KnowNow is one of just a few companies at the forefront of dealing with data in a manner that is suitable to the IoT – Clive Longbottom, July 2015

There is an excellent article published on ComputerWeekly.com today written by Clive Longbottom. Clive came to IBM Hursley last week on the day that our BeatHouse demonstration was installed in their IoT laboratory.

As well as looking at the demonstrations we had a wide ranging discussion about everything from the growth in requirements for data expertise to the implications for security and privacy.

The Opportunity

The IoT industry has an interesting opportunity at the moment to reduce the cost burden on the NHS. Connected devices and in particular the growth of wearables gives us an opportunity to improve efficiency in every stage of the process from initial presentation to the GP through diagnosis, cure and after-care.

Our BeatHouse project is designed to be modular. Health data can easily be collected from home based CO2 sensors, fall detectors and wearable devices such as heart-rate monitors. By building a pattern of behaviour over time we will be able to alert the health professionals when that normal pattern is broken.
