Data set of 2 billion heartbeats and growing allows Biotricity to scale faster and operate more efficiently with better automation, yielding growth and better margins in the future
REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2022 / Biotricity Inc. (NASDAQ:BTCY) ("Biotricity" or the "Company"), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, today announced a significant milestone of recording and analyzing over 2 billion heartbeats for Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia and a leading cause of stroke.
Bioflux®, Biotricity's high-precision, single-unit mobile cardiac telemetry device that provides real-time monitoring and transmission of the patient's ECG information, has captured billions of heartbeats to date, monitored in real-time by Bioflux's built in algorithms, certified cardiac technicians and benchmarked by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Leveraging the Company's proprietary AI, over 2 billion of the total heartbeats to date have been segmented for AFib analysis. According to Emergen Research, the global recurrent market for AFib is expected to reach USD$26 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 13.2%.
This large data set provides further benefits for patients, providers and ultimately clinical research for the future of predictive monitoring. Additionally, it allows Biotricity to scale faster and operate more efficiently, develop better automation, yielding growth and better margins in the future. The consistent focus on R&D and data capture has positioned Biotricity with a significant competitive advantage in key cardiac segments of the market, such as AFib.
Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Founder & CEO of Biotricity, commented, "AFib unfortunately continues to be a leading cardiac risk globally, growing annually at alarming rates. We have purposely designed our ecosystem to monitor the patient 24/7 while leveraging our innovative technology that uniquely combines AI with data and predictive capabilities. In doing so, we can create better and faster analytics for preventative patient monitoring and lifestyle management. For AFib specifically, the ability to significantly narrow the time of diagnosis reduces risk for the patient and liability for the provider, giving our technology the ability to positively impact millions who suffer with AFib globally. Additionally, as we continue to collect more data through our R&D efforts, our internal quality review process will scale and further increase in efficiency, allowing us to continue to grow our margins."
