Big data in cardiology

Dear Sir or Madam,

Results of examinations, lab samples and the administration of drugs - all physicians have to archive and to analyze a large data flood during the course and treatment of a disease. But how should they record all of these data? The project "SMART" has created a new IT platform for cardiology, which is supposed to solve this problem. Read more about this in our article Big data in cardiology: IT platform to manage "flood of data".

Enjoy reading,

Lorraine Dindas
Editorial team

PS: IT and data are not only becoming more important for cardiology. Other areas have to deal with the new E-Health Act, too. Read more in our interview with Bernd Altpeter.

Photo: Doctor at laptop; Copyright:
The "Act on secure digital communication and applications in the health care system" (the e-Health Act in short) took effect on December 29 last year. By the end of 2018, hospitals and medical practices will be gradually introduced to the new features of the electronic health card and telemedicine. The Act intends to give attending physicians easier access to patient medical records and lighten the workload for medical staff as well.
