Flex (San Jose, Calif.) and Google Cloud are partnering to deliver customizable analytics dashboards created by Google Cloud’s machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Flex touts that BrightInsight can be used in a variety of applications including controlling connected devices, drug dosing, decision support, personalized patient interventions, trend analysis and artificial intelligence-driven insights.
“Google Cloud is committed to leveraging our deep engineering expertise to accelerate innovation in digital healthcare,” Gregory Moore, VP of healthcare at Google Cloud, said. “With a partner like Flex, we will enable our customers to develop innovative solutions and leverage machine learning-based analytics that can turn new data sets from wearables, medical devices, therapies and apps into actionable information for patients and providers.”
BrightInsight is currently designed to work with CE-marked and FDA-regulated Class I, II and III medical devices, combination products and software as a medical device requirements. It also features a modular platform architecture to support its customization and for global implementation.
Flex also suggests that BrightInsight reduces the regulatory bottlenecks that cause costly delays by featuring regulatory design control and file management of master files with the FDA.
BrightInSight is built as part of a quality management system that is ISO 13485 and HIPAA compliant. The company is currently working toward HITRUST certification.
