AliveCor

AliveCor developed the first smartphone-connected electrocardiogram, or EKG, called Kardia, which detects abnormal heart rhythms on a phone in much the same way that an EKG in a hospital records the electrical activity of the heart. What this means is that patients can check their heart health regularly and find out within 30 seconds whether their results are normal or they should seek medical attention. That’s particularly important for millions of Americans at risk for arrhythmias, which may be symptomless and can result in potentially fatal outcomes like heart failure and stroke. In 2016, the company announced a new version of its electrocardiogram for the Apple Watch, called Kardia Band, and it is the first to have an FDA-cleared blood pressure monitor and EKG in a single app. By November 2016, Kardia had recorded some 11 million EKGs, up from 2 million in March 2015. Also in 2016, AliveCor announced a collaboration with Mayo Clinic to use machine learning technology to better understand some of the hidden health indicators in all of the EKG readings it is collecting.
