Validic is launching a next-generation of its data connectivity platform, called Inform.
The platform provides a robust and scalable architecture, offering the ability to stream near real-time data into third-party systems and set configurable rules signaling which data should be acted upon. These features, according to Validic, could enable improved remote care, preventive wellness, and continuous monitoring programs.
The Inform technology retrieves, standardizes, and delivers continuous streams of user-permissioned health data from nearly 400 clinical and consumer data sources. Similar to the previous iteration of Validic's platform, personal health data is accessible via a single, secure connection point with Validic's platform.
Inform's state-of-the-art streaming capabilities makes the data accessible to practitioners as soon as the event occurs. Also, thanks to the newly added configurable rules, a practitioner can set triggers that notify him or her when a reading falls outside a set threshold or when a reading has not been submitted. Together, these functionalities provide a forward-looking platform focused on turning disparate data into action and insights.
"Continuous monitoring data, time series data, and data points not yet integrated by healthcare require a platform that can push data in near real-time," Validic CEO Drew Schiller said in a statement. "This is the platform we have re-engineered for healthcare. It allows for scale. It enables only the most important data to trigger events or actions. And, perhaps most importantly, it provides the structure for personal health events to be delivered to care or program managers as soon as they happen."
Moreover, the critical enhancements made as part of the Inform development also enable Validic to support more data entering the system and ensure scale as millions of users continue to be added. The enhanced data model offers simplified data context, metrics, and reporting features and allows for scalability ensuring future device and data types are added routinely. At the moment, Validic's Inform platform is the only streaming data platform available in healthcare.
