JSS University, one of the premier medical sciences universities in India 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.
Given the rate at which the epidemic of Cardio Vascular Diseases and life style diseases is spreading, this 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 advanced use models of iMedrix's revolutionary KardioScreen technology, through which asymptomatic, symptomatic and acute care patients will be evaluated to identify abnormalities requiring further treatment. This process will 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.

"Connected Cardiac Care from this Centre will benefit 1000s of patients and save many lives by timely intervention.
