Cardio On Line Europe’s mission is the development of Telecardiology; in 2004 an Operating Center has been activated, physically controlled 24 hours a day for 365 days a year by Specialized Technicians and Cardiologists that in real time report the exams received and offer their qualified advice on line. In the same year Italy’s most advanced Telecardiology project has been launched, a project which connected a network of 311 stations of 118’s service located within the entire Puglia’s region territory. The telecardiology system is reliable and easy to use and allows any user, equipped with a portable electrocardiograph, to record in a few seconds, and in any place especially, an electrocardiogram with 12 standard leads, ready to be transmitted to the Operating Center where he would immediately receive a teleconsultation.
