"Today we're giving patients and caregivers the ultimate gift, an active role in their total heart health anytime anywhere, not just at office visits," said Vic Gundotra, AliveCor CEO. "With these new integrations, AliveCor is expanding beyond just atrial fibrillation detection and giving patients more control over their own care. This combination of vital stats gives patients an unprecedented view of their heart disease risk factors, making them more engaged in their heart health care."
Android and iOS users will now be able to track their body weight from the Kardia app, by manually entering weight into the app or by accessing Apple Health or Google Fit. Android users can now manage blood pressure results by manually entering data or accessing the readings from Google Fit.
Devoted to delivering trusted medical-grade products for both consumers and physicians, AliveCor continues to work closely with the FDA for clearance of the Kardia Band, which is expected to be released in the U.S. in early 2017.
