11 Health is Proud to Launch in India

Introduces the Ostom-i™ Alert and Hospital App to Apollo Hospital

11 Health has successfully initiated an approved clinical trial at the Apollo Hospital, Chennai, India, by using our dedicated hospital app and connected sensor device the Ostom-i™ Alert on patients who have had stoma surgery. This landmark clinical feasibility trial has created many ‘firsts’ of its kind in India. Firstly, by introducing hi-tech wearable computing to help doctors get vital information about their patients’ remotely via Bluetooth® technology.

Secondly, by enabling a hospital system to adopt technology that prevents cross-infection, by creating a remote access to patient data, thus eliminating the need for a ’human’ interface.

Following the successful trial the device will shortly be available to all hospitals and patients. Check out our website for the latest updates over the coming week.

Dr. Anil Vaidya, along with Dr. Anand Ramamurthy were the chief investigators on this trial. Dr. Vaidya had the following comment to make,”wearable computing is the order of the day, and this product does what the box says. It makes life for patient’s with a stoma not only manageable, but introduces a level of self-confidence in them. The Apollo Hospitals have always been the forerunners in application of newer technology and was pleased to be able to run the trial there.”

11 Health is A CONNECTED MEDICAL DEVICE COMPANY. Connected in the sense that all of our patented devices are wireless, Bluetooth enabled and send secure real-time data to most mobile devices including smartphones, tablets and watches. Data can be stored locally or in the cloud and then shared with the clinicians and nurses that look after you. We create an elegant and seamless experience between the hardware and the proprietary apps designed by patients, physicians and nurses in cooperation with our engineering teams.

I have just spent the day at Connected Health in Boston listening to how the future of healthcare is all about connect care. I have heard from designers, from venture capital firms, from social media and wearables experts all explaining what their role is in the future and how healthcare is changing. It has been truly fascinating and stimulating for the majority of time interspersed with the occasional piece of nonsense that every conference has.

Vinod Kholsa stole the show for me today with his interview. He was the first person to talk about the role of patients as early adopters and as change agents. He said how he gets incredibly excited by people who can display enormous passion for changing the healthcare landscape. He identified patients as equal partners in this new connected healthcare world. Listening to him it dawned on me that no one else to that point had highlighted the role of the patient as an innovator. I had sat through a great venture capital panel where they had identified a bias towards investing in people from within the healthcare family. Healthcare Professionals and C Suite Management is whom they meant. No mention of patients.

Tomorrow I have the privilege of sharing the stage with three amazing patients in a panel chaired by Dr Danny Sands someone I am really keen to finally meet in person. http://symposium.connected-health.org/agenda/panel-patient-activists-problem-solvers We will talk about patients who have developed solutions. It ties in perfectly with the role I have taken on as Entrepreneur In Residence for Stanford’s Medicine X programme. Within that residency I am focusing on patients as entrepreneurs. We are starting to put together a really exciting module to assist any patient who wants to create something from his or her own experience. More will follow over the next few weeks.

As a pre cursor to that I am delighted to be launching the new hashtag #PTEntpr. This has been validated by Symplur and will now feature across everything that Ipost about patients as innovators. It does not matter how big or small the idea I hope to try and build a community of patients who are changing the healthcare landscape. So please share your ideas with me, share your stories and don’t forget the hashtag #PTEntpr.
