Thanks to cheaper and more powerful CPUs as well as improved software platforms, practical eHealth devices are spreading. They promise to keep us in our home for longer, and to provide better, more precise care, all the while containing rising health care costs. eHealth devices already include emergency alert systems, connected blood pressure monitors and oximeters, and many more.
But eHealth is a challenging market for computing devices. To begin with, they must be simple to use and maintain. Frequent on-site support is impractical for most use cases, so they must be able to be remotely administered. Furthermore, they must be long-lasting, as some people will rely on them for long periods of time. A constant flow of updates and bug fixes is not acceptable, as each modification to the setup may trigger flaws in the specific configuration of each device, forcing costly on-site intervention, frustrating the user or, at worse, failing to person its medical function, with possibly dire consequences. Finally, and most importantly, they generate, store and forward data with extremely sensitive personal data. They hold extensive details about our conditions, their evolution, in some cases whether we have been following our treatment or not. So while eHealth devices certainly offer a lot of value to patients, we also need to be able to trust them to behave as expected and to protect our security and our privacy.
