NXN and Tactio make healthcare personal
NXN and Tactio Health Group will offer at home smart healthcare services
Smart city specialist NXN and Tactio Health Group have announced a new partnership to develop patient-centered digital health programs.
The service will allow patients to use their own smart devices, including fitness trackers, smart blood pressure meter, smart weighing scales and so on to wirelessly transmit their health data to their personal app. The app can then be accessed on a tablet or similar, to provide a personal health dashboard.
The initial program will monitor data on a daily and weekly basis, and will soon be able to securely share the data with
"We are very excited about the partnership and the launch of advanced digital healthcare programs with Tactio by using our digital transformation platform that enables the development and roll out of digital health services in a structured and cohesive way. We believe this will enhance healthcare and provide a more engaging and result driven healthcare service to patients across the region," says Ghazi Atallah, CEO, NXN.
As much as 60% of the population in the GCC suffers from some form of long-term health issue, such as diabetes, hypertension or obesity, he adds, and this solution will help healthcare providers to provide much closer monitoring of out-patients, to provide them with alerts, advice and follow up. This will help address the problem of patients who don't follow through on treatment programs or who are not able to attend health facilities for regular consultations.
The service will combine NXN's digital platform capabilities with Tactio's expertise in providing healthcare at home, and will integrate the TactioRPM platform as the centre for individual's health. The Tactio solution is HIPAA compliant and will utilise NXN's secure data platform with high availability and resilience.
"NXN's leadership in the region has been instrumental in providing readily deployable solutions for Smart Cities and Districts, enabling clients across the region to leverage innovative services in their digital transformation journey. Empowered by its Zain partnership, NXN understands the value of shaping a digital future for today's patients that have all become digital consumers. We are glad that NXN is now focusing on digitizing healthcare services and selected Tactio as the digital health platform to make it happen," says Michel Nadeau, CEO of Tactio Health Group.
