SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Elektra Labs and Scripps Research Translational Institute (SRTI) announced that the Digital Health Library (DHL), a crowd-sourced collection of technologies compiled by SRTI to address health and research needs, will now be integrated with Elektra's Atlas, the world's largest searchable remote monitoring product catalog. The Atlas includes information about 1000+ connected sensor technologies, including validation, usability, security, data rights and other major considerations for trusted usage.
Built by the Scripps Research Team, the DHL serves as a resource for clinicians, researchers and citizen scientists interested in finding information on digital health technologies. It hosts nearly 1000 technologies in 30+ form factors and 40+ sensor modalities spanning disease management, screening and diagnosis, fitness and exercise, plus lifestyle and wellness. Elektra's Atlas platform includes 3000+ physiological and behavioral measures along with technical specifications for 1000+ technologies. Customers can also find validation information from peer-reviewed literature and assessments of privacy policies and security practices of the technology manufacturers.
"We are excited to partner with Scripps Research on this endeavor. The parameters contained in the Atlas serve as a guide on how to weigh the benefits and risks of a certain technology, and the DHL will strengthen that guide," says Christine Manta of Elektra Labs.
"One goal of the DHL is to facilitate clinicians, researchers and citizen scientists in finding evidence based technologies. We are pleased to partner with Elektra to expand the reach of the DHL." said Jane Samaniego of Scripps Research.
"Advancing digital technology for real-time health monitoring is a key way to reach our vision at SRTI for personalized healthcare. There is so much noise and hype surrounding connected sensor technologies. With platforms like the DHL and the Atlas, stakeholders can more readily find what fits their needs," said Shaquille Peters of Scripps Research.
The data from the DHL is publicly available for those interested in general access. Those interested in reviewing the data along with detailed risk-benefit assessment analysis may contact Elektra for access to the Atlas platform.
SRTI and Elektra Labs previously collaborated, along with other leading research and industry groups, on the open-access Digital Measures Playbook. This collaboration furthers both organizations' goals to help deploy safe, effective, ethical, and secure remote monitoring technologies.
