Creating a service in TelluCloud


The heart of the TelluCloud data model are assets. Assets are persons or objects of interest, anything from staff to patients to equipment. Asset can be grouped and be given textual tags for easier organisation. Types are used to define what the asset is by having a user defined set of properties that all assets of the type will inherit.

This model is very flexible and allows users to create an advanced service.

Examples of possible services in TelluCloud

Measuring blood pressure

An asset represents a patient. We create a type called patient with a numerical property for blood pressure. The blood pressure property is configured to receive its value directly from the device. We create the desired patients with data history on. To relay the measurements to an electronic patient journal we create a subscription and enter the server the data should be sent to.

We can now browse the history of each patient and get the measurements as graphs.

Safety for lone workers

Some professions are working alone out in the field. This can be dangerous, not only because of the risk of being attacked but also in case there is a medical emergency. In TelluCloud we create an asset to represent a worker. We create two rules, one to trigger if the worker presses an assistance button on his device and one if the worker is lying down without moving. The rules will notify an alarm center and give the worker help when he needs it. The device sends the current position of the worker regularly, but the coordinates is only available to the alarm center when there is an actual alarm.

Asset management

Spending time to find equipment is a big problem in hospitals other large institutions. Equipment can be registered in TelluCloud as assets with an equipment type. The type can have properties to indicate the status of the equipment, such as state (reserved, in use, available) and responsible user. Indoor positioning devices can be attached to the equipment to let other users know where the equipment is. Custom apps can be created to give the simplest possible user interface for users to reserve and locate equipment.
