Every year, millions of people around the world are affected by heart disease and its complications. We hear about it on T.V, read about it in the newspaper, and listen to it on the radio. Sometimes it is someone we know.
We are shocked and worried for a while, then we forget about it until the next victim comes to our attention. Few of us realize that the complications of heart disease can be avoided by early screening tests and regular checkups with a health care professional. This is all the more important if you have a strong family history of heart disease.We have many reasons to procrastinate about visiting our doctor—it is expensive to do screening tests, we don’t want to wait in a physician’s office with sick people, we have more worthwhile and entertaining activities to pursue. When we are still healthy, we don’t give much thought to our health. Then, one fine day we end up in the emergency room, the place we dread.
Breaking out of this vicious cycle is not easy and there are no miracle cures for heart disease and its complications. But, thanks to the rapid growth of technologies, today it is possible to have a screening test in the comfort of our home, and home health care is now affordable.
We were motivated to start Cardioventis by the struggle physicians and many healthcare facilities face in running their businesses. We realized we could improve healthcare practices with our own experience as practicing physicians. We started the company during the last quarter of 2009. Our goal was to make a business of converging medicine with technology. The objectives are to educate people, support them with technology, and help them keep healthy with these technologies. We work to answer the vexing question, “How can I sleep better at night and not worry I’m going to have a heart attack?”
Along the way, we decided that making a difference to people’s lives was as important as profit. Sharing the profits with other worthwhile non profit organizations through a 3-I program was envisioned. We’re inspired by those who go into business for the benefit of others.
Our work environment skips the formal corporate ladder in favor of a place where anyone with ideas can freely share them—this helps us stay on the edge of the curve, and ensures our customers always come first. We keep ourselves lean with hands-on managers and no red tape, allowing ourselves the freedom to help our customers without the hassle of board room decisions.
We want to let noble thoughts come to us from every side, so that we can develop and design innovative methods that allow health care professionals to perform more efficient, accurate ameliorative procedures to improve not only people’s health, but also general wellness.
