Purpose

The main functionality of Zeblok SensorHub is to securely acquire sensor data from health facilities and stream such data through the web. This is accomplished through one or more EC2 Instances and RDS running on Amazon AWS. Essentially, SensorHub is a stateless infrastructure that stores sensor data from a variety of Zeblok sensors and classifies each sensor according to a location that comprises of Facility/Area/Room/Bed. SensorHub is critical to keeping a full encrypted record of HIPAA compliant patient data throughout the lifecycle of sensors associated to the platform.

SensorHub manages sensors added through the Zeblok Gateway by a technician. However, providers, doctors, nurses, and other end-users do not directly interact with SensorHub on a human level. Instead SensorHub closely communicates with ClientHub, a complementary cloud-based system that handles user management, accounts, and static information.

SensorHub keeps record of the number of sensors, sensor events, and sensor alerts. Such data can be acquired through a ClientHub based application and properly formatted to show information properly authorized for a particular user. Zeblok SensorHub can be used for both medical and non-medical purposes to bring sensors to the web.

Additionally, SensorHub can perform intelligent searches and query for sensor data for any particular patient. It keeps a solid archive of data for every patient regardless of minor changes in the sensor environment. The infrastructure of SensorHub is easy to use and features minimal interaction from initial setup to long term usage.
