Our mission is to empower doctors to save lives with the help of innovative technology and advanced AI algorithms. Founded in 2014, Tricog is one of the world’s largest predictive healthcare analytics firms. Tricog was first started by Dr Charit Bhograj — an Interventional Cardiologist — who realized that the cardiac issues got severe due to a delay in preliminary diagnosis (ECG).
Electrocardiograms (ECGs) are the primary means of diagnosing serious cardiac conditions like heart attacks. Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis, a delay of an hour in diagnosing heart attacks (golden hour) has been shown to significantly increase the risk of mortality and permanent damage to the heart. As machine embedded algorithms are only ~70% accurate in diagnosing heart attacks, most physicians prefer getting ECGs read by cardiologists. This causes significant delays in diagnosing cardiovascular conditions and increases risks to the patient’s life. The worsening state of the problem and the impo...

As machine embedded algorithms are only ~70% accurate in diagnosing heart attacks, most physicians prefer getting ECGs read by cardiologists. This causes significant delays in diagnosing cardiovascular conditions and increases risks to the patient’s life. The worsening state of the problem and the importance of treatment within an hour (the golden hour) makes the search for a scalable solution to provide fast, accessible and affordable cardiac care to the masses.
InstaECG is Tricog’s flagship product that helps patients receive the Cardiologist Certified ECG reports within 10 minutes. The cloud-connected InstaECG machines are placed at various centres, which steadily keep pushing ECGs taken at the centres to the Tricog Cloud where the proprietary algorithms first analyse ECGs and provide preliminary interpretation for verification by the in-house medical specialist team. These AI based algorithms aid the in-house medical team to provide the cardiologist verified ECG interpretation back to the centres via E-Mail, SMS or App notifications within 10 minutes. And if the patient is found to be critical, Tricog works with neighbourhood tertiary hospitals to accelerate treatment.
The Tricog InstaECG has two key differentiators - the highly trained medical team reading ECGs 24x7x365 and state-of-art IoT and cloud-based algorithms. By using custom-built IoT connectors, Tricog successfully converted inexpensive off-the-shelf ECG machines into cloud-connected ones allowing them to leverage advanced proprietary algorithms (THA) on the Tricog cloud. Coupling the algorithms with a carefully designed ECG viewing system has driven the Tricog medical team’s average ECG diagnosis time to less than the 30s (a factor of 20x savings compared to an average physician!)
