Cardiology

Connected cardiology begins here

The need for integrated technology is greater than ever

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be the leading cause of death and disability in the world today: It affects people from all spectrums of life. Low and middle income countries are now equally affected as affluent countries, as CVDs are present across gender and age.  Technology, real-time data and population health management, can be a key to addressing CVDs, and ensuring a heart-healthy population the world over.

Shaping the future of healthcare together

Dr. Scher
Five ways digital tech will improve CVD outcomes

     

Of the estimated 16 million annual deaths under the age of 70 from non-communicable diseases, a whopping 37% are due to CVD. Digital technology however, is making healthcare more participatory and a partnership.  Easy to use digital technologies and easy to interpret data layered with AI, will have a significant impact in the prevention, management and research into CVD.

Healthcare's Malthusian Crisis

 

“By 2030 the annual global burden of death from ischaemic heart disease, stroke and hypertensive disease is predicted to increase by over 20% to more than 19 million. And, unless the trend is reversed, the cost burden is predicted to exceed 1 trillion USD per year by 2035.  In this case, what we need to consider is if we can use technology to prevent heart disease when it is preventable, and to stave it off or reduce it when it is not.”

Getting to the heart of the problem

What does ‘the right way’ actually mean with connected technology and it’s effects on CVD?  By 2025, the World Heart Federation has pledged to help reduce premature mortality caused by CVD by 25%. It’s a big goal but, if we learn to employ connected care technology in the right way, it’s also an achievable one.

Informatics, at the heart of healthcare

Your patients’ lives are a continuum with multiple cardiovascular incidents happening throughout their lifetimes. Each and every one of your patients has a history of symptoms, tests, diagnoses, and treatments that makes that patient different from any other. Shouldn’t the tools you use to care for these unique individuals reflect this?"
