A New Paradigm
of Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to overhaul the current system of cardiovascular care and improve the lives of patients by tackling the high cost of care while increasing patient success.
Cardiovascular care is the #1 cost to our health system.
The current fee for service model incentivizes providers to maximize volume and throughput at the expense of clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
