HxRefactored - APX Labs - Jeff Jenkins

  1. 1. Preparing Healthcare for Wearables Jeff Jenkins Co-Founder
  2. 2. Why we’re here… We’re going to talk about “the next big thing” in mobile enterprise technology… Smart Glasses. We’ll talk about: •  What smart glasses are •  Where they came from •  What they can do in healthcare •  Pitfalls of leveraging these devices
  3. 3. What exactly makes glasses “smart”? For all intents and purposes, think of smart glasses as having all of the same capabilities as a smart phone. Instead of looking at a screen, the user is simply looing through an optic. Ba#ery   CPU,  Memory,  Storage   and  Sensors   Camera   Microprojector   Op:c   Shield  (Op:onal)  
  4. 4. How did we get here? APX Labs was founded in 2010 when it began creating smart glasses applications for the U.S. Army years before the announcement of Google Glass. Headquartered outside of Washington D.C Developed the first facial biometric ID software for U.S. Army smart glasses – “Terminator Vision” Created the first smart glasses-based field medic solution for the U.S. Army’s telemedicine research command
  5. 5. What Can Glasses Do in Healthcare? Smart Glasses can provide a great deal of value wherever tasks being performed by hand can be made more efficient by having real-time, hands-free access to data that is contextually relevant. Just a few examples include…
  6. 6. Messages, Alerts, Workflows and Tasks
  7. 7. Data Integration and Sensor Monitoring    
  8. 8. Live “See What I See” Telepresence APX  Labs  proprietary  and  confiden4al  
  9. 9. Where’s the Catch? It’s a no-brainer that smart glasses can be extremely effective in the healthcare setting, but what are some of the challenges involved in leveraging this technology and the data that comes from it? •  Availability of software development talent •  Lack of physical safeguards by default •  New data means new security challenges •  The ever-present camera
  10. 10. Development Talent The Challenge Developing software for smart glasses is intrinsically different than developing on other mobile devices. Looking through rather than looking at the device creates new UX challenges. Making use of immersive glasses requires software development skills typically not present in the enterprise (3D Graphics Programming, Computer Vision, etc…)
  11. 11. HIPAA Compliance The Challenge The out of the box API’s used with smart glasses like Google Glass won’t meet HIPAA and other regulatory standards. Having your data leave your network and go to a publically used cloud infrastructure via the Mirror API or using Hangouts to stream video isn’t an option in healthcare.
  12. 12. New Data The Challenge The sensors on wearable devices like smart glasses can be used to gain new insight into the user’s action and the world around them, but this comes with a need to make sure that this data is captured and handled securely and appropriately.
  13. 13. The Camera The Challenge The cameras on smart glasses unlock powerful new uses for technology in healthcare, but also expose new surface area for potential links between PHI and identity.

  15. 15. Skylight A hardware-agnostic software platform that unlocks the power of smart glasses for desk-less workers who can benefit from access to real-time, contextually-relevant information that can be accessed hands-free. Skylight enables: Real-­‐:me,  hands-­‐on  collabora:on   through  “See  What  I  See”   technology.   Quick  and  efficient  loca:on  of   people,  places,  and  things  in  the   user’s  environment.   Access  to  workflow-­‐driven  alerts,   messages,  media,  and  reference   material.   Integra:on  with  any  and  all  exis:ng   back-­‐end  systems  through  a  rich   and  powerful  add-­‐in  API.  
  16. 16. How: Extending Physicians’ Reach The Problem A highly skilled physician’s time is extremely valuable. Unnecessary travel incurs more than the cost of fuel, airfare, or hotel accommodation. Needlessly moving doctors carries a massive opportunity cost as well. A Solution Keep physicians where their most effective and valuable, in other situations where their expertise is needed for rounds or consults, use smart glasses and Skylight’s “See What I See” technology to allow other doctors and nurses to proxy for the remote physician from the next room, across the city, or across the world.
  17. 17. How: Reduce Avoidable Readmissions The Problem Patients discharged from a medical facility are often confused about how to care for themselves at home. They fail to check in for required follow-ups and when something goes wrong, they come back to the hospital resulting in costly penalties for readmission under new healthcare regulations. A Solution Use Skylight’s “See What I See” technology on smart glasses to connect nurses with doctors during home visits, allowing the nurse to act as proxy for the doctor to assess the patient’s situation and aid in care. Leverage Skylight’s workflow-driven alerts and messaging to provide checks and balances to avoid mistakes at the original point of care that can result in later readmission.
  18. 18. How: Revolutionize Training The Problem Details of complex training scenarios are rarely retained in one pass and require later reference and practice in order to perfect. A Solution Use Skylight’s “See What I See” technology to: •  Record training experiences, from the trainee’s point of view for later playback and reference when they return to their institution. •  Provide remote training sessions where trainee’s can log into the instructor’s point of view to watch a procedure unfold. Use Skylight’s tasking, messaging, and media functionality to provide trainees with step-by-step instruction during training in a hands-on procedure.
  19. 19. How: Keep Doctors Hands-Free and Heads-Up The Problem In the course of performing their duties nurses, doctors, and surgeons are constantly referring to information presented on documentation and monitors surrounding the patient, but doing so requires them to take their eyes off the patient in the process. A Solution Use Skylight’s information panels to: •  Stream data from patient monitors directly into the caregiver’s line of sight •  Monitor patients more effectively by providing real-time access to monitor and camera feeds from anywhere
  20. 20. Summary Smart glasses enable hands-free access to relevant information that can help desk-less workers like doctors and nurses improve efficiency. Skylight enables smart glasses to talk with other software systems and provides valuable core functionality to form the foundation of an enterprise’s wearable technology ecosystem. Paired with the highly capable smart glasses platforms available today, Skylight can dramatically improve the quality of patient care and provide benefits like: •  Expansion of Physician’s Reach •  Reduction of Avoidable Readmissions •  Revolutionary Training Techniques •  Keeping Doctors Hands-Free and Heads- Up
  21. 21. How: Maximize Revenue The Problem With the caregiver laser-focused on the patient, services can often go under or un- coded and result in lost revenue for the institution. A Solution Use Skylight’s add-in API paired with tasking and messaging functionality to cross- reference services being provided with a patient’s EMR to highlight errors and provide real-time coding guidance at the point of care.
