Posted on November 17, 2016 in Connected Devices, Health

Digital health firm US TrustedCare and ARM, a leader in the semiconductor market, have announced a partnership to build medical devices for people with chronic conditions.

The new collaboration will give third-parties access to variety of secure, authenticated, and auditable medical information. US TrustedCare said it will focus on the transition period, as patients recover at home.

ARM and US TrustedCare will build firmware, software, and APIs for healthcare and wellness, using existing industry standards. Third-parties will be able to integrate medical management systems seamlessly, according to ARM.

“ARM is the most widely deployed processor technology in smartphones and wearables, devices we expect to be the main platform for securely gathering medical data and acquiring a patient’s biometric identity and consent,” said Shiv Ramamurthi, healthcare technology director at ARM.

“US TrustedCare is a pioneer in remote monitoring and together we can help improve healthcare efficiency by enabling providers to gather trusted data, helping them make timely clinical decisions and deliver better care at lower cost.”

ARM and US TrustedCare submitted a joint proposal to the “Move Health Data Forward Challenge”, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which was chosen as a winner of Phase 1.

“TrustedCare is focused on allowing health care providers to work in a coordinated way to enable the sustained recovery of patients. We are excited to work with ARM to create a new level of capability that allows providers to deliver more positive outcomes for patients as well as benefiting from the shared savings that will be generated,” said TrustedCare CEO, Ramkrishna Prakash.

Healthcare device development is fraught with perils — regulatory approvals, data security, and more recently, concerns that reading were not accurate — but the technology is becoming ubiquitous, so this type of development will only likely continue.
