Swedish technology company Kiwok AB and Fair Isaac Corporation announced that Fair Isaac's industry-leading Blaze Advisor business rules management system (BRMS) has been integrated with Kiwok's BodyKom Series healthcare service. The integration enables intelligent out-of-hospital monitoring of patients via Kiwok's mobile health care monitoring network.

Stockholm-headquartered Kiwok developed the BodyKom Series service in cooperation with several technology partners. The service enables remote monitoring of patients with long-term health conditions, such as heart patients and people with diabetes and hypertension. Patients who require regular check-ups, but not necessarily in-hospital care, can be equipped with electrocardiogram (ECG) sensors, a small control device and a smart mobile phone that transmits real-time data regarding their medical condition to the hospital via a secure mobile network connection.

The Blaze Advisor BRMS provides flexibility and decision support for the BodyKom service, and is used to define the rules that help determine a patient's condition and ensure that the information is sent to the caregiver at the right time. If dangerous deviations from standard ECG data are detected, hospital services are immediately alerted of the patient's deteriorating health and able to dispatch the necessary assistance.

"Reliability, data security and intelligent communication in real time are critical in healthcare, just as in other time- and cost-critical initiatives," said Anders Björlin, business architect and co-founder of Kiwok. "Blaze Advisor helps BodyKom deliver significant cost savings for the healthcare sector by supporting early detection, continuous remote care, prediction of care demands, and quality of life improvement for patients."
