Prestigious Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program Recognize Standout Internet-of-Things Companies and Products

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Jan. 31, 2023 – Alio, Inc., a medical technology company reinventing the management of chronic disease, today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “IoT Health & Wellness Company of the Year” award. This is the 7th annual awards program conducted by IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today.

Alio’s technology works 24/7 to provide clinical-grade remote patient monitoring. The company’s SmartPatch product is non-invasive, wireless, and continuously collects metrics from patients while they go about their daily lives. The SmartPatch has the ability to monitor metrics such as heart rate, temperature, auscultation, hemoglobin, hematocrit and potassium. While Alio currently serves patients on dialysis, the remote patient monitoring system is capable of serving other patient populations faced with chronic conditions.

By capturing and sharing clinical-grade data, Alio makes it possible for clinicians and care teams to enable better patient care and avoid adverse health events. Traditionally, most metrics for dialysis patients have been monitored through a monthly blood draw but this approach leaves a considerable gap in data and insights available about the patient’s wellbeing throughout the rest of the month. The Alio platform provides clinicians with actionable analytics and notifications, capturing trend data and insights where there previously weren’t any. Alio’s approach to remote patient monitoring is designed to improve health outcomes while decreasing avoidable healthcare costs. 

“Chronic conditions affect more than one in three people globally and they can be better managed by accommodating and managing care outside the clinical setting. Remote monitoring for chronic conditions today is invasive, expensive, often provides inadequate data, and does not deliver a positive user experience – this decreases patient compliance,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Alio gathers important metrics with one simple SmartPatch and meets or exceeds the current standard of care. Alio insights brings remote monitoring into a new era of precision by providing quality data and better outcomes. We’re thrilled to recognize Alio as ‘IoT Health & Wellness Company of the Year!’”

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from companies all over the world. 

“We are so incredibly honored to receive this recognition from IoT Breakthrough. We know that intermittent monitoring while at the doctor’s office or hospital is not enough. Care does not just occur for patients with chronic conditions at the doctor’s office. To provide better care and close the gap on chronic conditions, we must create better insights into patient care outside the clinic,” said David Kuraguntla, co-founder and CEO of Alio. “At Alio, we don’t rely on one-metric devices, use ‘off-the-shelf’ sensors, or look for insight from fitness trackers – Alio is designed to produce clinical-grade, accurate data, aggregated into actionable insights. Our mission is to provide peace of mind for patients in and – importantly – out of the clinical setting, empower patients to take back control of their lives, and prevent avoidable hospitalizations.”
