GreatCall Seeks Acquisitions

GreatCall, Inc. is looking for acquisitions. Brian Berning, Chief Financial Officer of GreatCall said, "We will continue to innovate new products and services but we will also acquire synergistic opportunities. With the sheer number of family caregivers in the U.S. and the aging of Baby Boomers, the need for technology support will increase rapidly. GreatCall is poised to anticipate and respond to that need."

GreatCall Adds Alivecor(R) Heart Monitor to Mobile Health Portfolio

GreatCall, Inc. is bringing the ability to affordably track heart health anywhere, anytime to its Touch3 smartphone as a pilot program. The AliveCor(R) Heart Monitor is now available as a Touch3 accessory, enabling those with suspected or diagnosed heart conditions as well as those at risk of heart conditions to fully participate in their own cardiac health. The AliveCor Heart Monitor fits on the back of a GreatCall Touch3 smartphone and simply rests on the user's fingers or chest to record an ECG (electrocardiogram). AliveCor's proprietary technology converts electrical impulses from the user's fingertips into ultrasound signals transmitted to the mobile device's microphone and into the free AliveECG app. The AliveCor Heart Monitor's medical grade ECG recordings can be shared directly with physician or sent to a U.S. board-certified cardiologist through a cloud-based ECG analysis service provided by AliveCor. In as little as 30 minutes users can receive expert reviews of their ECGs directly through the free AliveECG app providing a more complete picture of their current heart health. Recently, the device was granted FDA clearance for its algorithm that can immediately detect if patients are experiencing atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia. The AliveCor Heart Monitor is intended to record, store and transfer electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythms. The AliveCor Heart Monitor also displays ECG rhythms and detects the presence of atrial fibrillation (when prescribed or used under the care of a physician). The AliveCor Heart Monitor is intended for use by healthcare professionals, patients with known or suspected heart conditions and health conscious individuals. The AliveCor Heart Monitor is compatible with all iOS models and most Android mobile devices. Users have the ability to access their data confidentially anytime, anywhere. The AliveCor Heart Monitor is available at www.greatcall.com/alivecor. It is priced at $199.00.
