A new wearable system was introduced last month that is designed to help epilepsy patients receive proper care when needed. The system, named MyCareCentric Epilepsy, combines a Microsoft Band wristband, a mobile app, machine learning, shared care records, and data analysis tools.
MyCareCentric Epilepsy works by placing a large variety of patient information into a single record, held in a CareCentric program from clinical records specialist Graphnet Health.
Parts of that information come directly from patients themselves, by personally entering them into the mobile app or web portal, or via a Microsoft Band wristband that they wear, that is equipped with sensors measuring movement, sleep patterns, heart rate, exercise, temperature and galvanic skin response.
This data can be very helpful in recognizing a seizure and identifying its type, says Dr. Rupert Page, a consultant neurologist and clinical lead at the Dorset Epilepsy Service Page. The patient’s GP, the healthcare Trust and other parts of the care community provide the rest of the patient information.
