Depending where you put it, BioStamp can give you different information. Putting it on the chest can measure heart rate or EKG, while putting it on the forehead gives you signals from the brain.
Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
The pharmaceutical industry is at a crossroads. The era of writing one prescription after another is over. Patients, advocacy groups, payers, government, and others are asking for better outcomes. Enter digital medicine. To help pharmaceutical companies better understand how digital medicine will redefine the pharmaceutical business model, Pharmica will host its “Pharma 3.0 – The Digital Medicine Era” conference in Conshohocken, PA on April 30th & May 1st, 2014.
“MC10 Inc. is working on commercializing a technology that that takes computer chips out of rigid boxy packages and instead allows them to be soft and move with the body for biometric monitoring on the skin or even for going inside the body on minimally invasive or implantable medical devices,” said Matt Hendricks, Partner with Pharmica Consulting.
Eric Lake, Partner with Pharmica, adds, “Depending where you put it, BioStamp can give you different information. Putting it on the chest can measure heart rate or EKG, while putting it on the forehead gives you signals from the brain. It can upload that information to a smartphone for continuous monitoring, enabling a doctor or caregiver to have a holistic view of therapy effectiveness. Behavior change and increased adherence in patients requires continuous and immediate feedback, and BioStamp provides that. We are excited for the attendees at our conference to see this kind of cutting edge technology.”
