High Quality, Low Cost HealthCare Video Interview Series: Dr. David Albert and AliveCor
Last week we heard Dr Akash Rajpal talk about Ekohealth and how it helps patients negotiate costs of medical procedures and medications. Today, I have David Albert, CEO and Founder of AliveCor who will talk about and show us AliveCor's Mobile Heart Monitor for iPhone 4 or 4S. This small portable monitor takes an EKG in just seconds and can send it immediately to your provider. And AliveCor.com provides you with anytime, anywhere, fully secure, HIPAA-compliant online access to all of your ECGs.
This monitor is cleared for use by medical professionals by the FDA and has already started shipping. Later this year, it will also be available in Droid platform. Watch the video and listen to Dr Albert talk about the heart monitor and give us a live demonstration of how it works.
