Cardiovascular diseases continue to be a leading cause of death in spite of the many advances made by medical science and technology. This statement is even more worrying when one looks at the heart health landscape of South Asia. According to Stanford Health Care people from this geography which comprises Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Maldives are four times more likely to get a heart attack before the age of 50.
Cardiotrack’s arrival and evolution could not have come at a more opportune time. By pioneering preventive cardiac care in India, it is on track to creating awareness about how critical damage to the heart is avoidable.
This cardiac care platform provides clinical grade readings on an Android smartphone to which it is connected via Bluetooth. But that’s just the beginning, because Cardiotrack is powered with AI capabilities which can make a diagnosis. A senior doctor at the well-respected Fortis Hospital in Delhi, India has certified these diagnoses as precise and accurate.
Cardiotrack AI can filter out abnormal scans, make automated and unbiased diagnoses and even detect rare conditions like Brugada Pattern.
The combination of IoT and AI makes Cardiotrack’s technology cutting edge and relevant in a world where there are too few cardiologists far too many patients.
Operational efficiency in cardiac care is another area that is desperately in need of a reboot. This in turn is closely tied to trust in the overall healthcare system which has in recent years taken a significant beating. By bringing in unbiased and accurate diagnosis, AI completely levels the playing field. Immediate benefits include scheduling of patients based on criticality and ensuring that the cardiologist’s time is well used.
With a robust database of scans that is growing at a considerable pace, Cardiotrack also offers heart health professionals valuable data on cardiac conditions that can lead to innovations in treatment. It is time to ensure that technology upends the scourge of heart diseases.
