BENGALURU: Cardiotrack, the med-tech company that develops AI-based diagnostic solutions for cardiac care, has teamed up with Bengaluru-located Columbia Asia Hospitals to help address the urgent need for timely diagnosis and treatment of cardiac ailments.
Cardiotrack will extend its hand-held device powered by AI to Columbia Asia Hospitals’ cardiac care team to diagnose heart health problems.
Cardiotrack will capture clinical grade ECG data using a technology that ensures data portability through smart devices. The technology is capable of eliminating time lapse between diagnosis and treatment – a life-saver in most cases.
Speaking about the company’s association with Columbia Asia Hospitals, Ashim Roy, CEO, Cardiotrack, said, “When it comes to cardiac care, India has essentially focussed on curative treatments and surgical interventions. However, to deal with the mammoth task at hand effectively, the emphasis needs to be on prevention and early diagnosis. At an institutional level, this calls for collaborations between hospitals and healthcare solution providers to ensure timely and affordable diagnosis for patients across socio-economic strata. It gives us great pleasure to have a global hospital such as Columbia Asia use our product. By joining hands with Columbia Asia, we hope to make Cardiotrack’s portable and digitized diagnostic solution accessible to a large number of people.”
Reiterating the significance of the association, Pratyush Srivastava, General Manager – Columbia Asia Hospital – Whitefield said, “We at Columbia Asia pride ourselves in providing timely care to our patients. This portable device will definitely help increase the number of corporate and outstation camps we conduct, in turn helping us diagnose cardiac risk at an early stage and provide timely solution.”
