IdentityMine Showcases New Healthcare Experience Highlighting New Microsoft Surface Service Pack 1 Features
Company Collaborates with Microsoft HealthVault and Device Manufacturers Nonin Medical and A&D Medical to Build A New User Experience for the Healthcare and Wellness Industry.
Los Angeles, CA (May 11, 2009) -- IdentityMine, an expert user experience company, today presented a demonstration of the IdentityMine Healthcare Product Selector at TechEd during the Microsoft Surface™ session introducing the new Service Pack 1 (SP1) features to conference attendees. With the recent rise in focus on healthcare and wellness, many companies are looking for new approaches to getting the word out about how technology can be a positive influence on long term health and fitness goals.
As a Microsoft Surface partner, IdentityMine was offered the opportunity to develop early application experiences built on SP1 ahead of the public release. SP1 offers a variety of new and powerful developer controls which allow for a quicker and easier implementation of common user experience components. IdentityMine built this new healthcare experience to showcase many of these new SP1 features including the new object routing, element menu and library bar controls.
"The new features in Microsoft Surface Service Pack 1 allowed our team to quickly put together a great product showcase experience," said Mark Brown, CEO at IdentityMine. "With easy to implement features and great cooperation from Microsoft HealthVault, Nonin Medical, and A&D Medical we were able to put together a product that really showcases some of the great new technology in the Healthcare space."
Utilizing the award-winning Nonin Onyx(r) II, Model 9560 fingertip pulse oximeter, the IdentityMine Healthcare Product Selector allows patients and consumers the ability to interact with high performance medical devices. This hands-on approach with real time feedback allows the device a chance to convey health information that many consumers find valuable.
"Nonin is always looking into new ways to educate and empower patients," said Jayant Parthasarathy, Ph.D., eHealth Business Manager at Nonin Medical. "IdentityMine's rich graphic user interface combined with our consumer friendly devices helps promote patient and caregiver engagement and empowers them to make the right choices when considering devices to manage their health."
In addition to Nonin's Pulse Oximeter, IdentityMine worked with A&D Medical to leverage their weight scales and blood pressure monitors. "A&D Medical first and foremost is about the health of our customers," said Teruhisa Moriya, President and CEO of A&D Medical. "By partnering with technology leaders we are able to continually evolve our products to offer the best type of experiences. By providing access to our product interfaces we are helping push health and wellness thinking further into people's everyday lives."
