The CBC in collaboration with Medable is developing a mobile application for patients with ventricular assist devices (VAD) due to end-stage heart failure. The app prompts patients to collect daily VAD numbers and send an image of their driveline site in order to see if they are showing signs of infection. The supporting healthcare institution’s care team can join together through the app to communicate asynchronously on how to best provide care to all patients in need.
