Initial Focus

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) - enormous market, no existing effective management solution

  • The third leading cause of death in the United States, as well as globally1
  • 16+ million Americans have been diagnosed with COPD and millions more are undiagnosed2
  • Over $50 Billion per year is spent on the care and management of this disease3
  • Our system guarantees compliance for the first early warning system for COPD exacerbation
  • With proper alerts doctors can keep patients healthy and out of the hospital by prescribing antibiotics, steroids or other changes

Our solution saves money, keeps patients healthier and doctors happier and ultimately can save lives.

There are many other markets that have shown great potential and interest however we feel that given the size, growth rate and opportunity for disruption the COPD market is where we need to focus initially.
