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.
Given the strategic relevance of information, networks and computer systems security, Cardio On Line Europe Srl has an high-level policy to structure the guidelines of a path aimed at improving Information security management. For this purpose, Cardio On Line Europe Srl recognizes the need to develop, maintain, monitor and constantly improve an information security management system (ISMS), in compliance with the UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC27001:2017.
In 2010, Cardio On Line Europe expanded its organizational structure with the implementation of a Central Unit dedicated exclusively to cardiac and blood pressure monitoring in telemedicine; with more than 200,000 reports made in a very short time from the disassembly of the device, the Holter Division, which has become a market leader and a strategic unit for the Company, provides Holter reporting software, equipment and services in pharmacies, General Practitioners’ offices, diagnostic and home care centers, polyclinics, hospitals, nursing homes, RSAs and others.
For the large-scale development of Telemedicine, it is necessary to build trust in Telemedicine services and encourage their acceptance by healthcare professionals and patients. In this context, information to the patient regarding the use of Telemedicine with the benefits that can derive from it and the training of healthcare professionals and patients for the use of new technologies are fundamental aspects. Direct training to the customer, at the Cardio On Line Europe headquarters or in FAD (Distance Training), is a UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 certified method.
