Heart for Sustainable Healthcare

First DCVA-call

Heart for Sustainable Healthcare

New medical technology is essential for early recognition, better monitoring and faster treatment of cardiovascular disease. For this reason, The Dutch CardioVascular aliance, and the Innovative Medical devices initiative (IMDI) lauched their new funding program.

Measuring biomarkers, identifying acute problems and monitoring symptoms, while the patient is at home and the doctor in the hospital. These are examples of new medical technology. It allows doctors to quickly identify deterioration and prevent serious damage to the heart or vessels. This way, the burden of cardiovascular disease can be reduced to keep healthcare affordable and sustainable.

Joint call

This call is directly in line with our strategy, focusing on the earlier detection or earlier recognition of (aggravation of) cardiovascular diseases and the objectives of IMDI focused on medical technology for affordable and sustainable healthcare. The Dutch Heart Foundation, ZonMw, NWO-TTW en NWO-MVI have invested a total of € 5.000.000 in this call.
