Cardihab SMART CR, was developed by scientists at CSIRO’s digital health arm, known as the Australian eHealth Research Centre (AEHRC), a joint venture between CSIRO and the Queensland Government. The mobile health technology comes from a world first trial of a digital health intervention for people recovering from a heart attack, and was the first spin-out from the CSIRO’s ON accelerator program. Cardihab is partnering with leading cardiologists at Queensland Cardiovascular Group (QCG) to continuously optimise the product offering and has a clinical pipeline for broader use within primary and secondary prevention.
Cardihab’s platform is registered on the Australian Registry of Therapeutic Goods as a Class I Medical Device and is being implemented and used throughout Australia. Cardihab’s digital health programs makes Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) more convenient for patients and means clinicians are able to offer an alternative model of delivery so that more patients can participate. The data captured through the use of our CR and chronic disease management plans also provides valuable insight for clinical decision support.
