What Makes UAB Kilo Grupe’s Cardiovascular Disease Management App a Key Tool in Fighting Chronic Diseases
UAB Kilo Grupe has been in the digital wellness space for a long time now, and one of its leading health apps is the Cardi.Health app. This cardiovascular management app has become key to many users’ lifestyles in the prevention and regulation of chronic cardiovascular conditions. But how is the app supporting patients with chronic diseases and what makes it such a good choice?
Data from the American Heart Association shows that in 2020, 19 million deaths globally were down to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Cardiovascular disease is a general term that refers to any disease of the heart or blood vessels and encompasses diseases like coronary heart disease, aortic disease, strokes, and TIAs.
This is an alarming number of deaths, and an 18.7% increase since 2010, suggesting that diseases of the heart are becoming shockingly prevalent worldwide. Enter: KiloGrupe’s Cardi.Health app.
Kilo Health is a member of the American Heart Association’s Center for Health Technology and Innovation, so when they created the Cardi.Health app, it came as a shock to no one that an impressive new tool for maintaining heart health had just entered the market.
The app is designed to make sense of all the data you feed it regarding your heart. It connects to a range of health monitors, including blood pressure cuffs and ECG monitors so that your data is always accurate and up to date.
The data input into the app is easy to present to your healthcare provider, making appointments run more smoothly. On top of this, Cardi.Health uses advanced AI to offer in-depth, personalized analysis of your health results.
This trend analysis is a great way to see what is working and what isn’t, and it informs the individualized lifestyle advice offered by the app. This guidance includes diet plans, workouts, and many other ways to improve and maintain heart health.
The app is customizable to each user, meaning that whatever condition they have been diagnosed with, the Cardi.Health app will work for them. It comes with medication reminders too, so you’ll never accidentally forget your pills again.
Research originally published in Acta Informatica Medica found that trend analysis was a helpful tool for cardiologists in treating chronic heart failure, and a recent Nature publication stated that digital health innovations were part of the new normal in the treatment of CVD––suggesting that KiloGrupe is ahead of the curve with this innovative app.
Furthermore, a study recently published in the Journal of Cardiac Failure noted that the use of digital interventions had a modest but positive effect on the outcomes of patients with heart failure. While the researchers were hesitant to link cause and effect, they did state that digital health interventions for heart health warranted further study.
All of the above research offers formal and conclusive evidence that digital health apps, like UAB Kilo Grupe’s Cardi.Health, can help CVD patients to maintain their condition from home and potentially improve outcomes, treatment, and prevention of heart conditions. We think the Cardi.Health app sounds like a fantastic way to tackle one of the biggest killers on the planet.
