A new kind “digital” medical software could be the answer to a shortage of health care professionals and help save thousands from dying.
Epic software is a technology developed by a company in Denmark and has been widely adopted in Europe.
Its software, called Epic, is being used by more than 50 hospitals and other health care providers in Europe and the United States.
Epics software is being developed by an Amsterdam-based company, Epic Medica, and it uses an approach called deep learning.
In deep learning, computers use a huge amount of data to learn new patterns from massive amounts of data.
Deep learning is particularly powerful in machine learning.
“Epic Medica is very much in a position where we can use deep learning to help us with the care of patients,” said Peter Hildebrandt, CEO of Epic.
Hildebrandts software is part of the Epic software suite that is being offered by the company.
“In many respects, Epic medica is like a combination of all of the existing technologies, with a different focus,” he said.
Hillebrandts technology is being put to use to help doctors in Europe, including in England, help patients by using it to detect heart attacks.
EpiCare, a company that makes EpiCare® and EpiPasses, says it uses Epic Medicas software to help detect heart disease.
“This technology is going to help people who need help with their heart health.
That’s a very important part of our future,” said Kevin Wootton, vice president of marketing and communications for EpiHealth.”
The vast majority of patients who will benefit from the technology are people who are at very high risk of developing a serious health condition,” said Hillebrandt.”
They may not have any other options,” said Wootston.
The EpiMedica software was developed by Danish software firm Epic Media.
The company said the software is now being used to help diagnose and treat many other conditions.
“We are very proud of this technology and we are really excited to bring it to the community of patients, their doctors and other healthcare professionals in Europe,” said Paul Van Houten, director of business development at Epic Medias.
Hilted heart attacks are a growing problem in Europe because the use of technology to detect them has fallen by 80 per cent in the last decade.
“It is going down but it is not going up, which is worrying,” said Van Houtsen.
Epidemiologist and expert at Epic Health, Janine Gollesen, says her company has had more than 4,000 patients with heart attacks diagnosed and treated with EpicMedica technology.
“When we get these patients to our clinic they are usually a very, very different case,” said Gollisens co-director of the Heart and Stroke Institute at the University of Oxford.
“They’ve got a lot more questions to ask, which we’re very grateful for.”
The company says the technology has been used in more than 10 million heart attack patients in the U.K., France, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Finland and Norway.
The technology also helps detect other medical conditions such as pneumonia, which can often be treated by other means.
EpiciMedica says the software has helped save thousands a year in hospital costs.
“With this new technology, we can now get a more accurate diagnosis of patients with more complex conditions,” said Joerg Büntgen, EpicMedia CEO.
