Flex: Building a Better Way to Improve Patient Outcomes with API Management, ML, and Advanced Analytics

As one of the world’s largest design and maufacturing services providers, Flex has perfected the art of bringing powerful ideas to life, no matter where the innovation springs from.

This spirit, captured by the company’s Sketch-to-Scale solutions, is on full display with its BrightInsight digital health platform, which can integrate data from regulated medical devices to provide real-time intelligence to its medical device and pharmaceutical customers.

“We can help our customers harness the value that is coming from the data by generating real-time actionable insights that enable them to improve patient outcomes,“ said Ferry Tamtoro, CTO and vice president of Flex Digital Health.

The platform is built upon an array of microservices, Tamtoro said. By abstracting the complexity of this backend, the Apigee platform provides a user-friendly access point for customers to access the powerful data services Flex provides, he added.

"Apigee is a trusted partner," Tamtoro said. "We know that Apigee can handle a large amount of transactions per second and is able to do that in a secure and reliable manner."

Also built into the BrightInsight platform is a host of advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities—technologies provided by Google Cloud Platform.

“We get to apply the toolset that is being offered by … GCP and apply healthcare-specific use cases that can benefit our customers,” Tamtoro said. “Those use cases could result in medication adherence that is more personalized for our patients.”
