We are building stents and grafts with an integrated sensor platform and leveraging our proprietary cloud software to change patient lives.

Solution

GraftWorx seamlessly integrates a sensor package into the bypass graft or stent and interrogates the device daily via a smartphone app.

Technology

GraftWorx has already developed a HIPAA-compliant cloud solution able to communicate with our "smart" cardiovascular implantables and securely store and analyze data generated from the sensors.

Hospitals

GraftWorx' integrated cloud platform allows us to identify patients who are at risk of poor outcomes, such as an amputation or heart attack, and allows lower cost preventative measures to be taken. This lowers overall hospital expenditures and decreases readmission rates.

Physicians

With the new Medicare reimbursement for remote monitoring of chronic conditions, GraftWorx can help clinicians increase revenue by $50-100 per patient per month for their practice while reducing the number of bad outcomes.
