Bangalore-based start-up, Cardiotrack, which provides best-in-class predictive diagnosis for cardiovascular diseases announced today that it has expanded its presence in North India with its partnership with Gurgaon based multi-speciality hospital, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon. This expansion will consolidate Cardiotrack’s position as a leading provider of AI-based cardiac care solutions.
Cardiovascular-related deaths continue to be a cause for concern in India. More people die of heart diseases than respiratory diseases, tuberculosis, and cancer put together.
The partnership with Paras Hospitals is the right step forward to address the growing concern with regard to heart disease, and deliver cardiac solutions that are real-time and preventive in nature. A life saved from cardiovascular diseases is a family saved.
Speaking on the partnership, Dr. D.K. Jhamb, Director & HOD, Cardiology, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon said, “We are delighted to partner with Cardiotrack to reach out to a wide spectrum of population in Gurgaon and surrounding areas. By providing them with excellent preventive cardiac care we are working hard to ensure that the number of cardiovascular deaths is brought down.”
Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon has consistently noticed a steady rate of increase in the number of patients with heart problems in the scans that are done across their different hospitals. And the hospital chain is looking to reverse this worrying trend.
Cardiotrack will be deployed across all Paras centres. The hand-held IoT device that is driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI) will capture clinical grade ECG data using cutting-edge technology and ensure data portability through smart android-based devices.
Ashim Roy, Co-Founder and CEO, Cardiotrack said, “Heart diseases continue to be one of the main causes of death, globally and across age groups. 50% of these deaths can be averted if the delay in seeking the right medical advice is reduced. The best way to achieve this is preventive care and early diagnosis. We at Cardiotrack, pride ourselves on providing accurate and timely diagnosis for all cardiac related issues. Currently, Cardiotrack is present across India with leading hospitals adopting our technology to address the challenges in cardiac care. The partnership with Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon, is a step towards making cardiac care accessible to a larger number of people and thereby, saving lives.”
Headquartered in Singapore, Cardiotrack has a presence in over 15 countries including Myanmar, Mexico, Indonesia, Tanzania, Norway, Canada and Argentina among other countries. The pocket sized device has been well received by hospitals and primary health centres in tier 2 cities and rural areas.
The Cardiotrack platform is designed to fulfil all the basic requirements of a primary care clinic. Using Cardiotrack’s technology and AI platform, doctors can detect heart health problems accurately, consult specialists, refer and track patients, maintain medical history and start the intervention process. Cardiotrack platform includes multi-parameter, light weight healthcare IoT devices and mobile health software that helps to screen illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases and hypertension and helps doctors to perform diagnosis and then safely store the patient records.
The Cardiotrack device was launched in September 2015 and it has been deployed across India, Myanmar, Indonesia, Mexico and U.S.A. The primary reason for getting traction in the market has been affordability, ease of use and mobility that the product renders to its users. Most of the expensive health diagnostics products can only be operated in hospital environments, which are air-conditioned. However, working environment at the primary care facilities in the developing economies is different. The diagnostics sensors used in Cardiotrack function at extreme temperatures, and dust ridden and humid environments. The Cardiotrack platform is built to overcome limited availability of specialists, lack of transportation, infrastructure and power breakdowns that are common constraints in emerging economies and provide effortless remote patient management and disease care.
