US: The world’s first HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)-compliant mobile application for cardiac patients and high-risk cardiac patients has been launched for the US market. Developed by Israeli Danny Oberman, the app is known as CathMaps+ and provides emergency assistance by integrating a patient’s cardiac history with an interactive map of Cath Labs.
CathMaps+, owned by Kickstart LLC, is available for most Android and iOS users, and provides cardiac patients with tailored emergency tools in case of a follow-on incident, as well as GPS mapping of the nearest catheterisation labs in many countries around the world. It also allows cardiologists fast access to critical medical history in an emergency, ensuring more informed, personalised and effective treatment. CathMaps+ is the only app to integrate a patient’s cardiac history with an interactive map of catheterization facilities throughout most of the world. While CathMaps+ is private, with user permission, information can be shared with loved ones, caregivers, or emergency professionals. “By creating and launching the CathMaps+ app, it is my hope that heart disease patients and their families will be equipped with a sense of normalcy and peace of mind as they go about their daily lives, and even travel,” said Oberman.
