Work on Computer Assisted Reporting of Electrocardiograms (CARE) began in Glasgow in 1964. Today the CARE team form the Electrocardiology Group within the School of Health and WellBeing of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences at the University of Glasgow and are located within Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Scotland.
The team is led by Professor Peter Macfarlane, an expert in the field of electrocardiography, who has over 35 years experience in the development of computer based systems for the interpretation of ECGs. Read more in A Significant Medical History.
The work of the Electrocardiology Group can be categorised into two broad types of activities. Both activities are certified to ISO 9001: 2015 standards by a UKAS accredited certification:
- Research and development into new techniques for automating ECG diagnosis (the Glasgow program )
- The ECG Core lab and Clinical trials
Within this framework we can provide a number of services.
