AI-supported telemonitoring of cardiac condition

AI-supported telemonitoring of cardiac condition

  • Duration:

High-risk cardio patients need permanent monitoring, making a normal life difficult or impossible. AIWatch allows them to leave the hospital and live independently, yet safely, with a unique telemonitoring service. With a wearable sensor, high-risk cardio patients can return to their familiar environment while staying safe. Specifically trained nurses watch their ECG real-time and employ pre-arranged escalation procedures in an emergency, reacting as fast, or faster, as hospital staff. Thousands of patients already trust this growing service. AIWatch is adding another layer, diving between the data and the cardio nurses to allow the monitoring to scale up to more patients, all over Europe. Implementing trusted algorithms and always leaving the final decision in human hands, the AI assists the experts by pre-detecting known pathologies and alerting about unusual patterns.
