THE TELECARE CENTER ANALYSES AND VERIFIES
A pulse curve was recorded using the "Preventicus Heartbeats" smartphone app and tested to reveal any cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation. Afterwards, the Telecare Center performes a medical-technological analysis of the recordings taken by the app.
Working at a Telecare Center, medical technicians specialized in the cardiac rhythm analysis of pulse-related data offer you:
DESCRIPTION OF THE STRUCTURED SCREENING PROGRAM FOR SPECIFIC DETECTION OF SPORADIC CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS
This program was designed with the technical objective of employing the user's own smartphone or smartwatch to detect sporadic cardiac arrhythmias occurring in outpatient settings under non-acute circumstances.
The "Preventicus Heartbeats” app used for this purpose is a clinically validated medical device.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that this app's underlying algorithm is capable of distinguishing cardiac arrhythmias (like atrial fibrillation) from regular heart rhythms with an accuracy of approximately 95%.
As part of this assessment, the medical technology staff of the Telecare-Center Ulm GmbH analyzes the recordings generated by the “Preventicus Heartbeats“ app. As far as possible, measurement and data collection errors were identified and the recorded data compared against a reference database. The aim was to determine the extent to which the analysis matched the statistical results. This assessment does not render—nor is it intended as a substitute for—any medical services.
LEGAL BASIS, TREATMENT AND EXCEPTION CLAUSE FOR DOCTORS
The technical and statistical assessment and possible correction of the data by the Telecare-Center Ulm GmbH is conducted by its staff possessing medical-technical training and education who are specifically trained in the rhythmological assessment of pulse-related data. However, this analysis is not a formal medical service, and as such, in not intended for decision-making in acute conditions or for real-time monitoring of vital functions, nor does it intervene in any existing guideline-compliant diagnostic pathways or therapeutic interventions. This assessment does not involve a diagnosis, but rather exclusively suggests a tentative suspicion with qualified informational intent. Under no circumstances should it be used as a substitute for any person-related diagnostics, consultation, care or treatment rendered by a physician.
