There’s plenty of activity surrounding Brookfield-based and artificial intelligence startup healthio Inc.
Last week, the company announced a partnership with GE Healthcare, in which the billion-dollar subsidiary of General Electric will fuse its electrocardiography (ECG) algorithm into healthio’s app. The partnership will allow users to monitor their heart activity in between clinic visits via healthio’s app. Downloading the app is free, but users must either subscribe to a month-to-month or yearly plan to use the service.
Healthio, which launched in 2016, is also in the midst of a $6 million round of funding which will close in April, said Sanjay Mohan, co-founder, president and CEO of healthio. Those funds will be used on development and data research, along with increasing staff, Mohan said.
By the end of the 2018, Mohan will hire as many as 15 full-time employees.
This week, the founding members of the two-year-old company are in Las Vegas for the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, where thousands of health care and insurance professionals will be in attendance. The plan is to network with physician practices, health service companies and insurance firms that will purchase subscriptions to healthio for their clients. Read the full story here.
