Qardio’s aim is to transform the healthcare industry with simpler, smarter and more effective solutions for everyone: patients, doctors and healthcare providers. We are happy to have them again as co-exhibitor at the WT | Wearable Technologies Show at MEDICA 2016 in Düsseldorf on November 14-17 in hall 15A23.
1) What are you going to present at MEDICA 2016? Can you give us a sneak peek?
At MEDICA we will be presenting our connected heart health monitoring ecosystem. Qardio offers solutions for both patients and their doctors with a single aim to improve health outcomes while lowering costs. We’ve done this by creating a suite of connected devices that allow for frequent home use and remote monitoring, paired with powerful analytics that frees up doctors’ time and maximizes patient care.
Our devices track a wide range of metrics such as blood pressure, weight, continuous ECG/EKG, respiratory rate, stress levels and more. Our devices work seamlessly with the users’ smartphone or tablet and allow for an automatic data sharing with their doctor or care provider.
This year, we launched QardioMD, a smart portal specifically designed for health practitioners. QardioMD not only collects patient generated data but uses powerful algorithms and groups sorting patients per priority so doctors know instantly who needs their attention and who is doing fine.
2) Who should visit your booth?
Qardio solutions are perfect for anyone interested in making healthcare simpler, easier, and more cost effective. Our products have been created to provide value to both patients and their providers, and actually close the gap between the two so they can work together towards better health. Our booth should be a destination for anyone interested in improving patient outcomes, lowering cost or growing their practice by incorporating medically accurate and innovative solutions Qardio provides.
3) It’s the second time you join us at MEDICA. What do you like about the trade fair?
MEDICA is a fantastic event to participate in because of its focus on the latest technologies in the medical field. As the leader in digital health solutions, Qardio looks forward to meeting more partners interested in cost effective, innovative solutions we offer.
4) QardioArm and QardioBase are sold now in Target’s “connected Care” sections. Can you tell us more about this cooperation?
Last spring, Target rolled out their “Connected Care” sections in a large number of their stores within their pharmacy department. We are honoured target selected Qardio as the category leader as we share in their vision of making important health data easily accessible to the consumer. In the past five years, there has been in a shift in the connected devices market from simple step counting to products that are able to provide medical grade data to a standard that it can be used in clinical treatment. Everyday technology allows us to do more, faster and with greater ease, and we are evolving connected medical devices to that level. It is a fantastic partnership, as you can imagine; Having a compact, easy to use blood pressure monitor that automatically stores your measurements readily available right where you pick up your hypertension medication provides an all-in-one solution.
5) What is your favorite wearable and why (besides your own)
Within the last year, the smartwatch has come a very long way, and it’s exciting to see where it will be able to go in the future. Now you can send a text message, make a bank transfer, or see your father’s latest blood pressure measurement, all without reaching for your phone or other device.
We had an interview with Marco Peluso, CEO at Qardio, last year about the importance of the ease of use and design aspects in the healthcare market. You can find the intereview here.
MEDICA is a “must” event for everyone busy in the healthcare market. We warmly invite you to drop by at our booth in hall 15 A23. Here you can find our co-exhibitors 2016 and some impressions from the previous years.
