Promotional description of the business: heart disease is the number 1 reason for death in the US. The medical cost for heart failure will be $69B by 2030, and an estimated 26 million people suffer. As the entire world steps into an aging society, this problem will worsen and eventually make our healthcare system not sustainable. Our solution can effectively reduce the mortality rate and save medical costs by empowering patients to manage their health more effectively and help physicians take care of patients more efficiently.
Motivation for starting the business： I am a Leukemia survivor, and I spent lots of time in the hospital to fight my cancer. During a hospital stay at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), I carefully observed clinical workflow and found many opportunities. Meanwhile, I have over 15 years of experience researching and commercializing Artificial Intelligence (AI) products; Qualcomm sponsored my Ph.D. Therefore, I decided to use AI to craft future healthcare and wish people like me could suffer less, eventually, fewer people like me.
