Goal for March 2014:
- Wei: Phonegap implementation of library to retreive data from bluetooth A&D weight scale.
- Wei: Phonegap implementation of library to retreive data from bluetooth A&D blood pressure monitor.
- Wei: Phonegap implementation of library to retreive data from OneTouch glucometer via BluGlu bluetooth dongle.
- Dylan: POC native Android code to connect to FitBit servers and retrieve data uploaded by a FitBit device using their API.
- Dylan: POC native Android code to connect to Withings servers and retrieve data uploaded by a Withings weight scale.
- Dylan: POC native Android code to connect to MyOSCAR and retrieve/upload data.
- Dylan: Port Phonegap library implementation to retrieve data from bluetooth A&D devices to native Android.
- Alek: human-usable version of Phonegap application to work with A&D weight scale, blood pressure monitor, and BluGlu.
- Alek: Rewrite the first screen of the Demo MMDI app in Java (UI and retrieval of paired devices complete). Assumes Bluetooth is already enabled.
Not yet completed tasks:
- Wei: Phonegap implementation of library to retreive data from OneTouch glucometer via Polytel bluetooth dongle.
- Dylan: Retrieve measurements from a Withings scale and upload it to MyOscar.
- Dylan: Retrieve bluetooth glucometer readings in native Android code and upload it to MyOscar.
- Zak: UI Design
- Zak: Zephyr: Integrate with UI and test code to make sure it works.
- Zak: MyOscar: Push data to myoscar and pull updates at the end of the day
- Alek: Design/Refine the UI for the Simple Data Uploader App
- Alek: Design/Refine the UI for the Workout App.
- Alek: Add functionality to the buttons of the Demo MMDI Java app (not a priority at the moment).
NexJ's mobile health solution requires its smartphone health coach application to have the ability to read medical measurement data from Bluetooth-capable devices, The devices included in the initial project proposal are as follows: blood pressure device, glucose level measuring device and a weight measuring device.
Most of us probably have some relative that may be in and out of hospital or some may have a critically ill relative. Wouldn't it be nice to have some way of monitoring how they are doing? Wouldn't it be great to see all this information on your smart phone? Wouldn't it be great to have not only the information freely available to patients but also that the software is free and open source? I will explain the cutting edge technology/research we are conducting.
What is MyOscar?
MyOscar is a personal health record system which was created to give patients the freedom to see their medical records. Not only are patients able to see this information but also share this information with family and loved ones. The software is open source. To read more about it visit:
Should Patients Have Access To Their Personal Medical Data And Why?
You may have an elderly parent or grandparent that you may want to monitor if their condition becomes critical while at work or traveling. Or you may have a critically ill loved one that you may be taking care of. We think by having this technology, it would make it possible to help improve peoples lives and relieve worries.
Critical Care Patient Monitoring And Can Technology Help?
We believe that yes, it could be possible to help a patients for example a critical care patient which would need around the clock monitoring. Perhaps with technology like this patients could leave the hospital and allow their caregivers to monitor them through an application (smart phone).
Our Efforts At Seneca Center of Development Of Open Source Technology
We are researchers, students and professors that believe that it may be possible to improve the healthcare industry through cutting edge technology. We believe that this technology we create should be open source. We have created mobile applications that read wireless via Bluetooth to retrieve accurate medical data. Currently we are working on syncing this data with MyOscar EMR to further improve accessibility of patient data.
