Guildford, UK 16 October 2014. Eseye are pleased to announce that we are working alongside Philips Healthcare, supplying reliable Multi-IMSI AnyNet connectivity for their TeleHealth platform – The Philips Motiva. Philips Motiva connects patients with chronic conditions such as: Chronic Heart Failure, Diabetes Mellitus, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), to their healthcare providers, allowing them to live comfortably in their own homes without any worries.
The interactive TeleHealth platform is expertly designed to allow people with chronic conditions to be monitored from the comfort of their own home, empowering them to manage their illnesses with flexibility. The system itself is intuitive, with the ability to be tailored to suit the individual requirements of a patient. The application can monitor the patient’s weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation in the blood and can also be used to answer a questionnaire.
“Eseye are proud to be involved with Philips Motiva. The value of empowering a patient to monitor and manage their condition from the comfort of their own home, while maximising their quality of life is huge. Connectivity is critical and it was a pleasure working with the team at Philips Healthcare to deliver a managed solution.”
Paul Tarsey, Eseye
The Multi-IMSI AnyNet SIM was the ideal solution for the Philips Motiva, delivering an entirely mobile network-independent global connectivity solution. Much like the Motiva itself, the AnyNet is all about flexibility and freedom. With its ability to connect to multiple networks through multiple IMSIs, the AnyNet ensures the Philips Motiva maintains reliable connectivity and therefore allows patients to be monitored consistently with confidence.
"Working with Eseye and using their Multi-IMSI AnyNet SIM means we can now offer a roaming solution capable of connecting to all UK & potentially European networks using a single SIM, allowing us to manage the rollout of new Motiva Telehealth installations with confidence. We have already seen a reduction in failed installations and callouts due to poor network coverage, reducing repeat visits and in turn saving costs. Previously we had not considered a roaming solution due to fixed data plans and high over usage charges. Using Eseye’s AnyNet SIM broke down these barriers and gave us simple and scalable pricing. Working with Eseye's support engineers we have been able to optimise our data protocols within our application, reducing our costs by 25% while delivering a superior solution and customer experience."
Geoff Hayllar, Philips Healthcare
Philips Motiva provides support to patients and helps promote patient self-care and behaviour change, meaning overall better health. The Philips Motiva can send motivational messages from caregivers that help encourage healthy lifestyle choices for diet and exercise, so that the longer the patient is monitored by the system, the more likely they are to make better choices that impact their overall health. The system also provides feedback about vital signs measurements, as well as informational videos and guides relevant to their healthcare needs, helping a patient learn and track their progress toward personal health goals.
Connectivity plays a vital role in keeping these monitoring systems up and running, and with the help of M2M technology patient data is easily transferred from home to hospital and back.
