Remote Patient Monitoring? Now It’s Possible!

The Connected Health project aims to bring vital sign monitoring to the masses with a simple, inexpensive unit built around commodity hardware. This monitoring system is connected to the Internet, which enables remote patient monitoring.

They developed the HealthyPi HAT for the Raspberry Pi as a way of opening up the healthcare and open source medical to anyone.
HealthyPi is a HAT for the Raspberry Pi that turns it into a full-featured human vital signs monitor.

“Our objective when we began developing the HealthyPi was to make a simple vital sign monitoring system which is simple, affordable, open-source (important !) and accessible. For the sake of reproducibility, the entire PCB design is only 2-layers and can be opened/edited in the free version of Eagle. The BOM count also has been intentionally kept low”

For this application the makers used a Raspberry Pi 3, because it is affordable, easy-to-use and accessible: you can get a Raspberry Pi easily from any corner of the globe and a wide variety of support is available.

The most important part of the whole development is that HealthyPi is completely open-source, both Hardware and Software alike. All our code and hardware schematics are available on GitHub.

Another project’s focal point is the cloud connectivity. By collecting data for high-risk patients inside or outside a healthcare, eventualities can be prevented. This is possible by analyzing a large amount of historical data and use machine learning to learn from the data for predictive analysis. Is also possible the diagnosis of patient health from a healthcare professional in a remote location.
