The HiGHmed Use Case Cardiology

The cardiology use case will enable the collection and transfer of data from wearable, implanted and connected medical devices to the HiGHmed data centres. HiGHmed will contribute to the reduction of mortality among patients with a high risk for heart failure by integrating longitudinal data from hospitals, health insurance companies, new sensors and patient-reported outcome into the HiGHmed IT architecture. This way, the consortium aims at finding new ways to identify and treat high-risk patients at an earlier stage by generating highly specific and comprehensive data sets through mobile diagnostic devices capturing data from long-term monitoring and measurements.
