AI-powered cardiac care startup receives $30M from Omron Healthcare, Mayo Clinic

AliveCor, a Mountain View, Calif.-based cardiovascular care startup, earned $30 million in series D funding.

Lake Forest, Ill.-based Omron Healthcare, which manufactures and distributes home healthcare products, led the funding round. Other participating organizations included Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic and existing inside investors. AliveCor will use the new funds to expand its heart health business.

AliveCor develops software to enable early detection and prevention of heart disease and stroke. It recently released its artificial intelligence-powered platform, called Kardia Pro, in the United States. Kardia Pro allows physicians to monitor patients for early detection of atrial fibrillation.

"Kardia Pro tracks important measures of physiology like weight, activity and blood pressure, and, for the first time, AI technology is used to create a personal heart profile for each user, enabling user identification," said Vic Gundotra, CEO of AliveCor.
