MicroPort® EP's Project "Cardiac Telemedicine System Based on Smart Device and Cloud" Wins 2016 Shanghai Internet of Things Innovative Product Award


Shanghai, China – On May 17, Shanghai MicroPort EP MedTech Co., Ltd. ("MicroPort® EP") was granted the 2016 Shanghai Internet of Things Innovative Product Award for its project "Cardiac Telemedicine System Based on Smart Device and Cloud." The project connects hospitals, patients, and physicians by ECG Internet of Things to share data and information regarding ECG collecting, disease diagnosis, professional guiding and post-operation follow-up, to enhance the efficiency of the use of medical resources.
Shanghai Internet of Things Industry Association aims to promote the development of Internet of Things. Under the direction of Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Information Technology, the association selects "Internet of Things Model Project" in Shanghai every year since 2013. In 2016, a total of 32 enterprises shared four categories of awards including Shanghai Internet of Things Model Project Award, Shanghai Internet of Things Innovation Award, Shanghai Internet of Things Key Product Award, and Shanghai Internet of Things Innovative Product Award. Xinhua Fu, Deputy Director of Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Information Technology, noted that Internet of Things is a strategic area Shanghai should seize to maintain its leading position in science and technology innovation. From the end of 2009, Shanghai has been planning to promote the development of the Internet of Things industry. Up to date, there are more than 700 Internet of Things enterprises in Shanghai, and the market value of its Internet of Things industry has reached 100 billion yuan with a growth rate of 30% annually.
MicroPort® EP's project "Cardiac Telemedicine System Based on Smart Device and Cloud" is the only one related to medical application among the eight projects that obtained Shanghai Internet of Things Innovative Product Award. The project is based on a mobile medical device of MicroPort® EP - ECG Patch. Firstly, the patch is put on the patient's chest to collect ECG, and then the data will be transmitted to a big data platform where it will be automatically analyzed and classified to provide reference for the doctors. If anything wrong is found, the device will recommend doctors according to the type of disease diagnosed and the doctor can use a special App to get connected with the patient and guide him/her to seek medical advice. Once the patient receives operation, the device can record follow-up data accordingly by collecting the patient's ECG regularly. The App also makes follow-up easier as it can directly show the electrocardiography or the electrocardiographic report once receiving the patient's ECG data.
Dr. Yiyong Sun, President of MicroPort® EP, said: "The award of the project ‘Cardiac Telemedicine System Based on Smart Device and Cloud' shows that smaller, wireless and smarter electrophysiological medical hardware has a promising future in the era of mobile internet. In the future, MicroPort® EP will further leverage the strength of MicroPort® to combine the professional medical service with modern IT technology including the Internet, the Internet of Things, big data analysis to develop more innovations of healthcare Internet of Things to benefit more patients and doctors."
