SmartECG is a service for GPs and healthcare units that supports GPs in diagnosing heart patients.
SmartECG willl be ready for full scale market introduction in autumn 2018.
Cardiovascular Disease poses a serious health problem in the EU area and also globally.
Your experience and insights as a healthcare professional are important in developing the SmartECG service. We therefore invite you to our SmartECG Panel for Healthcare Professionals. More information here.
The pilot for the SmartECG service begins in late 2018, after clinical validation. The service will be available to healthcare clinics in Sweden using the Remote Diagnostic Service Platform provided by RemoteA Ab, and in the United Kingdom through RemoteA UK and our other partners.
Would you like to see SmartECG Service in a demonstration platfform? Please leave your contact information here and we will be in touch.

With the SmartECG service, patients receive a secondary-care level diagnosis of their heart problems at the primary health care stage.
This earlier detection of heart diseases can lead to better treatment results, better quality of life, and even more lives saved.
The SmartECG service is a fast and cost-effective way of screening patients and referring them to secondary care when needed, as well as monitoring diagnosed heart patients through their illness and recovery in primary care.
Early detection of heart disease can lead to lower treatment costs.
SmartECG is a low-cost service.
The report is available within minutes after the ECG data from an ECG monitoring device is loaded into the SmartECG service. The analysis is based on an algorithm i.e. artificial intelligence that automatically interprets ECG data, selects the most important results and supports GPs in making the diagnosis and treatment decisions.
The algorithm is based on a huge cardiological data bank (1.5 million hours of heart monitoring data of more than 90,000 patients) compiled by RemoteA Ltd.
In addition to the automatic analysis, the GP can get a cardiologist’s diagnosis either through the SmartECG service or from his/her own healthcare unit.
Healthcare professionals connect the monitoring device to the computer and upload ECG data to the SmartECG service
The automatic analysis report is delivered directly to the GP’s computer, laptop or mobile device within minutes
The automatic analysis report can also be automatically transferred to the patient data records
In the near future, ECG data will transfer automatically from the monitoring device to the SmartECG service
Healthcare units can choose how to integrate the SmartECG service into their clinical pathways that lead to a diagnosis. There are several options to integrate it:
All in all, SmartECG supports clinical decision making and enhances co-operation between GPs and cardiologists
SmatECG will be compatible with both rest and event monitoring devices
Healthcare clinics will be able to use it with their existing ECG monitoring devices, which can thus be put to a more efficient use
In the piloting phase in 2018, the SmartECG service will provide automatic analysis reports from Holter monitoring devices
Compatibility will be further developed in co-operation with ECG device manufacturers
By 2020, the SmartECG service will analyse ECG data from virtually any ECG monitoring device
The SmartECG service will be a medically validated tool for healthcare by the CE and FDA
The validation process will start in the spring of 2018 and the piloting phase is expected to start in the autumn of 2018
