Retail thrives in the hospital
When Ochsner Health System introduced the O Bar, they were among the first to pilot the idea of a “genius bar” in a healthcare setting. The semi-retail space showcases and sells the latest in interactive and connected health technology to help patients and their care team better manage their condition. Technology specialists staff the O Bar and can answer any question or even just help patients download the device apps. We partnered with Ochsner to distribute the Nokia BPM to their patients.

Solving healthcare's biggest challenges
Nokia launched a joint initiative with Stanford Medicine X to spark scholarly research activity on chronic diseases that could be managed using connected devices. The top eight finalists include:1. Wearables and Innovation in Heart Disease Management with John Hopkins;
While each study is examining vastly different clinical areas, the teams are looking to uncover how patient-generated data can transform healthcare.

Changing the narrative on post-acute stroke
Currently, patients have a 30% chance of being hospitalized again in the next 3 months after a first stroke. That's why Nokia partnered with the HUS neurology department to build a remote monitoring solution to track patients vital signs continuously and prevent future accidents. With over 14,000 patients visiting Meilahti Hospital's Neurological Outpatient Clinic in Helsinki every year, the collaboration will enable input from HUS clinicians and patients to improve the quality and effectiveness of Nokia Technologies' remote patient monitoring solutions, all while driving meaningful patient outcomes.

Reversing CHF fortunes
Nokia collaborated with our partner iGetBetter and conducted a pilot study with Brockton Hospital to manage patients with CHF. Patients received Nokia’s weight scale and wireless blood pressure cuff. Data from the devices was integrated through iGetBetter, where the care coordinator would measure and record the patients’ vital signs. The aim of the pilot was to reduce readmission rates and excessive use of emergency department resources.
Fewer ED admissions.
Fewer inpatient encounters.
Fewer cardiology visits.
