India-based heart care platform Numen Health has partnered with Aster Hospitals to provide preventive and rehabilitative medical attention to heart patients in their homes. reported that the Numen Health programme is designed to help patients recover from heart problems more quickly and return to their normal lives.

The programme includes an online concierge that provides support and guidance on medication, exercise and other aspects of recovery.

It is designed to expedite patient recovery and assist users in resuming their regular routines more quickly.

More than 33% of India’s adult population and more than 300 million people worldwide are at significant risk of cardiovascular diseases.

The initiative by Numen Health and Aster Hospitals aims to bridge the gap between the demand and supply of cardiac rehab slots in India.

Numen Health CEO and co-founder Pallav Singh said: “In this collaboration, we are working with Aster Hospitals to deliver an all-encompassing and innovative cardiac care programme, facilitating patients to seamlessly transition from the hospital to their homes with speed, security and efficiency.

“Our approach is rooted in cutting-edge technology, underpinned by research-based evidence, allowing for constant patient monitoring right from the comfort of their own homes.

“This proactive monitoring significantly reduces the need for emergency interventions and alleviates the strain on the healthcare system.”

Aster Hospitals interventional cardiologist Dr Sunil Roy said: “People often associate heart failure with extreme and fatal outcomes, when indeed, it is merely a ‘weak heart’ condition that is extremely manageable with the right knowledge and lifestyle.

“Timely, consistent, and accurate medical support and care can help patients avoid further deterioration that could lead to chronic and severe conditions over time.”
