How eHealth is improving health care

Patients being monitored remotely, sensors and smartphones transmitting data via Bluetooth, Artificial Intelligence analysing ECGs and providing risk assessments: eHealth is the future.

But what does that mean? Are machines taking over healthcare? Do patients never have to visit the hospital again? And what happens to our data that’s being collected, is it safe?


We’re very excited that onsite meetings are back and we’re looking forward to meeting you face to face at EHRA 2022.

How Pre-Hospital Phase Studies Are Transforming Emergency Care

Ambulance studies are on the rise. Globally, cardiologists, funders and CRO's are coming together to perform pre-hospital phase trials with one main goal: to advance the commencement of treatment, before patients reach the hospital. Because those early minutes are crucial.

We’re talking to Prof. Arnoud van ‘t Hof, M.D., Ph.D., FESC, Head of the Department of Interventional Cardiology in the MUMC, Maastricht and the Zuyderland MC in Heerlen, The Netherlands. He’s been playing a key role in Diagram’s ambulance studies and is the Principal Investigator of the current CELEBRATE trial.
