“AliveCor, Inc. is transforming cardiological care using deep learning. KardiaMobile provides instant detection of atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, tachycardia, and normal heart rhythm in an ECG. Kardia is the first AI-enabled platform to aid patients and clinicians in the early detection of atrial fibrillation, the most common arrhythmia and one associated with a highly elevated risk of stroke. AliveCor’s enterprise platform allows third party providers to manage their patients and customers’ heart conditions simply and profitably using state-of-the-art tools that provide easy front-end and back-end integration to AliveCor technologies”, says Priya Abani, Chief Executive Officer, Alivecor, capturing the essence of the brand in short.
The company was co-founded by Dr. David Albert, a medical doctor and former chief clinical scientist of cardiology at General Electric, along with scientists Bruce Satchwell and Kim Barnett. Dr. David started working on ECGs for handheld computers in 1990, when the first palm top computer was released by Hewlett-Packard. He received a 1998 patent for wireless transmission of ECGs in handheld devices. In December 2010, Albert demonstrated a prototype of an iPhone ECG through a YouTube video and that was the start of the journey to develop a US-FDA approved, most clinically validated personal ECG solution in the world.
With hundreds of millions at risk from heart disease across the globe, accessible heart care has never been more important. India has been witnessing rapid increase in cardiovascular diseases amongst its population, with the number of cases doubling from 1990 to 2016. There are millions of people at risk from heart disease in India, and with the ongoing pandemic and stay-at-home orders in place, many people find it hard to get even the routine healthcare they need for fear of increasing their risk of exposure to COVID-19.
KardiaMobile’s launch in India has not only made it easier for people to stay on top of their heart health from home. Indeed, the innovation has been optimizing precious time, money and resources for multiple stakeholders in India’s healthcare ecosystem. The portable and technology-enabled ECG device can help deliver affordable and convenient heart care to millions heart patients and those at risk, without visiting a hospital.
AliveCor’s technology gives patients the ability to record a medical-grade ECG in just 30 seconds, with no hospital visits and complete peace of mind.
The device is small enough to fit in a pocket, allowing users to check in on their heart anytime, anywhere right from their smartphone.
Brand AliveCor’s mission is to save lives and transform the cardiology terrain by delivering intelligent and highly personalized heart data to clinicians and patients anytime and anywhere.
The brand’s vision is to be the ‘Go-To’ 24X7 virtual cardiologist for patients when they’re not in front of their physician.
