23andMe, Livongo alum joins AI startup to improve cardiac ultrasound

Andy Page, former president of digital health startups 23andMe and Livongo, joined Caption Health as CEO earlier this year, the San Francisco-based artificial intelligence company announced Oct. 1.

Caption Health also announced its name change from Bay Labs, and revealed that its AI-powered cardiac ultrasound software had been proven successful in a clinical study conducted at Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine and Minneapolis Heart Institute. The software, Caption Guidance, also received the FDA's "Breakthrough Device" designation.

"Caption Health's AI technology occupies a unique space in healthcare, because it is designed to enable a broader set of healthcare providers to use ultrasound, a powerful and safe diagnostic tool," Mr. Page said in a statement. "We are rapidly moving toward commercialization of Caption AI and our vision of moving specialty diagnostics to the point of care."
