Track & Know health pilot highlighted on ITV Anglia (UK)

Last week, ITV Anglia News put the spotlight on Track & Know's health pilot at NHS Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, UK. They paid a visit to Dr. Ian Smith at the hospital ward where patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) receive treatment and also focussed on the ongoing research within the framework of this H2020 project. Researcher Kieran Lee explained how this pilot study measures driving behaviour by recording brain waves and using phone apps. The study ultimately aims to deve...

The usefulness of more effective Big Data

As the world's population living in metropolitan areas increases, so increases the need for effective and sustainable interventions and services to inject mobility intelligence and improve the quality of life in large urban environments. The technological developments have resulted in the collection of unknown volumes of data across systems that’s are operating in the transport, mobility and the urban applications domains. The existing accumulated large volumes of data, known as “big data”, ...

Track & Know health pilot update presented at British Sleep Society conference

At the recent Bi-Annual British Sleep Society conference in Birmingham (UK), Kieran Lee from the Royal Papworth Hospital presented a poster on going work in pilot study 2. This Track & Know pilot is looking at the network of patient journey flows to pick up oximetry OSA screening tests over the Royal Papworth Hospital catchment area. The work highlights geographical areas with a high demand for a test that are currently required to travel large distances to access one. The hospital is n...

Track & Know investigates how Big Data analysis can help prevent traffic accidents due to obstructive sleep apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder in which repeated episodes of complete or partial obstructions of the upper airway during sleep, result in a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. People who suffer from OSA are 5 times more at risk getting involved in traffic accidents. This means that OSA exceeds drunk driving as a major cause of collisions with motor vehicles[1]. A consortium of 14 organizations from 9 countries is investigating how new Big Data software can help with ...
