Minneapolis - Thanks to the combination of rules-based management and mobile healthcare technologies, patients with long-term health conditions may be on the road to a faster recovery based on receiving early detection, continuous remote care, prediction of care demands, and quality of life improvement.Swedish technology company Kiwok AB is integrating Blaze Advisor business rules management technology from Fair Isaac Corp., a Minneapolis provider of analytics and decision management technologies, to enable intelligent out-of-hospital monitoring of patients via Kiwok's mobile healthcare monitoring network.

The service enables remote monitoring of patients with long-term health conditions, such as heart patients and people with diabetes and hypertension. Patients who require regular check-ups, but not necessarily in-hospital care can be equipped with electrocardiogram (ECG) sensors, a small control device and a smart mobile phone that transmits real-time data regarding their medical condition to the hospital via a secure mobile network connection.

With intelligent communication as part of the care processes, the dialog between the patient and the nurse or physician can be more interactive and based on actual information.

BodyKom Series healthcare service uses open interfaces that can be connected to body-close sensors and standard mobile phones. Kiwok's intelligent communication hub provides high availability, high security and scalability, and enables its customers' infrastructures to be connected through a world-leading adapter technology in real time.

Blaze Advisor provides decision support for Kiwok’s BodyKom service, and is used to define the rules that help determine a patient's condition and ensure that the information is sent to the caregiver at the right time. If dangerous deviations from standard ECG data are detected, hospital services are immediately alerted of the patient's deteriorating health and able to dispatch the necessary assistance.
