Our history

Every good story
starts with an idea

In Germany, unfortunately, thousands of patients at risk for cardiac arrhythmias are not diagnosed because the prevailing long-term ECG is time-consuming, personnel-intensive and cost-intensive – wicked tongues would say they are outdated and unprofitable.

With serious consequences for patients.
• Undetected atrial fibrillation is responsible for thousands of strokes.
• Arrhythmias can be responsible for heart failure.
We want to and will finally change that for the benefit of patients and physicians.

Therefore, in 2018, as a spin-off of the renowned Cardiologicum Hamburg, we founded ourselves as dpv-analytics GmbH with the vision to set new standards in long-term ECG diagnostics and thus in heart and stroke prophylaxis. In order to achieve the long overdue paradigm shift in dealing with high-risk patients.

In line with the motto “Prevention instead of treatment”, we developed a “Diagnostic as a service” system, which has already been awarded the German Medical Award as the most innovative medical product 2021.

Our system meets all the requirements for fast and safe long-term ECG diagnostics and thus the best possible care for your patients.
And it is:
• easy and attractive to use
• convenient for the patient
• cost-effective

We want to realize our vision together with you:
Safe long-term ECG diagnostics that can be used anywhere, saves time and is cost-effective.
Think of the ritmo system as another colleague – for you and your team.
