MIDI's mission will be to deploy the steps of its DevelopmentDNA™ process to the program and discern the Next Generation Platform's (NGP) : design, engineering, system innovation, functionality, usability, procedural performance, usage ceremony, intuitive operation procedures, human factors engineering, supporting App and Cloud components, considering all outlined circumstances. The primary goal of the collaboration is that the NGP adds health monitoring and medication reminders to the existing safety monitoring capability. The Next Generation Platform is currently underway for the collection and routine measurement of a user's vitals such as monitoring of blood pressures, oxygen levels and more to integrate into its existing platform. (See prior PR for more info : https://finance.yahoo.com/news/whsi-acquires-cutting-edge-backend-123000564.html).

MIDI's team of experts in electronics, firmware, software and user interface design will generate innovation for the advanced NGP. MIDI will define optimized human interface tied to procedure, while leveraging their knowledge of HMI to generate the optimal usage ceremony for caregiver and dealer. Their methodologies will provide a fresh and novel framework for innovation. The NGP will be technologically advanced, affording a seamless experience that is rapid/efficient/effective. MIDI's DevelopmentDNA™ process will achieve the optimum technology and integration, procedural performance with enhanced physiological capture interface.

Peter Pizzino, the President of Wearable Health Solutions Inc. said: "As MIDI utilizes its deep understanding of VOC (Voice of the Customer) and HMI (Human Machine Interface) to the NGP, MIDI will be cross‐pollinating and applying their expert engineering and design disciplines to the effort.
