Strong Data Support for Weak Hearts

When a heart fails, various reasons can come together—whether pressure overload, hereditary factors, environmental influences or disturbances in the immune system. Computer scientists at Hasso Plattner Institute are helping physicians with a new IT system to evaluate the risk factors for heart failure and to assess them comprehensively.

With a demonstrator, HPI shows the integration and interactive analysis of relevant data in an Internet platform at CeBIT. It allows clinical doctors to make treatment decisions faster and to support them more broadly. The SMART project, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Research, aims to develop customized prevention and treatment strategies for individual patients. This objective primarily involves early detection of the complex causes of heart failure and their interaction. On the basis of in-memory database technology, researched and developed at HPI, it is possible for predictions to be made about the possible course of the disease and for therapeutic successes to be achieved.
