When cardiologists get busy, automation is welcome

Artificial intelligence helps to reduce the burden on scarce resources Cardiology is confronted with a major challenge: with roughly 17.9 million fatalities each year, cardiovascular diseases are a major cause of death worldwide. Acute conditions such as myocardial infarction and stroke tie up a huge number of medical specialists; increased life expectancy is bringing about […]

Why should healthcare switch to cloud AI services?

Cloud Computing is a major trend in the context of IT. This technology comes with major advantages that have helped its penetration in various sectors of the economy. In healthcare too cloud technology is on the advance. The COVID-19 crisis with positive examples of its application has added thrust. Germany, with its legacy of reluctance to embrace the cloud due to data privacy considerations, is also witnessing significant progress.

Studies suggest a link between COVID-19 and cardiac arrhythmias. How can hospitals better monitor their patients?

Although clinical manifestations of COVID-19 are mainly respiratory, the virus also affects other organs, especially the cardiovascular system. The latest research suggests that in some cases, a cardiac arrhythmia occurs. Even health facilities with limited capacities can now quickly implement long-term ECG monitoring to follow up on possible cardiological events, and monitor patients with pre-existing […]

AI and AF: Seven Key Things for You to Know

Artificial intelligence (AI) can make detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) faster, easier, and less costly  Artificial intelligence reduces the routine work burden on physicians. In cardiology, the startup Cardiomatics analyzes data from Holter ECGs and provides physicians with analyses based on algorithms derived from scientific evidence.  AF is one of the contexts for this automated […]

The COVID-19 pandemic and the rationale for the use of long-term ECG monitoring

Introduction The outbreak of the novel coronavirus epidemic changed how healthcare systems around the globe act. Until today, we took for granted the ability to do multiple laboratory tests, such as long-term ECG monitoring or echocardiography. Now access to these facilities has been radically restricted as they are now being used for another purpose – […]

Stay safe when doing Holter tests

The impact of the coronavirus on medicine Nowadays, access to Healthcare Services is difficult due to the expansion of the Coronavirus. The majority of doctors from public hospitals are busy dealing with infected people. Some of these facilities no longer take patients because of staff shortages. But there are many diseases that cannot wait until […]

Fast and safe: cloud-based analysis of ECG long-term monitoring

Transformation in Medicine For Cardiomatics CEO Rafał Samborski, healthcare is going through a major transformation: “We live in times of a paradigm change. The trend leads away from examinations on-premise, heading towards decision and process support based on cloud systems. This is happening in medicine just as it is reshaping finance and logistics. – We […]

Demystifying Algorithms

There has been a lot of hype and hope around algorithms recently. But what can they do and what can they not do? How do they function? Can they feel like humans? Kasia Barczewska, Head of Research and Development at Cardiomatics, takes us on an eye-opening journey through Artificial Intelligence, algorithms and machine learning. How […]

The Cardiologist And AI

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about how medicine, patients and doctors can profit from Artificial Intelligence. In fact, AI is already supporting clinicians and citizens. Certified algorithms compliant with cardiological guidelines have gained the trust of doctors, supporting their daily work. One of these algorithms helps in ECG analysis. The following interview […]

How Heart Rate Variability Can Be Used to Improve Your Life

Heart function can be assessed using many parameters. One constantly gaining attention, mainly among people looking to track, understand and optimize their recovery and readiness, is heart rate variability (HRV). So, what is HRV all about and how can it help to improve your performance? The usefulness of HRV has been evaluated across multiple studies, […]
