“Thanks to our cooperation with LIVMOR and Samsung, we are able to treat some of the nation’s most at-risk patients as safely and effectively from the comfort of their homes as we would if they were sitting in an exam room,” said Dr. Jerrold Grodin, Department of Veterans Affairs, North Texas. “We’ve seen an increase in early adoption from patients when their physicians are also early adopters.”
Among the available opportunities is a potential collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs through its Accelerating VA Innovation and Learning (AVAIL) program. In September, the VA announced that 17 companies had won spots in a potential five-year, $650 million healthcare technology research and development program. Participants provide subject-matter expertise to help the agency design, build and test novel platforms, services and care models that could be scaled into clinical production to support the Veterans Health Administration.
One of the AVAIL program's awardees is Longview International Technology Solutions (LTS), a systems integration company. LIVMOR and Samsung have been designated as official collaborators with LTS for the AVAIL project. With the Company’s anticipated participation in the AVAIL project, HeartBeam could share its expertise in the assessment and monitoring of cardiac symptoms as it collaborates with Samsung to innovate and develop solutions for the VA, the largest integrated healthcare system in the U.S.
"Veterans reported a rate of heart attacks more than twice that of non-veterans in one study," Dr. Vajdic added. "This shows that coronary artery disease is a significant problem for veterans, making improvements in heart attack detection at the VA particularly critical."
