FLOWBIT® helps medical device companies design, engineer, and deliver software-intensive systems for personalized digital health applications.
Advances in computer science, artificial intelligence, and machine learning have produced algorithms that perform medical diagnosis with accuracy approaching — and in some cases, exceeding — that of trained physicians.
This advancement has presented medical device developers with new opportunities and challenges. Our experience with Signal Processing Analysis, OpenCV, and TensorFlow can help you simplify and overcome challenges around implementing your intellectual property. We can accommodate a range of preferences, including packaging your proprietary algorithms into a final mobile or web application fit for medical use, as opposed to building algorithms from scratch.
TensorFlow is an open source software platform — consisting of tools, libraries, and community resources — for developing and deploying machine learning algorithms. This platform works well with projects requiring access to a significant volume of data. Using this platform, Flowbit can help you build state-of-the-art, scalable and cross-platform machine learning algorithms.
OpenCV — which stands for Open Source Computer Vision Library — provides a large collection of computer vision algorithms, ranging from simple image processing to more complex object detections. These extremely useful algorithms are frequently deployed in combination with our data processing solutions.
Smartphone use skyrocketed from 1B users in 2012 to roughly 4B users in 2021. This growth provides a substantial platform on which innovators can build new products. To illustrate the magnitude of this growth — many Fortune 100 web companies rode the wave of the Desktop Revolution, creating trillions in value — today, the Smartphone Revolution has had even greater scale and more rapid growth than the Desktop Revolution reached at its peak.
There is a lot of potential for new products and companies in the personal digital health space that can ride this mobile wave. For instance, advancement in computational power, senors, potential for personalization, and device-interoperable tech (e.g., wearables, bluetooth) enable this broadening potential for mobile, making it an ideal platform for digital health products. We can provide you with robust native applications development on Apple iOS and Google Android, so that you can take advantage of this massive smartphone platform.
Android is a mobile smartphone Operating System developed by Google — a combination of free, open source, and proprietary software. Android has a wide variety of devices — much more than any other operating system. This gives many options to innovators to be highly selective picking the right hardware device for their application. We are an excellent choice to help you select the best-fit model for your use case and develop your app. As of 2021, there are more than 2.5B active devices using this operating system in 190 countries.
Apple's iOS mobile operating system is the most mature in its class. With a limited set of phones running this operating system, iOS makes a good choice for your application for reaching a wide audience, especially on a fixed development budget. As of 2021, there are 1B active devices using this operating system.
Building and integrating enterprise-level cloud technologies can often lead to perplexing questions of cybersecurity and interoperability.
We can help you with selecting the right cloud technologies by using established development design patterns for healthcare enterprises. We utilize Microsoft Azure Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud Platform as the core backend platforms upon which we build.
Amazon Web Service (AWS) is one of the world-leading cloud service providers. Their infrastructure services and solutions include application servers, databases, data lakes, analytics, and Internet of things. AWS has physically separated server locations, allowing for redundancy, low latency, and fault tolerance in your system. The AWS infrastructure is built to satisfy the most risk-sensitive organizations. Flowbit specializes in many AWS technologies to help you build software on this platform.
Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform — the first choice of many established enterprises. Many organizations that are already invested in Microsoft technologies — such as .NET and C# — will find this computing platform to be a natural fit. Microsoft Azure adheres to strict compliance and regulatory requirements to satisfy data privacy and security concerns. Flowbit can help you build your mission critical applications using this reliable platform.
FLOWBIT® designs systems from the ground up to be fully interoperable with leading EHRs, EMRs and LHS solution providers, using open standards and application programming interfaces. These include:
Epic is one of the most recognized names in EMR systems, with an estimated user base of ~250 million globally, including 500 organizations and 6 million daily transacted system records.
Cerner is a healthcare technology company that develops software powering healthcare delivery throughout a patient’s lifetime — across multiple venues and providers. Like Epic, Cerner is a global company serving a user base of ~250 million people.
Allscripts is a leading healthcare software solutions provider, including electronic health record (EHR), population health, patient engagement, and revenue cycle management services. The company has more than 180,000 physician users with products in 2,700 hospitals and 13,000 extended care organizations.
We provide you with tailored communication interfaces between mobile or cloud that best fit the hardware configuration of your wearable or medical device.
Our software can help you transfer data and instructions to and from your novel device reliably and securely — while keeping up with battery power performance needs. We use a range of Wireless communication protocols and technologies — such as Bluetooth, Near Field Communication, and Wifi — to build systems with seamless integrations.
Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) are both short-range wireless technology standard protocols used for exchanging data between devices. BLE is optimized for low power consumption, and is widely integrated into fitness and medical wearables.
Near Field Communication (NFC) enables devices within a few centimeters of each other to exchange information wirelessly. NFC applications range from identity and access tokens to contactless payment.
Wi-Fi is ubiquitous, providing high through-put data transfer performance critical to many home and enterprise software applications. Ideal Wi-Fi-enabled applications include smart home gadgets and appliances — which require high speed transfer to other devices or the cloud, and can easily be connected to a power outlet.
