Bengaluru: JSS University, medical sciences university and iMedrix, a pioneer in mHealth, announced the formation of an Innovation Centre in Connected Cardiac Care at the University’s main campus in Mysore.
The Centre will focus on an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to the early detection, prevention, acute care and follow-up of heart diseases and related co-morbidities such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension and abnormal lipid profiles.
The Centre will pioneer mobile outreach for detection using iMedrix’s revolutionary KardioScreen technology which allows hundreds of patients to be screened in a single day and identify abnormalities requiring further treatment. Patients no longer need to travel to a hospital for a check up -Connected Cardiac Care brings the advice of medical experts to their doorstep. Patients requiring follow-up will be given appointments to visit the facility and receive integrated multi-disciplinary treatment across Cardiology, Emergency, Nephrology, Endocrinology, Opthalmology and Podiatry plus nutrition and wellness guidance.
