JSS University, a medical sciences university in India, and iMedrix, an mHealth developer, have jointly announced the formation of an Innovation Centre in Connected Cardiac Care at the University's main campus in Mysore.

Because of the rate at which Cardiovascular and other diseases are increasing in India, the partners have said that this center 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.

“Acting early in Cardio Vascular disease development is essential to preventing an early death and extending life,” said Professor Dr. Nagaraj Desai, cardiologist, a principal in the formation of the center. “Connected Cardiac Care from this Centre will benefit 1000s of patients and save many lives by timely intervention. Integrated care means that the patient gets comprehensive advice in a single visit.”

The Centre will work with advanced use models of iMedrix's KardioScreen technology, through which asymptomatic, symptomatic and acute care patients will be evaluated to identify abnormalities requiring further treatment. This process is designed to bring new protocols and provide more insights into the cardiac care for both individuals and for community. 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, Ophthalmology and Podiatry plus nutrition and wellness guidance. Post-operative patients can also reduce or avoid follow-up visits using the connected care model.

“The advent of digital, connected technologies in medicine holds immense potential. JSS University is pleased to have formed a first of its kind Centre in India,” said Dr. B.N.Suresh, Vice Chancellor, JSS University. “We will pioneer new models of integrated and affordable, preventive and predictive cardiac care for the population of this region.”

"iMedrix is pleased to be a part of this Centre and contribute our unique cloud enhanced mobile Cardiac care solution," said Srikanth Jadcherla, Chairman, iMedrix, "We are fortunate to drive the next wave of innovation in mHealth under the guidance of renowned medical experts at JSS, making health care mobile, accessible and affordable."
