Dell Boomi, Nalta and digitalAngel Partner on Future of Health

Dell Boomi, a provider of cloud integration and workflow automation software, has announced that the company’s technology is powering an Internet of Things (IoT) healthcare platform from Dutch start-up digitalAngel.

Working with local partner, Nalta, digitalAngel has adopted Boomi integration platform as a service (iPaaS) to launch a pilot project focusing on intelligent mattresses, in which sensory data is shared with nurses, caregivers and healthcare staff in real-time to provide instantaneous and round-the-clock monitoring of patients.

The smart mattress will also in the near future be able to automatically adjust a patient’s sleeping position, reacting to how well or badly a person is sleeping, according to the release.

“Technology is transforming healthcare on a large scale at an extremely fast pace, and our unique vision is to create a single platform to combine multiple IoT and biometric sensors in ways that offer the maximum benefit to caregivers, patients and their families alike,” said Peter de Lange, managing director, digitalAngel. “Importantly, we are one of the first IoT platforms to have fully approved medical device classification. We are building the universal platform for the healthcare industry of the future.”

Smart care products and new hardware innovations in the healthcare sector powered by biosensors, from smart beds through to artificially intelligent MedTech machines are set to proliferate in the coming years, all of which will be able to use digitalAngel as a single, central connected platform.

“This initial intelligent mattress project is a useful microcosm that helps to demonstrate the huge potential of the digitalAngel platform,” said Ian Currie, head of EMEA, Dell Boomi. “Data-driven healthcare powered by multiple connected biometric sensors is clearly the future of smart healthcare. And we are proud to be digitalAngel’s technology partner helping to create the IoT healthcare platform of the future.”
