Health 2.0 Developer Challenge Winner: Team Videntity
The West Wireless Health Institute called on innovative developers to save health care cost through the creation of an application that will integrate sensor-derived data with social networks to construct a personalized wireless health ecosystem. Teams needed to design a secure, standardized mechanism that will integrate personalized information from an established social network interface (such as OpenSocial) with health data derived by wireless health sensors.
At the Health 2.0 Fall Conference in San Francisco, October 7-8, 2010 team Videntity was announced as the winner of the Accelerating Wireless Health Adoption through a Standardized Social Network Platform Challenge and of $10,00 prize. They made a blood pressure meter and a weight via a Wii balance board that will be attached to a client’s computing device. Data can be read directly from the device and transmitted via a social network for visual display.
