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.

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.

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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
