Enabling medical professionals to work from home
medical workers in home office

This is how to make devices and software location-independent.  During the pandemic, many medical workers have been working from home in order to protect themselves and others from infection. Unfortunately, this approach brought with it one major challenge – in most situations, devices and software are located and hosted in hospitals and clinics, not in […]

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) – why is it so important?

The World Health Organization reports that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide [1]. One of these diseases is heart failure – a condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to the organs in our body. This results in a deficiency of oxygen and nutrients in the cells of […]

Data overload in cardiology
Data overload in cardiology

The pandemic has highlighted the challenge of data overload in cardiology: after just ten months, 87,000 scientific publications have addressed Corona and COVID-19. Monitors from “Retraction Watch” identified hundreds of articles that were retracted, including some from leading journals. In addition, beyond the pandemic, physicians from all disciplines find it challenging to keep up to […]

Cardiomatics raises $3.2 million in seed funding

What cameras and ECG machines have in common The 20th century was the golden age of analog photography. An amazing 85 billion physical photos were taken around the world in 2000. However, photo cameras back then were large, expensive, and complicated to use. But then, in November 2000, the first camera mobile phone was released, […]

Paving the way for better ECG analysis in children

Doctors increasingly use software for automatic assessment of ECG Holter monitoring signals in adult patients, but no software has been developed for children so far. Cardiomatics and the Medical University of Warsaw are on the way to a breakthrough in paediatric cardiology. They are developing an internationally innovative tool for automatic assessment, analysis and interpretation […]

The impact of artificial intelligence on today’s mainstream clinical practice

Accurate diagnosis, improved workflow, better patient outcomes, and reduced administrative burden on physicians—medical-grade algorithms in cardiology are demonstrating promising results. AI-based ECG analysis enables doctors and healthcare managers to address various priority objectives. Precision is only a tiny part of the story. Searching for abnormalities in the components of ECG signals is the bread and […]

Swiss cardiologists and Cardiomatics algorithms fight the “epidemic” of our time.

An interview with Prof. Michael Kühne and Prof. Christine Meyer-Zürn – The SWISS-AF-Burden study leaders from the University of Basel.   The SWISS-AF-Burden study is underway at the University Hospital Basel, in which the impact of atrial fibrillation burden on incidents such as stroke, heart failure and dementia is being investigated. Broader knowledge about patients […]

Cybersecurity in healthcare – how to avoid data theft?

Medical devices and electronic health records have become a way to facilitate better patient care. The substantial development of technology used in an increasing number of hacking and ransomware attacks has made cybersecurity a priority in health care. Are we ready for the worst? Hacking incidents might have many varied, harmful effects for healthcare organizations, […]

Hospitals are redesigning workflows in cardiology but the real shift requires trust in AI

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the strengths and weaknesses of today’s healthcare systems. With the knowledge that human resources, time, accuracy and coordination are essential for effective care, how can we improve standards of care in cardiology? New tools to fix what is not working The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted shortages of healthcare workers, bottlenecks […]

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 […]
