Healthcare IT systems -- complex, massive, top-down, infrastructure-heavy systems -- exist mostly in centralized facilities, such as hospitals and medical centers. However, the vast majority of patients are seen and the vast majority of money is spent in decentralized settings, Dr. Greenberg explained, such as clinics, health posts, and offices, from which only minuscule data is captured. The reason comes down to health workers: if they don't capture the data, no-one gets the data; but their job is to deliver care, not capture data.
Fio gives health workers a device that helps them do what they're supposed to do, and what they want to do -- deliver better care, said Dr. Greenberg. Once integrated into workflow to deliver care, that same device automates and streamlines the "bottom-up" capture of valuable data.
Using any mobile-phone network, the device automatically and securely uploads the data to a cloud database, which authorized stakeholders can access via secure web portals.
Dr. Greenberg shared examples of impactful data gathered by this system, which Fio calls Fionet™.
"When you link automated and streamlined data capture to clinical diagnostic devices you get a Niagara of data," Dr. Greenberg told
Fio delivers these information services via a subscription business model, based on what mobile network operators and software-as-a-service providers have successfully deployed in nearly every economy worldwide.
Designed to introduce, explain and predict the coming trends facing the medical and personal health industries,
Fio is the first mover to automate the capture of accurate, large-scale data directly from point of care and supply it to managers, funders, suppliers, administrators, and stakeholders anywhere in the world within minutes. Fio's solution, Fionet™, connects ground truth directly to planning, execution, and evaluation.
Integrating mobile smart diagnostic devices with cloud information services, Fio simultaneously meets the needs for remote tracking and on-the-spot care. Operating at the nexus of data and the decentralization of care and testing, Fionet generates accurate, complete, timely data for all interconnected stakeholders, while at the same time improving the quality of care provided by individual health workers to individual patients.
