Bits In Glass Launches Smart Home Health Platform

According to a recent announcement, Bits In Glass (BIG), a software consulting firm serving clients across North America, is launching Manage My Care, a smart home health platform built on Appian.

The platform is designed to act as a central portal for health information and support IoT device integration with off-the-shelf devices such as blood pressure cuffs. The company says these integrations allow patients to take physiological readings at home and have the data automatically synced to the platform, giving care providers access to real-time patient data without the need to have the patient visit a clinic.

“Manage My Care was originally tailored to the needs of a specific medical use case, renal care, but we soon realized that it could support care for a wide range of patient situations that require continuous monitoring of patient vitals,” said David Hauser, Founding Partner and VP, Finance, Bits In Glass. “In a nutshell, the platform integrates health care data in a single platform that is accessible by both the patient and care provider, making it possible for a remote care team to gain access to the most up-to-date health data about their patients while also providing the same transparency to the patient.”

Manage My Care provides instant insight into key data and events with alerts that support a proactive approach to requesting information from patients, while simultaneously flagging incidents and key data points for care providers to review and respond to as needed. Based on the rules that the patient, their doctor or their care team have configured in Manage My Care, the system can trigger additional actions such as email, mobile or Slack alerts, and even activate the patient’s camera so that a physician can remotely view the patient in real time.

Bits In Glass recently demoed this technology with real-time blood pressure data at the HIMSS Conference. The Manage My Care app is available on the Appian App Market and is a low-code, platform that can be configured to meet clinician specific requirements and can get up and running within weeks.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
