Biotricity is at the leading edge of professional and personal remote medical monitoring

Chronic diseases are growing at an alarming rate as we continue to live longer. This creates an ever expanding burden on our healthcare system as costs continue to rise for ongoing and long-term treatment. One of the single most effective approaches to dealing with such costs is to improve patient engagement by enabling individuals to manage their condition. Unfortunately, there are few tools available that are clinically accurate and tailored to specific chronic conditions that individuals can utilize for disease management.

 

 

Biotricity is advancing the capabilities of remote biometric technology to improve the lives of people with chronic medical conditions. Our approach is to develop complementary technologies for diagnostic use by physicians and long-term use by individuals. Our goal is to further progress against a number of chronic diseases by developing solutions that are clinically accurate and tailor made for specific diseases.

 

 

Our first target is the world’s leading cause of death: cardiovascular disease. We’ve created real-time, high-precision remote monitoring technology used in medical research. Building upon our expertise, we’ve now developed Bioflux,1, 2 a remote cardiac monitoring system for use by physicians in testing and diagnosis. We’re also developing a personal monitoring device, Biolife, that will empower individuals to better manage their conditions and enhance the quality of lives.

Improving care, reducing costs

The challenge is immense, but so is the opportunity for transformative change that will improve patient outcomes and curb healthcare costs.

More than half of adults in the US suffer from at least one chronic disease, and almost one-third have multiple chronic conditions.3 Seven of the top ten causes of death in the US are chronic diseases,4 with cardiovascular disease alone responsible for 30.8% of all deaths.5

In most cases, these conditions are preventable through lifestyle changes. However, the hard reality, with which doctors contend every day, is that the effects of these conditions often manifest too gradually for people to recognize. It falls to the healthcare system to deal with these diseases after they’ve advanced to a serious stage, often at great financial cost. It was recently estimated that 86% of all healthcare spending in the US goes to the treatment of those with chronic diseases.3

It is therefore vital to develop technology that enhances doctors’ ability to detect and diagnose these conditions—and to do so early enough for treatments to have their greatest effect. It is also crucial to follow that up with personal devices that provide feedback reinforcing patients’ adherence to doctors’ instructions after diagnosis.

Achieving these twin goals is Biotricity’s mission.

With the development of our Bioflux and Biolife systems, we’re tackling cardiovascular disease. We will move forward from there, applying our proven expertise in remote medical monitoring to the development of professional and personal systems that will aid in the fight against other chronic diseases as well.
