Better Care Through Better Data

From the time he was a high school student, Jordan Engbers has been interested in health. It was this interest that led him to successfully apply for scholarships and training opportunities—including several Alberta Innovates’ early career development programs—and ultimately co-found Cohesic, a health-data analytics company.

Cohesic is a Calgary-based start-up that deploys an artificial intelligence platform to enhance and streamline cardiovascular care. The platform automates some of the process involved in diagnostic testing, analysis, communicating results and tracking patients’ progress. The result is increased efficiency and reduced medical errors. It also provides clinicians with greater insight into their patients’ health.

The platform also allows large amounts of health data to be compiled for research. The result is standardized workflow for healthcare professionals, better data to support clinical decisions, and better care for patients.
