Together with the UMC Utrecht, KAESS is developing an online clinic for earlier detection and better treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Family members of people with hereditary cardiovascular diseases can gain easy access to genetic tests and information about these tests through this clinic.
The eCG Family Clinic for Hereditary Heart Diseases is one of six projects of ‘Heart for Sustainable Care’, a joint funding programme of the Dutch CardioVascular Alliance (DCVA) and the Innovative Medical Devices Initiative (IMDI). These six research teams receive a total of more than 5 million euros for research into the use of new technology against cardiovascular diseases. The Dutch Heart Foundation (Hartstichting) accounts for half of this amount.
