirotel is automatically and rapidly acquired via Bluetooth by 2net Hub installed in the patient's home, and made available at a Qualcomm Life cloud-based data centre so that it can be shared by health care service companies or other partners.

The 2net platform provides universal interoperability capable of aggregating data flows coming from several medical devices and, together with the underlying infrastructure, is designed incompliance with directive 95/46/EC so that the data can be saved and transferred securely within the European Union.

The data transfer system uses encryption methods and ensures a high level of security and reliability.

Everything is done easily, quickly and cheaply.
Without requiring any manual skills from the patient.
No keys. No problems.

spirotel works like a satellite perfectly integrated in the 2netplatform, thus forming a part of a network that has the patient at the centre and reaches a long chain of stakeholders, health careoperators, pharmaceutical and research companies such as CROs(Contract Research Organizations), home health care and service companies, remote medicine call centres, telecommunication companies and connectivity service providers, medical device manufacturers, App developers, etc.

Just under a billion people in the world suffer from at least one chronic disease. For this reason – which is closely linked to the continuous aging of the population – the treatment of chronic diseases accounts for most health care expenditure, reaching a peak of 85% in the USA. Every health care system in the world is obliged to accept the great challenges of progress without losing control of costs.

At last there is some good news in this setting, characterized by a continuous worsening trend, with soaring costs that seem impossible to control and explosive debts. For the first time,wireless connectivity cuts costs, technological barriers, installationtimes and the problems that stopped its spread in the past for many years.

Due to the sustainable availability of user-friendly digital medical instruments, aggregated in converging technologies and connected to the health care operators, the patient can at last exercise his right to wellbeing by mobilizing health care to receive personalized advice. An idea of health that is now inevitable.
