Singapore, Singapore, February 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Health Tech startup Citta.ai which specializes in AI-based remote patient monitoring solutions has appointed healthcare business conduit Elle Quan as Country Director for Philippines.
“According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases account for over 30% of deaths globally. We want to make a dent in that figure by enabling access to high-quality care, which currently is limited by a global shortage in cardiology experts. We are excited to welcome Elle as part of our senior team given her extensive experience in Health and her passion to enrich lives of Filipinos,” said Australian Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Callum Bir.
Citta.ai, rated among top three in the Healthcare segment of the "InSpreneur 2018" held in Singapore last month, has a three-year global expansion strategy which includes Philippines, the world’s 12th most populous country, as growth priority.
Healthcare providers are able to use Citta’s SaaS based platforms to rollout their self-branded Cardiac, Diabetic or Remote Patient Monitoring solution within minutes; while home-care providers enable care-givers to assist patients in health screenings.
Citta.ai will democratize diagnosis using Artificial Intelligence (AI) focused on identifying and diagnosis of abnormalities of heart rhythm such as atrial fibrillation, and other severe arrhythmia, cardiac output and ejection fraction from single lead ECG and PPG wearable devices.
“A study published at the International Journal of Cardiology (Reyes Et al, November 2016) estimates only 14 cardiologists per million in the Philippines. Citta’s AI research and its application will help ease the severe shortage of cardiologists in the country. Having your own AI-based cardiologist on hand available all the time will impact every Filipino family with a cardiac patient to look after,” said Ms Quan. “We look forward to working with hospitals and health insurance companies to complement their efforts to engage their patients better, reduce hospitalization, lower overall health costs while creating new revenue streams.”
Ms Quan brings deep-insights from working closely with senior health executives in hospitals, pharma and medtech, research institutions and public sector throughout Asia.
