FUTURE AND NEW PROJECTS.
eKuore has strengthened its presence in the Telemedicine field, after achieving an agreement with SensiCardiac. eKuore and SensiCardiac will jointly work on an mHealth project.
SensiCardiac is a South African company that specialises in auscultation. SensiCardiac can save, send, and analyse heart sounds. It achieves this through its diagnostic algorithm, developed by them, that interprets the sound and determines whether there is a murmur in a patient.
One future project for eKuore is creation of a new platform for negative diagnosis, which will allow the sanitary professionals to detect when patient has any cardiac pathology. This tool won´t make a diagnosis, it will make easier to detect cardiovascular diseases.
