Adoption of mobile and connected health tech in clinical trials is a real-world challenge for pharmaceutical companies. Our CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier has shared his thoughts recently about the adoption of mobile and connected health tech with Fierce Pharma.
"The industry needs to get with it now or pay for it later—literally. The reason? Sensor tech will be adopted faster at a large scale in healthcare than in pharma trials, and that means “the drugs you are developing today are going to be seen with tools that you are not using in your trials right now.” That could cost drugmakers billions of dollars if they launch products only to find that monitoring tech turns up real-world outcomes that don’t meet payers’ standards."

Everyday, first responders put their own lives at risk to help individuals, families, and communities. They experience frontline tragical issues, such as accidents, deaths, murders, etc. In Canada, according to the Tema Conter Memorial Trust, ‘’PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a very real phenomenon facing over 20% of all First Responders’’ (CASP, 2016).
Health data are useful to get insights about the individual’s vitals. Hexoskin provides the physiological data, which gives an easy access to the vital signs information in order to determine the appropriate prevention solutions. Hexoskin can measure and report in real-time, high-level actionable data such as readiness information; remote dashboard for command center; focus and cognitive assessment; stress and fatigue monitoring; mood status monitoring; energy expenditure and metabolism monitoring.View full article →
Hexoskin is attending the AI in Healthcare Summit in San Francisco this week to present its connected health platform and healthcare AI architecture on Monday, June 26th.
The current hospital system has been built around the treatment of acute illness: emergencies, injuries, infections, etc. Chronic diseases are changing healthcare, and we are now entering a future in which care delivery is becoming decentralized, where communication between health professionals and patients is being facilitated by technology, leading to many potential advancements in prevention, treatment of chronic illness, and much more.
In his talk, Hexoskin's CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier discusses the specific tools enabling these advancements, what challenges exist in using health data for AI, and how healthcare professionals can leverage these new technologies to improve the quality of life for chronically ill patients.
The Hexoskin software research platform is designed to generate continuous health data for the development of Artificial Intelligence (machine learning) algorithms for chronic diseases management. Hexoskin also offers AI and data science services to healthcare and pharma companies.

The Department of Homeland Security and Grant County Sheriff’s Office recently tested new technologies for first responders in diverse emergency scenarios in the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington state. Some first responders participating in the program are using Hexoskin to monitor their vitals and their data are transmitted to the command center using smartphones. Read the article ''First Responders test new communications tech in partnership with Homeland Security'' for more information.
As seen in the AARP document, The Longevity Economy – How People Over 50 are Driving Economic and Social Value in the U.S., ‘’early experiments also indicate that Hexoskin may facilitate remote monitoring/telehealth—in uses ranging from ambient assisted living (AAL) to sleep health (Banejee, T. et al., 2015) (…) This reduces both public and individual healthcare costs, and is minimally intrusive for patients.’’
Hexoskin is the only clinically validated system that continuously records ECG with respiratory lung functions and daily/sleep activities. It is used more and more to assess sleep quality at home and in clinical studies. In fact, all the data recorded with Hexoskin are important to consider when it comes to wellness and longevity.
