Winners also include a vital signs monitor that conducts sophisticated physical exams in just 10 seconds, and a company using digital health technology to improve the health and wellness for five million of our nation's truck drivers.

"Every day, companies are revolutionizing not only the healthcare system, but the way we as individuals can be active participants in our own personal health," said Paul Slavin, Chief Operating Officer, Everyday Health. "We are excited to announce that the Everyday Health Awards will be an annual competition recognizing those who are moving the digital healthcare needle forward."

"In its inaugural year, the Everyday Health Awards for Innovation received more than 140 entries across categories in three weeks, and what's more astounding is not just the quantity of entries, but the sheer quality of the entries submitted," said Jill Gilbert, producer of the Digital Health Summit. "There is no better way to shine a light on these digital health innovations than at such a high profile event like CES where "digital health" and "wearable tech" are the hottest buzz words."

The 2014 Everyday Health Awards for Innovation Winners:

Category: Patient Diagnostics & Management
SmartWatch by Smart Monitor
SmartWatch provides a comprehensive care management solution that acts as a safety net for patients prone to convulsions, seizures and tremors. A wearable device used in conjunction with a smartphone app of patented algorithms, it recognizes patterns of repetitive shaking movements such as those caused by convulsions, tremors and seizures and alerts family members' mobile phones in seconds, enabling timely intervention. The solution provides recording of valuable episodic parameters and temporal tracking of abnormal motion activity, which was never possible in an outpatient setting previously.

Category: Emerging Tech
Dexcom G4 PLATINUM
The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM is the longest Continuous Glucose Monitor sensor approved for up to 7 days' use. The Dexcom CGM shows the body's response to food and exercise. Special alarms on the receiver alert users when they are outside their target zone, so they can take action to avoid the potential health risks of either low or high blood sugar levels. It can provide data up to 288 times in a 24-hour period.

Category: Inclusive Innovation 
Cityzen Sciences Smart Monitoring Shirt
The Smart Monitoring Shirt is the most integrated wearable monitoring solution. Cityzen Sciences develops smart fabric integrating micro sensors able to monitor people's heart rate, temperature, activity, localization and more. Developed initially for sport uses, the company's smart clothing is expected to be able to monitor people's health from their home, being connected with their doctor or family, in the near future.

Category: The Healthy Consumer
Scanadu Scout
Scanadu Scout is a vital signs monitor packed with sensors that enable anyone to conduct sophisticated physical exams—in a snap.  In 10 seconds from placing Scanadu Scout to their temple, it will read their temperature, heart rate, breathing rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, emotional stress and blood oxygenation. Patients can also share this information with their doctor to help treat and diagnosis symptoms and conditions without leaving the comfort of their own home.

Category: The Healthiest Company
Prime Inc.
Prime Inc.'s Driver Health and Fitness (DHF) program is the first of its kind in the commercial carrier industry to use available digital health technology to combat metabolic syndrome that is affecting 83-percent of the nation's five million truck drivers.

The Everyday Health Awards for Innovation honor individuals, companies or organizations that are utilizing technology to design and engineer innovative products or services that help people or patients with better health outcomes. Finalists were selected by an expert judging panel in the digital health and wellness industry based upon innovation, impact, implementation and individuality.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace.

Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions.

One of the bewildering things about DevOps is integrating the massive toolchain including the dozens of new tools that seem to crop up every year. Part of DevOps is Continuous Delivery and having a complex toolchain can add additional integration and setup to your developer environment.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
