I forgot to mention this in my OpenWorld recap post, but it’s probably just as well. It might have been lost with the rest of the content. Dan Norris was talking about what he does, apparently he works, and he mentioned the Fall Saver.
I guess Dan works with Piocon, and Piocon won a Titan award from the Oracle PartnerNetwork during OpenWorld. Piocon created Medical Home for Your Choice Living. Medical Home uses Fusion Middleware and Oracle Database to provide Your Choice Living’s customers with “a complete ‘suite’ of teleheath service capabilities”.
Dan worked on the backend side of the FallSaver product, which is really cool stuff. FallSaver is a Bluetooth-enabled patch with a sensor that can detect where the wearer is and if the wearer falls. The patch allows patients to be wirelessly monitored, and the little gadget can proactively alert based on high-risk activities or locations. Dan can elaborate in comments.
Anyway, this kind of stuff really sizzles. Remember Life Call, circa 1989? This is so much more James Bond, plus it’s built on Oracle. Very cool stuff. Anyone else have a cool stuff story from OpenWorld?
