Bronze Corporate Sponsors




David Malsee, CMO


We equip care providers with remote patient monitoring technology to improve the treatment of patients with chronic illness. Our technology collects patient-generated health statuses in real-time from the patient's home (or from any remote location) and delivers that information to a care manager through an interactive dashboard. This allows for rapid interventions and leads to the right type of care, at the right time, and in the right way. We offer a turn-key solution that not only enables an organization to implement this technology seamlessly but empowers care managers and patients to treat chronic illnesses more effectively as well.
