Heart I/O


Heart Input Output, Inc. (DBA Heart I/O) is an artificial intelligence and machine learning start-up developing novel technology for use in cardiovascular diagnostics and remote patient monitoring. At Heart I/O, we’re committed to saving lives, improving outcomes, and decreasing costs. Our team believes that patients should have access to actionable information about heart health. We’re creating the first cloud-based platform that houses an “AI Cardiologist” that continuously screens for life-threatening conditions. Our proprietary algorithms will act as “guardian angels”, watching over the individuals that need it most. In the long-term, Heart I/O will save hundreds of thousands of lives and billions of dollars for the U.S. healthcare system, annually. To us, it’s personal – that’s why we’re reprogramming cardiovascular health.
