Hot Stuff: 10 Products At Microsoft Inspire

Samsung/BlueMetal Connected Care 

While it's not available to partners, BlueMetal's collaboration with Samsung around health-care connectivity was among the notable showcases on the Inspire show floor. Watertown, Mass.-based digital transformation specialist BlueMetal -- a division of Insight that is a top partner of Microsoft -- worked with Samsung to create a solution connecting patients with their care teams. Through development of solutions using Samsung's Gear S3 smartwatch and Galaxy Book 2-in-1 tablet -- along with Microsoft's Azure cloud -- physicians are able to send reminders to a patient's smartwatch, for instance, while patients can communicate back to their physician instantly.
