Environmental Monitoring for Medical Applications

Overview

Billions of dollars are lost each year in healthcare due to the mishandling of temperature-sensitive items during transport and storage. In addition to monetary losses, human life is impacted when vaccines or drugs are administered that have reduced efficacy, patients are misdiagnosed when laboratory samples are improperly handled, and drawing of patient samples have to be repeated resulting in increased healthcare costs and delayed results. That’s where DígaView™ Medical Cold Chain with automated hands-free temperature monitoring comes in.

DígaView™ Medical Cold Chain (DMCC)

Dígame teamed with medical professionals in transportation and laboratory verticals to develop DígaView™ Medical Cold Chain (DMCC).  DMCC is an advanced wireless sensor and SaaS solution empowering customers to proactively manage their temperature & humidity sensitive items in real-time. With DMCC customers automate compliance monitoring and reporting activities for temperature sensitive items in storage and transit. And with DígaView™ Predictive Alerts personnel are notified of potential problems and address them BEFORE they happen.

How it Works

 

  • Place DígaView™certified wireless temperature/humidity sensors in cold storage locations and transport containers.
  • Real-time data is automatically collected and sent real-time to our secure DígaView™ Cloud Monitoring and Analytics platform.
  • View performance data to optimize your operation and download customizable reports.
  • Automated text and email alerts are sent from the DígaView™ Analytics Engine when temperature profile limits are approached or exceeded.

 

Smart Environments to Improve Public Safety

The recent outbreak of Norovirus at several Chipotle™ locations highlights the scale of the problem.  

Dígame has partnered with a public health compliance company to develop an IoT-based solution to both monitor and encourage hand-washing compliance with CDC best-practice recommendations.  In a similar way to how a seat belt buzzer helps encourage people to put on their seat belts, the DígaView™ Hygiene Compliance (DHC) solution encourages people to take steps to protect the public.

DígaView™ Hygiene Compliance (DHC)

The DígaView™ Hygiene Compliance solution couples smart sensors, edge logic and networked services for analysis and alerts that help employees comply with public health regulations. With it, you can monitor the hand-washing behavior of employees and guide their behavior towards 100% compliance with CDC recommendations. 

The FDA & CDC recommend a 20 second soap and water wash to remove Transient Pathogens. Studies have shown that only c.a. 7% of people actually follow this protocol, leaving the other 93% of us non-compliant and a potential public health risk.

DHC can help improve compliance by giving employees feedback on how long they should be washing their hands with audible and visual cues. In addition, DHC can give restaurant managers and employees a history of their performance to track improvement.

How it Works

The DígaView™ Hygiene Compliance solution uses smart sensor technology to monitor hand-washing behavior in kitchens.  Intelligent controllers monitor soap dispensers, wash times and other parameters in real time and relay that information to the cloud.  Employees are given instantaneous feedback by the system to guide behavior. The data logged to our cloud server can be used to analyze trends in overall performance and provide a useful record for presentation to health inspectors.  Real time email and SMS (text message) alerts can be issued when protocol is not being followed.

Data shows that use of the DHC system can improve compliance dramatically and that the improvements can be maintained over time as shown below for 3,039 hand-washing sessions:

NFC Mobile Marketing for the Beverage Industry

Overview

"Consumer behavior has changed forever.  Today's battles for hearts, minds and dollars is won (or lost) in micro-moments - intent driven moments of decision-making and preference-shaping that occur throughout the entire consumer journey.  Micro-moments occur when people reflexively turn to a device - increasingly a smartphone - to act on a need to learn something, do something, discover something, watch something, or buy something.  They are intent rich moments when decisions are made and preferences shaped.  In these moments, consumers' expectations are higher than ever."

DígaView™ NFC Mobile Marketing

The DígaView™ NFC Mobile Marketing solution was developed to capture those "micro-moments" by engaging customers at the point-of-decision to build stronger brands, increase sales and expand loyalty programs.  With the DígaView™ IoT application platform's product authentication, analytics & reporting engines and performance dashboards, you gain real-time insight into consumer behavior and have the tools to measure the success of your advertising and promotions.

What Is NFC?

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a low cost, short range wireless communication technology driven by the rapid growth of contactless payment applications (think Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay). Many legacy and most new smartphones support NFC.  Now that NFC has gained critical mass in smartphones, product and brand owners are increasingly adopting the technology to put their digital content in the hands of the consumer in an engaging and intuitive way.

How It Works

Built upon the The DígaView™ IoT application platform, the DígaView™ NFC Mobile Marketing solution couples NFC enabled marketing materials (product labels, coasters, shelf talkers, beer/wine flights, table tents, posters and more), digital advertising and promotions with smartphones.  Rather than type an URL, launch an app to scan a QR code or use paper coupons, consumers simply "tap" their smartphone to the marketing material and digital content (web pages, videos, coupons, contest entries) is automatically delivered to influence buying behavior and shape preferences.  And with the DígaView™ Dashboard, you can view the real-time performance of your advertising and promotions success.
