Long-term Care



A Canadian long-term care provider used Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors and an analytics platform to provide residents with more independent, fulfilled lives. However, platform limitations prevented the organization from scalably extracting, transforming, and analyzing health data to deliver proactive, personalized care.

To overcome these data challenges, Pythian designed and built an affordable, scalable analytics solution using its Enterprise Data Platform (EDP) QuickStart for Google Cloud. This solution allowed the organization to analyze and visualize 10 billion data points and lay the foundation for predictive care leveraging machine learning models.

What we did

In just a few weeks, Pythian deployed a customized Enterprise Data Platform (EDP) QuickStart for Google Cloud solution. The Pythian team delivered quick-to-value data in the cloud, analytics, and visualization use case supported by pre-project planning and infrastructure design. A custom BigQuery to BigQuery data pipeline drives greater health data utilization, while custom dashboards enable powerful insights through descriptive visualizations.

This solution allowed the long-term care provider to access their data lake at scale and improve their ability to provide value through their services. This additional control over their data will create opportunities to better serve the needs of their residents while maintaining security, cost savings, and data integrity.
