What was the challenge

Launching a new product for a medical niche solving the problem of losing medical assets and with that reducing costs

Estimates indicate that hospitals purchase 10% to 20% more portable equipment than actually required for operational needs. A suitable ‘asset tracking system’ (RTLS) can deliver a substantial ROI (return on investment) with an almost immediate payback time

Minimal IT overhead with a high emphasis on security is a crucial requirement i.e. a secure and easy to onboard solution with 0 IT footprint on-premises at the hospitals

Operational maintenance and support of the platform after delivery through SLA

The solution

Together we built the Smart Healthcare Platform, which helped hospitals track where hospital material such as beds, mattresses, pumps, and monitors were at given moments in time. Furthermore, during the Corona-crisis, hospitals indicate the need for seeing where hospital beds are located, when these are moved, and how often a nurse goes into a COVID-19 room; which is now possible using the Smart Healthcare Platform.

Working in tandem with our creative team, who designed an engaging solution, we planned the technical architecture to be a true Medical IoT solution. By utilizing the power of AWS and keeping everything in the Cloud, we ensured the minimal IT overhead requirement.

A key decision was opting for Serverless approach to ensure maximum possible scalability. Further security was ensured by using AWS Cognito and a huge amount of data intake we ensured by connecting AWS IoT service on the intake level, Amazon Kinesis to ensure streaming consistency.

Blyott Smart Healthcare Business logic and ETL is done using .NET Core AWS Lambdas. All the data ends up with a blend of DynamoDB and RDS, to keep the data costs minimum and yet offer real-time OLAP functionalities. we envisioned ELT processes using AWS Glue and AWS Athena as a full-blown OLAP. Alongside a REST API available to integrate the platform with 3rd party solutions or mobile apps we built a rich Angular web application.

On top of that, we built a bespoken JIRA Service desk solution providing full 24/7 support for Blyott and its end-client, ticketing solution, and phone service.


The result

Implementation was done in short Sprint cycles, continuously reviewed together with Blyott. We tested a prototype and got user confirmation of product usability. Currently, the platform is gathering data of medical assets in real-time providing valuable insights to drastically reduce hospital inventory and operational costs.

We are currently rolling out the solution in full at multiple hospitals in Belgium, and we are planning the roll-out to more hospitals in the near future. We are continuously providing product research, implementing technology updates, following user interactions, and implementing improvements gathered from the analysis of user behavior. Due to the AWS Cloud and Serverless architecture implementation, the platform can scale endlessly based on the incoming data, ensuring performance while retaining a predictive cost-model based on actual usage.

"We just clicked and had an instant connection. Plus, Typeqast is a potential partner for life. This is because they are flexible, think alongside us, and want to grow together with us."
