By transforming the process of health assessment from being done point-in-time to continuous and dynamic in a home setting, the hospital operator seeks to give healthcare providers the tools to predict the risk of cardiac disease in their patients and initiate early intervention, Apollo said.
This allows physicians to design and provide a patient with a personal care plan and digitally monitor patient compliance and objectively measure progression, with recommended lifestyle modifications and improvement in wellness and health vitals to reduce the risk of cardiac disease, the hospital operator added.
