U.S. cardiac care startup Heartbeat Health secures US$8.2 million
  • The series A funding round was led by Optum Ventures and .406 ventures
  • The company aims at expanding the delivery of advanced virtual cardiovascular care

Heartbeat Health – a New York headquartered startup focusing on enhancing cardiovascular solutions has recently raised Series A funding worth US$8.2 million.

Reportedly, the funding round was led by Optum Ventures and .406 ventures, witnessing a participation from other companies like Lerer Hippeau, Kindred Ventures, Max Ventures and Designer Fund.

According to Dr. Jeffery Wessler, CEO of Heartbeat and a cardiologist, the increasing opportunities in the digital health platform will prove to be extremely beneficial in healthcare management in the coming years.

He further adds that to address the issues related to the delivery of cardiovascular care, Heartbeat Health has introduced a “digital first” platform that allows patients to connect with health experts through telemedicine who may direct them to an appropriate Heartbeat partner for a personalized care service.  

Apparently, this mechanism may assist patients to avoid major inefficiencies in the cardiac-care system as the platform ensures matching the patient with the right Heartbeat Health expert. The technique involves using evidence and guideline-based testing that ensures reliable and safe results.

For the record, Heartbeat Health tries to gather appropriate heart related information through wearable medical devices like a Fitbit or an Apple Watch and provides data regarding which treatment may be the most effective. 

Notably, the program closely works with leading commercial insurance firms and has a patient-base of 10,000 people in New York. Additionally, the network has also been widely accepted by various cardiologists.

Founded in the year 2017, Heartbeat Health provides virtual heart disease prevention and management with an aim to enhance the clinical experience and health outcomes at a considerably lower cost.

Through its wide range of service portfolio, including virtual cardiovascular management programs, biometric risk assessment and a large network of cardiologists, the company helps patients and employers draw benefits from superior value care at low cost for reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
