Elyxor Approach and Solution

  • Elyxor participated in a discovery project with the device manufacturer to define next generation functionality.
  • We then developed and designed the architectural approach for the new solution, including close coordination with the device development teams. The ‘final mile’ of IoT is the most complex.
  • Leveraged UX design expertise to change how patients and doctors access data.
  • Led the application development of the new product, building a multi-platform solution set.
  • Elyxor used an Agile Development approach and leveraged devops practices to rapidly deliver functionality.

Results Achieved

  • Tens of thousands of devices are now enabled to synchronize data and treatment history, improving care for the patient.
  • Multiple applications that worked in coordination with each other were developed, including real-time monitoring solutions for clinics, web enabled physician applications for post analysis, and web, iOS, & Android patient applications.
  • The concept of a care team surrounding a patient was created, allowing medical staff and caregivers to see information about the patient in question based on roles, accessing data from a centralized repository in the cloud.
  • The platform is providing the most sophisticated clinical data in a cloud offering within the market but in a User Experience that is modern and intuitive.
  • The patient can set goals for their use of the device to encourage better health.
  • The physician can annotate treatment information, share information with doctors in the care team, and set thresholds for alerts as they monitor patient health.
  • Future capabilities will allow instructions to be sent to the device to change settings based on a doctor’s recommendation.
  • Treatment is transitioning from a monthly doctor visit to a daily exchange of information.
