Today is World Heart Day, when we realize how important it is to take care of our heart. We should not forget that the heart works tirelessly to keep us alive. If we neglect its health, we put ourselves at increased risk for heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases - the leading cause of death worldwide.
The most common cause of heart attacks is coronary artery disease (CAD), a narrowing of the coronary arteries caused by deposits of fat and calcium. CHD often causes no symptoms until it is too late. That's why regular screenings are important to detect and treat CHD early.
But how can you be sure whether you have CHD or not? Until now, there was no simple and accurate test that could reliably detect life-threatening narrowing of the coronary arteries. That has changed. Exploris Health has developed Cardio Explorer, an innovative, non-invasive heart test based on artificial intelligence that uses blood values, blood pressure and some other patient information to determine current risk.
Cardio Explorer is already available in various practices and clinics in Switzerland and Germany. It is reimbursed by health insurers such as Helsana or CSS via initial supplementary contracts.
At Exploris Health, we believe that artificial intelligence will transform medicine for the benefit of patients. We offer diagnostic and therapeutic solutions that focus on personalized medicine, high reliability and precision. In doing so, we aim to help promote patient health while reducing healthcare costs.
On World Heart Day, we encourage you to listen to your heart and take charge of your heart health. With Cardio Explorer, you can determine your current risk of heart attack and protect your life. Because health isn't everything - but without health, everything is nothing.
