Our main purpose is to help people live a healthy, happy and long life
We believe in challenging the status quo by thinking differently and innovative to try to eradicate sudden cardiac death and heart diseases.
In order to achieve this goal, we have to focus on innovation and therefore, create new technologies, tools and processes that enable us to measure things that have never been measured before. Knowledge, science and tekné comes from promoting these innovations that can last for decades and encourage further advancements for generations to come.
The scale of the problem
Noncommuniable diseases (NCDs) kill 41 million people every year and are responsible for 71% of all global deaths.
- Each year, 15 million people between the ages of 30 and 69 die from a NCD; more than 85% of these "premature" deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
- Cardiovascular diseases account for the majority of NCD deaths, over 17.9 million people every year. Cancer is the second biggest cause of death from NCD and kills 9.0 million annually.
- Cardiovascular diseases are the single biggest cost driver in the global healthcare system with an overall annual cost of €770bn. This is expected to rise up to €932bn by 2030.
- In low-resource settings, health-care costs for NCDs can be a large drain on household resources. The high costs of lengthy treatments can often result in loss of income and force millions of people into poverty on an annual basis.
- Poverty is closely linked to NCDs. The rapid rise in NCDs is predicted to impede poverty reduction initiatives in low-income countries.
Sustainable Development Goals
IDOVEN WORKS TO HELP ACHIEVE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs), an
urgent call for action for all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. Our mission is mainly focused on the objective 3.4 of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These goals are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for everyone.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes NCDs as a major challenge for sustainable development.
- Cardiovascular diseases threaten progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 3, which has a target to reduce premature deaths by one-third by 2030 (target 3.4).
- NCDs management interventions are essential for achieving the global target of a 25% relative reduction in the risk of premature mortality from NCDs by 2025, and the SDG target of a one-third reduction in premature deaths from NCDs by 2030.
How are we tackling this problem
Technology, medical team and investigation
One of the main goals of the United Nations 2030 agenda for sustainable development is to reduce by one third the number of deaths from non-communicable diseases (including heart disease). To understand the scale of the problem we need to be aware of the following facts:
- Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) kill 41 million people each year and account for 71% of all deaths worldwide.
- Every year, 15 million people between the ages of 30 and 69 die from NCDs; more than 85% of these "premature" deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
- Cardiovascular diseases account for the majority of NCD deaths, 17.9 million people per year. Cancer is the second leading cause of NCD deaths, killing 9.0 million each year.
- Cardiovascular diseases are the most important cost factor in the global healthcare system with a total annual cost of €770 billion. This is expected to rise to €932 billion by 2030.
With these facts in mind, it is necessary to know how IDOVEN and its services can help meet the UN target of reducing deaths from heart disease by a third.
Committed to the present and the future of people, IDOVEN works on the #DonateYourHeartbeats campaign with the aim of contributing to the investigation and prevention of heart disease in the most vulnerable groups.
The power of health data lies in each healthy or sick person. Our #DonateYourHeartbeats initiative can help health professionals provide safe and effective care through the responsible sharing of information about how people's hearts behave throughout their lives. Together, we can better prevent disease, improve health care pathways, and develop new ways to make medicine or treatments faster.
Projects and collaborations
"A heartbeat, a new hope" is a joint project with the Iker Casillas Foundation that starts to promote health prevention in especially vulnerable groups such as children with congenital heart disease, selected by the IDOVEN medical team.
For IDOVEN, it is an honour to unify efforts with the Iker Casillas Foundation to prevent early and non-invasive heart problems and cardiovascular diseases, relying on the artificial intelligence that feeds our services.
