Moving Analytics: Virtual Cardiac Rehabilitation

Helping reverse the effects of heart disease

Published on

Alumni Ventures portfolio company Moving Analytics has developed a remote cardiac rehabilitation program that aims to improve the quality of life for those who have suffered cardiac episodes.

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of mortality in the United States. According to the CDC, a person dies every 36 seconds from cardiovascular disease — or roughly 659,000 heart disease-related deaths every year. For those that survive major cardiovascular events, the physical rehabilitation required can make the difference between a positive outcome or long-term negative health effects. Especially for those at risk of further cardiac events, it is crucial to adopt a rehab regimen that takes into account a patient’s specific needs while minimizing the possibility of future cardiac events.

The CDC estimates that heart disease costs the U.S. economy $363 billion annually — a significant amount that is borne not only by individuals, but by private and public organizations as well. Moving Analytics’ solution aims to reduce barriers to access and improve outcomes for post-emergency care of cardiac patients while reducing the societal costs of those afflicted by heart disease.

A Recovery-Focused Telehealth Platform

Moving Analytics has created an interactive, remote, and physician-supervised virtual cardiac rehabilitation program to mitigate the impact of heart disease through exercise training, risk factor modification, medication therapy, and more. The company delivers its program through a web-based portal, patient-facing mobile app, and biometric-focused care kit. The result is a streamlined and accessible rehabilitation experience that patients access from the comfort of their homes.
