Through this partnership, KHLC and Heartnet aim to implement routine screening programs focused on early detection of CVD and prompt initiation of treatment. This proactive approach is expected to reduce the mortality rate in Eastern India.

In response to a concerning surge in heart attack cases among younger individuals in India, Heartnet India, a provider of Asaan, an IoT-based cardiac care solution, has entered into a strategic partnership with Kolkata Heart Lung Centre & Research Institute (KHLC) to elevate cardiac healthcare services in West Bengal and Eastern India.

The collaboration aims to provide advanced cardiac care and infrastructure while focusing on the prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) in the region.

Recent data indicates a troubling trend of increasing cardiovascular diseases affecting younger adults aged 30 to 45, signalling a shift from the previously observed prevalence among older individuals.

Eastern India has witnessed a higher incidence of cardiac cases compared to other regions in the country, emphasising the need for dedicated efforts in CVD prevention and intervention.

Dr Sunip Banerjee, founder-CEO & chief cardiologist at KHLC, said, “We aim to take cardiac screening to the grassroots level in West Bengal and Eastern India with the clinical expertise of KHLC, along with the technology backbone of Heartnet, to create 300 cardiac screening locations across the region. These centers will be supported and mentored by KHLC for clinical expertise, with the goal of reducing the fast-rising CVD disease burden.”

Through this partnership, KHLC and Heartnet aim to implement routine screening programs focused on early detection of CVD and prompt initiation of treatment. This proactive approach is expected to reduce the mortality rate in Eastern India.

Additionally, the two organisations plan to enhance healthcare infrastructure and improve access to medical services in the region, thereby easing the burden on patients and their families.

Arindam Sen, CEO and director, Heartnet India, said, “The association will help us build healthcare facilities through trained healthcare professionals in the region. The collective efforts also focus on promoting preventive measures and creating awareness about CVD. Campaigns and outreach programs can educate people about the risk factors and ways to prevent CVD. With collective efforts, we can reduce the burden of CVD in Eastern India and ensure a healthier future for all.”

In another similar development in cardiac care, Apollo Hospitals in Tiruchi introduced an AI-augmented Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging system to enhance cardiac care. The hospital has provided more precise and tailored treatment strategies for heart-related issues through this technology integration.
