India is a huge country with one-fifth of the world’s population. However, when it comes to doctor to patient ratio the figure is substantially grim. According to a recent report by parliamentary committee on functioning of medical council of India – “The total number of doctors in India is much smaller than the official figure and we may have one doctor per 2,000 population, if not more.” Analysing these figures one can imagine the plight of doctors who works their day out to save precious lives of those in need. On the other side are the patients who perish due to their rural placements resulting in lack of infrastructure facilities. Tricog – A Bangalore based healthcare startup identified this problem and introduced its technology enabled instant ECG analysis solution making life easier for doctors and their patients.
Why Heart Attack?
According to a survey heart attack is one of the most common causes of death in India taking lives of 17.5 million people every year. It is also a matter of fact that most of these deaths are attributed to poor infrastructure facility and lack of specialist doctors at remote healthcare centers resulting to delayed diagnostics and treatment.
Tricog, founded in 2014, is not only revolutionising the way ECG analysis is done in India but also making heart attack diagnosis and coordination easier at remote healthcare centers across the country. Tricog uses technology, artificial intelligence and an expert medical team that works 24*7 to provide the fastest and most accurate real time diagnosis for heart patients. Tricog makes every received ECG go through multiple levels of check through algorithms, thereafter the accuracy of each ECG diagnosis is vetted by a qualified medical team of ECG experts specifically available at the centrally located Tricog hub round the clock.
Today, Tricog is providing its services to healthcare centers across India and working with some of the biggest brands in healthcare industry. The company aims at changing the 80% chance that a heart attack will take one’s life, to an 80% chance that the patient survives. Thus, guarding thousands of accelerating hearts for it’s pace everyday with a message – “Listening to your heat”.
