  1. Biofourmis

    In December 2020, digital therapeutics and virtual care provider Biofourmis launched a virtual hospital-at-home program for healthcare organizations across the U.S. The company worked with Boston-based Brigham and Women's Hospital to create the Biovitals Hospital@Home program.

    On Feb. 2, Orange, Calif.-based UCI Health signed a multiyear deal with Biofourmis to use its artificial intelligence-powered remote-monitoring tools to care for acute and post-acute care patients in their homes.

    On Dec. 6, Reno, Nev.-based Renown Health partnered with BioIntellisense to improve in-hospital and at-home care through the use of the company's body sensor.
