The Promise of Small Data for Telemedicine in Chronic Condition Management: A Real-World Case Series.

Connected care is defined as the “real-time, electronic communication between a patient and a provider, including telehealth, remote patient monitoring, and secure email communication between clinicians and their patients” . Connected care can create a high-value interaction strategy with patients when it makes thoughtful use of commercially available digital health technologies with demonstrated both clinical and economic effectiveness.

Karantis360, is a home sensor technology that enables real-time
tracking, data analytics and predictive care for personal care powered by IBM Watson Health. IndividuALLyticsTM is a telemedicine platform driven by a patent-pending an N-of-1 analytical engine and related digital dashboards that provides individual, patient-level evaluation of treatment response.

The underlying technology combines disparate digital health technology
data with the best evidence-base guidelines with N-of-1 methodology. The output allows for creation of personalized treatments
empirically tested at the patient-level over time. When aggregated both within and across persons,
the time-ordered data can build predictive pathways of behavior and ensure the relevant care and medical treatments are in place
to support effective medical and self-management of chronic illness. This case-series report describes the implementation of a
joint home sensor technology and an N-of-1 analytic engine with three elderly consented volunteer customers-patients of Karantis360. Each person underwent successive, 2-week behavioral change treatment phases to determine
usability, utility regarding medical and self-management and any proximal effects on health risks.
