Humetrix to Demo mHealth Apps iBlueButton, SOSQR and TENSIO at CES Unveiled Paris
Award-Winning Apps Give Consumers the Knowledge to Drive Healthcare Decisions in Consultation with Their Doctors
Paris, October 21, 2015 - Advances in mobile health technologies have made us all smarter healthcare consumers. At CES Unveiled, Humetrix will demonstrate its suite of award-winning apps – SOS QR, TENSIO and iBlueButton – that allow consumers to become the central hub in their own caregiving team, by arming anyone with their own most important health data. Humetrix will be demonstrating all three of its applications.
SOS QR makes it easy to alert emergency contacts of your location and need for help with the touch of a button. And when you can’t call for help yourself, the app makes it easy for EMTs, ER doctors, or Good Samaritans to immediately access your health information and send an automatic alert to your emergency contacts. SOS QR works in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese and provides automatic data translation so that your emergency information is displayed in the language of the country of the emergency responder scanning the QR code.
TENSIO is designed for anyone who wants to manage his or her high blood pressure. By integrating data from self-monitoring devices through Apple HealthKit with the patient’s own medical record data and an onboard expert system for personal coaching, TENSIO uses a patient’s iPhone and Apple Watch to guide them so they better manage their prescribed treatment, including dietary and exercise regimens, and allows them to review their progress toward their blood pressure control goals with their doctors.
iBlueButton allows millions of Americans and their family caregivers to receive, update, store and share their health records, securely on their smartphone or tablet.
“When it comes to our health, knowledge truly is power,” said Dr. Bettina Experton, Humetrix’s CEO and member of the CEA Health and Fitness Board. “We’ve designed a suite of apps that focus on providing patients and their caregiving team with the information they need to receive and render the right care. At Humetrix, we believe very strongly that patients must be given the tools that empower them to manage their care and partner with their physicians to make the best healthcare choices.”
Humetrix offers its applications in Europe for consumers through the App Store, Google Play, and white-labeled versions for government and non-governmental organizations through Humetrix Europe, Ltd, based in London.
Humetrix has pioneered the development of innovative consumer-centered mobile solutions over the past 15 years, which have been deployed around the world.
