8 Disruptive Startups to Watch

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States -- costing over $100 billion each year. Utilizing patient engagement, behavior modification, healthcare analytics and chronic care management, these eight disruptive startups strive to provide transformative solutions.

Health Recovery Solutions helps patients reduce the chance of readmission through a research based platform that constructively guides patient's behavior. HRS is an outcomes based outpatient care organization with patented software that is customizable to specific diseases such as CHF, diabetes, and COPD.


HeartFlow strives to improve coronary artery disease detection with their non-invasive HeartFlow® Analysis. Using data from a standard CT scan, the HeartFlow Analysis creates a personalized 3D model of the coronary arteries and analyzes the impact that blockages have on blood flow.


Hello Heart helps patients aggregate and make sense of their lab data and better understand their diabetes risk, hypertension level, and cholesterol levels. Users authorize the data transfer by logging into their patient portals at the various providers and the Hello Heart app provides a dashboard of data to help guide their behavior.


IntelliQuit is a mobile health device that employs a biosensor and mobile app to inform smokers of their biochemical tobacco consumption and assists the smoker in gradual cessation using evidence-based therapies and treatment plans to truly help them quit.


MocaCare has developed a device called MocaHeart that tracks cardiovascular health. The device scans the user's fingertips to measure blood flow velocity and uses that metric to determine heart rate and blood oxygen levels. It also offers users a qualitative measure of users' overall cardiovascular health, called the Moca Index.


Moving Analytics delivers home-based cardiac rehabilitation through patients’ mobile devices. An app guides them through an evidence-based care-plan of exercise, educational materials and vital signs monitoring. A web-portal enables case-managers to track patient progress, administer care plans and get reimbursed.


Omada Health helps employers and health plans tackle chronic disease in an engaging, effective, and scalable way. By utilizing technology to inspire lasting behavior change in anyone at risk for chronic disease, Omada strives to prevent the onset of some of the biggest drivers of costs in Medicare: diabetes and heart disease.


Women’s Heart App (WHA) is a mobile application integrated with wearables and backend data analytics to empower women to understand early warning signs, recognize and reduce risk factors, and link to expert providers in women’s cardiovascular health.
