When Ziad Sankari was 17 years old, his father died of a heart attack. That tragedy could have been avoided if there had been a way to monitor his heart from remote location. Sankari has now founded CardioDiagnostics, a company that specializes in developing cardiac monitoring products and services for doctors and patients.
Unlike a traditional portable recording device, which heart patients strap on for a day or two to record heart activity that their doctor analyzes at their next appointment, the CardioDiagnostics innovation allows cardiologists to monitor patients remotely for extended periods of time. Perhaps most importantly, physicians have real-time access to that data through monitoring centers in the United States and Lebanon.
They are using Microsoft Azure as it literally transformed their ability to create scalable, available and durable products. Read the full story here.
