ARM and HeartToHeart Partner to Deliver Accurate and Trusted Healthcare Data

CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom & KANSAS CITY, Mo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 11, 2015 — ARM and HeartToHeart Networks LLC have announced a secure digital health solution for use by healthcare providers caring for patients with neurodegenerative conditions. This new remote health management (RHM) solution utilizes mobile devices enabled with a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) based on ARM® TrustZone® technology combined with HeartToHeart’s Structured Intelligence care management platform. The ARM and HeartToHeart RHM solution creates an opportunity for healthcare providers to make accurate decisions based on the delivery of trusted and accurate patient-validated data. At ARM TechCon this week, a live demonstration of this new secure, end-to-end solution can be seen in the ARM booth.

“Trust is a crucial element in every medical undertaking,” said Karthik Ranjan, director, healthcare technology, ARM. “Remote health management has the potential to change lives for patients and bring greater levels of efficiencies to the healthcare industry but only if trust is ensured all the way from the medical sensor to the secure medical records system of the care team. Proven security technologies like ARM TrustZone can provide a trusted environment for data to move from patient to healthcare provider.”

Secure data from sensor-to-screen-to-cloud

RHM solutions are only successful if the patient data is both trusted and accurate. To address those requirements, ARM technology is utilized at both the software and hardware level while incorporating the Structured Intelligence platform from HeartToHeart at the device level. Patients use connected health and wellness devices such as blood pressure monitors to acquire physiological data. As the data moves from sensor to mobile device, encryption is enabled by the ARM mbed™ TLS (Transport Layer Security) features. Once on the mobile device, data is kept secure in a TrustZone-enabled TEE and only the approved medical application can access the stored private data. Prior to any transmission of data, it must first be validated by the patient. The TEE also enables a secure user interface and touchscreen so data is always in the custody of the healthcare provider and patient.

“Data security and confidentiality are always top-of-mind for those of us who are committed to enabling meaningful continuity and support for health among individuals and communities, especially for persons living with neurodegenerative conditions,” said Abhi Ray, CEO, HeartToHeart. “Just as a person’s health journey needs to be seen as a continuous flow, it has been an honor for us to work with partners like ARM who see the secure and trusted flow of personal health information as an end-to-end proposition.”

Neurodegenerative conditions range from diseases such as ALS, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis to spinal cord injuries or brain trauma such as concussions. The remote engagement approach developed by HeartToHeart is a step toward enhancing both quality of life for patients with neurodegenerative conditions and a healthcare provider’s knowledge base by enabling more accurate tracking of disease and symptom progression.
