We personalize health on our connected health platform.
The SigmaΣHealth™ platform is an extremely intuitive personalized preventive healthcare system.
Our solution hinges on the belief that we are the ones most capable of taking care of ourselves. Not a faceless provider, not a physician, not even our families. We take responsibility.
It is founded on the idea of enabling and empowering individuals in managing their health. It pushes forward a very nascent and radical notion of personalized health. This notion assumes particular importance with chronic diseases – also called non-communicable diseases or NCDs.
The RedMed Platform
The SigmaΣHealth™ platform comprises the following:
A customized modular mobile backpack kiosk to undertake vitals screenings (rapiDx®), cloud storage and analytics, and an end-user engagement app (mDx®) for individuals to know their health status and take appropriate actions. The backpack kiosk can measure both non-invasive and minimally invasive vitals. All of the minimally invasive tests are point-of-care tests (PoCT) that require a finger prick of blood with near-instantaneous reporting.
The whole workflow – encompassing kiosk attendant sign in, customer registration/authentication, base risk questionnaire, non-invasive vitals, minimally invasive vitals collection, reporting, and email of full vitals report to customer – takes about 12 to 15 minutes. Finally, the end-user app has easy-to-use tools to monitor health status, automatic notifications that give a heads-up if any specific vital is trending above or below the average for the person, dynamic risk scoring for any chronic condition, messaging and tele-engagement with a doctor or coach, social challenge, and digital payment.
RedMed complies with extant and progressive standards relating to data security, privacy, authentication, portability, and consumer ownership of their data that will allow them to exit the system entirely if they so desire. We are committed to open standards and interoperability and will make every effort to enable our users to continue being a part of other worlds and to draw them in, at their preference, to pool other experiential data that make sense in a healthcare context and make for a richer experience and understanding. This may include social, wearables, Internet of Things, Internet of Healthcare Things, and anything else the future may bring.
The RedMed Methodology
Three principles describe our methodology:
Measurement, Cognition, Action.
Measurement of body vitals is accomplished at the point-of-care screening diagnostic kiosk appliance and stored securely in the cloud; Cognition is fostered and encouraged by the various tools promoting awareness and appreciation on the mobile app; and Action through behavioral change methods that instill positive habits for positive health outcomes.
We call this “TLC” or, Track-Learn-Change.
Track, Learn & Change are the main components of the RedMed end-user engagement app, mDx®. These components – are described below. Since RedMed’s methodology is all about tracking vitals with the intent to learn about them and undertake behavioral change, our app has the tools to facilitate and empower the user to undertake the changes necessary to reduce risk for a chronic condition and maintain good health.
Track: Periodic Vitals Tests
We will help people to record and track their health status. The periodic vitals tests form the core of our tracking methodology, supplemented by user-generated data describing their health history, diet and activity.
The rapiDx™ kiosk appliance comprises a customized mobile backpack that could be used anywhere, on-site, and on-demand. It includes all instrumentation and is driven by a kiosk app that authenticates the attending technician and registers/authenticates a customer, guides the workflow for completion of all tests that measure body vitals, issue a report, store the data in our cloud servers, and facilitate payment.
Learn: Vitals Trends & Risk Scoring
We will help people to learn about their own health and the vulnerabilities they face and what they mean. Learning is accomplished through predictive risk scoring for any chronic disease and supplemented by learning resources.
Learning is strengthened by our risk scoring and the Air Traffic Control style “WellScore | PHR”. Each of the quadrants represents a state of risk as revealed by the parameters comprising the quadrant. Users have a rich basis to absorb and appreciate the status of their health when they see the trends in their vitals, their nutrition characteristics, and activity logs in conjunction with the risk score computed for them.
Change: Behaviour Modification
We will help people inspire themselves to undertake fundamental changes in their lifestyles that bring about demonstrable results towards good health.
Change — Action in our methodology – is assisted by behavioural models that draw from behavioural psychology to enable new habit formation. We believe these – including social learning, coaching, and mentoring either virtual or offline – hold the possibility for newer and more healthy habits to form, replacing the old.
