Ambulatory Electroencephalogram (EEG) equipment was a game changer in diagnostics just a few decades ago, as testing for possible causes of neurological symptoms could happen from the comfort of a patient’s home. Today, HPN faces entirely new challenges with their Video Ambulatory Electroencephalogram (VAEEG) which captures embedded operating systems, Bluetooth connectivity, advanced sensors, 100+ hours of video recordings of brainwave activity and detailed logs that help physicians diagnose and treat their patients.
With more complexity comes more issues: to get reliable data, patients need to carry a Bluetooth-enabled amplifier which records and transmits data. While this gives patients more freedom there are some complications that could render patient data and tests unusable: loss of connectivity, battery failures, videos cameras not recording, or memory cards getting corrupted and unable to store data. Previously, whenever such issues happened, HPN had to send over its team members to diagnose and fix problems.
