Health Start-Up Cardiotrack To Set Up Operations In Mexico
BENGALURU: Bangaluru-based healthcare start-up Cardiotrack, which provides predictive diagnosis for cardiovascular diseases, on Wednesday said it has entered into an agreement with a Mexican state to set up operations and also invest in a unit to train people.
A Letter of Intent (LOI) to this effect was signed with the Governor of Nuevo Leon, Jaime Heliodoro Rodríguez, Cardiotrack said in a statement here.
"Cardiotrack will set up operations in Nuevo Leon's capital Monterrey and also invest in a unit to train people. This collaboration will create close to 200 jobs in Nuevo Leon," the statement added.
Cardiotrack is an innovative IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) healthcare diagnostics solution designed to fulfill the basic requirements of primary healthcare centres (PHC).
Deployed at PHCs in emerging markets, including rural India, Cardiotrack, in the absence of a cardiologist, diagnoses and captures heart health data for their patients.
The platform enables instantaneous cardiac monitoring and flow of information through Android-based smart devices between a physician and a cardiologist, thus providing primary healthcare physicians in non-urban areas a way to detect early signs of cardiovascular disease in their patients.
"We are pleased to have partnered with the Governor of Nuevo Leon for setting up operations in his state. Our focus is primary care and improving the quality of the diagnostics available at PHCs," said Ashim Roy, Co-founder, Cardiotrack.
