KUALA LUMPUR (April 14, 2017) – One the biggest challenges in healthcare sector around the world is to reduce the costs of healthcare without impacting the quality of health of the people. Both I and Dr. Gopi made a courtesy visit to GetDoc‘s office to meet a group of young people that uses technology in enhancing healthcare system in Malaysia.
GetDoc had a vision: “To add value and enrich lives through mobility solutions and deliver better healthcare experience.” They do this by designing innovative, people-friendly, cutting edge, internet-enabled personal healthcare devices and mobile applications that connect to the cloud – so that these products can help more people to monitor their own state of health independently and conscientiously.
We had a chance to see their Smart Health demo using IOT devices called Hippo Swing, Hippo Jazz, Hippo Tap and Hippo Jive. These are devices that track your steps, calories, sleeping patterns, blood pressure, weight, body fat and others. All the measurements are captured through the owner’s smartphone and stored in the cloud. We are quite impressed with the demo.
We also took the opportunity to demo the strengths of FAVORIOT platform in managing an IoT project and handling multiple streams of data from various sensors. Thus, assisting IoT developers to reduce their development time and go-to-market.
Thanks to Jerry Hang, Founder, and CEO of GetDoc Malaysia and Keith Yeoh, Lead Product Development & Technology.
