Wellteq unveils beta production of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) HealthHub

iomtWellteq Digital Health has launched beta production of its new Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) HealthHub and API as a service offering, targeting a commercial release later this year

The HealthHub is an entirely new IoMT platform developed by Wellteq, which can connect, manage, and monitor any standardised device using edge computing. Edge computing is part of a distributed computing topology in which information processing is located close to the physical location where things and people connect with the network. 

Edge computing augments and expands the possibilities of today’s primarily centralised, hyper scale cloud model and supports the systemic evolution and deployment of the IoMT and new application types, enabling next-generation digital health applications. The HealthHub also offers contingency to cloud server processing in the case of a network outage.

The HealthHub has been built upon Wellteq’s next generation “Unified API” which allows for secure remote monitoring and management and enables third party integrations with all aspects of the HealthHub and API, such as Amazon’s Prime Health, Google Health and Microsoft Health with its’ newly acquired Nuance natural language processing (NLP) capability, allowing the HealthHub to be an integral value add for both new and existing ePHI systems. (ePHI, or electronic Protected Health Information, is any protected health information that is created, stored, transmitted, or received in any electronic format or media).

Wellteq’s Unified API will service Wellteq’s client applications as well as the HealthHub and other IoMT (and IoT) hardware devices and will also be delivered as a standalone “API as a Service” product. All the features and functionality delivered through Wellteq’s client applications and hardware will be offered as standalone services for clients and partners to integrate with their applications, services, and systems. This includes IoMT metrics capture, processing, and automation, wellness tracking with personalised digital coaching, reward scheme management, social activities and interactions, news feeds and more.

A powerful eight-core processor, large memory footprint, and a versatile machine-learning secondary processor enable the hub to handle a wide variety of services, including NLP and auto-updated training models for AI. To best support the wide variety of IoMT devices, Wellteq has designed a custom wireless chipset, enabling connectivity with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, and, optionally, cellular. Alongside the wireless chipset is a completely customised and optimised firmware stack that helps manage the multitude of wireless protocols, allowing the HealthHub to support 500+ connected IoMT and/or IoT devices simultaneously. In comparison, most digital health device deployments currently rely on the user’s mobile phone for connectivity with a small number of devices.
