LindaCare, a software company specializing in the field of tele-monitoring solutions for chronic disease patients, has striken a partnership with The University Hospitals Leuven (UZ Leuven) to enhance the quality of patient care by improving the way patients with chronic heart disease with CIEDs receive follow-up care through tele-monitoring.

“LindaCare’s mission is to help healthcare professionals and hospitals reduce the cost of delivery of care and improve the quality of care and patient safety for chronic disease management, by simplifying patient follow-up through tele-monitoring,” said Shahram Sharif, CEO and founder of LindaCare.

LindaCare’s first version of the product is a web-based software platform for the tele-monitoring of patients with CIEDs and suffering from chronic heart failure (CHF) and cardiac arrhythmia; this accounts for an estimated total of about 10 million patients worldwide today. UZ Leuven, with about 2.000 beds and employing 9.000 professionals, has been providing high quality and innovative medical care for more than 75 years, and is considered to be one of the largest academic and most innovative hospital groups in Europe.

Moreover, the terms of the agreement extend the benefits to ‘nexuz health’, a medical collaborative alliance currently comprising 17 hospitals across the Flanders region. The collaboration agreement provides LindaCare with deep insight into current clinical practice around patient tele-monitoring while bringing innovative solutions to the clinicians at UZ Leuven to improve the quality of care.
