Connected cardiac care centre was inaugurated at the Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research here on Tuesday.

It is the first of its kind government centre to tackle heart disease in the country. The centre will use a technology called "KardioScreen”, a hub-and-spoke model to deliver connected cardiac care centres across various locations.

Patients can get their electrocardiograms done at any of the spoke centres and consult experts at the hub (Jayadeva hospital ) without having to travel the distance.

Dr C N Manjunath, director of the institute, said: “Heart disease has a disproportionately adverse effect on the poor sections of society. Using the KardioScreen, patients will be able to access our experts from all the connected centres. This can be potentially lifesaving in critical times and will also save the patients the burden of further travel”.

KardioScreen, by iMedrix, is a mobile health set-up which is able to have electrocardiograms performed anywhere by a semi-skilled operator and transferred to a remote specialist over the cloud.

Further, parametric analysis and AI reports help doctors identify and manage high-risk patients in a timely and effective manner.
