India is facing a significant challenge in the form of cardiovascular disease, and the numbers are alarming. It is predicted to have the highest number of cardiac deaths globally by 2030. Heart diseases affect Indians at a younger age compared to their Western counterparts, often without any prior warning. This calls for urgent and comprehensive preventive care to tackle the burden of heart ailments in the country.

Lyfe is Lupin Digital Health's pioneering evidence-based cardiology digital therapeutics (DTx) platform. On the other hand, the ACC is a global scientific leader in the practice of Cardiology.
The primary goal of this unique collaboration is to bring in-home cardiovascular care with Digital Therapeutics to India. Lupin Digital Health's DTx platform, known as Lyfe, aims to equip patients and healthcare providers with tools to manage heart diseases from the comfort of their homes. This, in turn, will help in reducing the rate of rehospitalization and ensure better post-hospital discharge care.
