    • GETTING TO OUTCOMES Outcomes Intervention KnowledgeContext Information Data Understanding
    • REVELATION…WE KNOW OUR CUSTOMERS• It’s all in the data…big data!• Example: Analysis of bed sensor data can reveal a lot about the sleep quality…and health• Similar inferences can be made across a spectrum of routine daily activities• We can tell when things are not quite right 11
    • WHAT’S THE POINT? • We capture a lot of data. Making sense of that data and translating it into truly actionable information (i.e. via “big data” artificial intelligence) will improve outcomes and lower care costs. 13
    • MAKING SENSE OF DATA Compare Capture Estimate Extract Behavior Trigger Update Raw ADL Behavior Events to Alerts or Behavior Events States Events Behavior Reports Model Model• Translate sensor data into behavioral events• Profile these behavior events over time to create models of normal behavior for each monitored individual• As we observe new events, compare these events to our behavioral models• Flag events which look out of the ordinary and process accordingly 14
