India and iMedrix, a pioneer in mHealth, announced the formation of an Innovation Centre in Connected Cardiac Care at the University's main campus in Mysore.

diseases is spreading, this Centre will focus on an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to the early detection, prevention, acute care and follow-up of heart diseases and related co-morbidities such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension and abnormal lipid profiles.
