SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HeartBeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAT), a developmental stage digital healthcare company with a proprietary ECG telemedicine technology for heart attack detection, was selected as winner of the annual Cardiovascular Innovations (CVI) 2022 Innovation Summit and Shark Tank Competition held on July 21, 2022, in Denver, Colorado. The CVI annual conference focuses on innovative health solutions for cardiology clinicians who participate in the care of patients with coronary, peripheral and structural cardiovascular diseases.
The Company was invited to participate by CVI board member, Subhash Banerjee, MD. HeartBeam’s presentation, “Medical Grade Heart Attack Detection,” was delivered by Jon Hunt, PhD, Chief Business Officer, discussing the Company’s HeartBeam AIMI™ platform designed to aid in more precise heart attack diagnosis. HeartBeam was among several companies presenting cutting-edge technology advancements and was judged by veterans from leading companies as well as expert cardiologists.
The HeartBeam AIMI™ platform technology is anticipated to assist health care professionals in identifying patients who present with chest pain to facilitate rapid detection of a heart attack and determine an appropriate treatment regimen. Chest pain is the second most common reason for an emergency department visit, with high costs associated with these visits. HeartBeam’s technology may offer more accurate heart attack detection to triage patients and expedite treatment. The HeartBeam technology platform has not yet been evaluated by the FDA and is not approved for clinical use in the USA or other global geographies.
“We are proud that HeartBeam has been recognized for our unique approach to heart attack diagnosis,” said Branislav Vajdic, CEO and founder of HeartBeam. “Our goal is to provide a solution that offers both healthcare professionals and patients peace of mind regarding their diagnosis and treatment plan.”
