Chances are, you’ve got some smarts. Perhaps a smartphone? Maybe a tablet for reading books and magazines? And there are interesting new products that enhance your smart device. Like the fitbit flex that monitors sleep and activity, and records the findings on your smartphone. Or Telcare’s Blood Glucose Meter, which can let you view results on a smartphone. Obviously, there’s a lot going on in the area of smart home health, but how do you put it all together? How do you make it possible for the patient, and the home caregivers, and the physician, to all have access to the home-generated health information? Over time there will probably be many solutions, but one of the more interesting efforts gaining traction now is from Care Innovations, a joint venture of Intel and GE, that’s focused on healthcare innovation.

For more information on how Care Innovations is trying to pull this together, and their recent FDA clearance, read the very nice article by Gary Kaye at his In the Boombox site.
