The healthcare system is episodic and based on crude and limited data. Echo Labs is changing healthcare by making it continuous.

Medical assessment and treatment is typically reactive, intermittent and often relies on subjective patient characterization. Echo Labs’ disease management platform augments this process by identifying and prioritizing patients in the early onset of exacerbations through the world’s first continuous measurement of a full set of human vital signs and blood gases. By providing actionable insights to disease managers early enough to affect a change, private insurers avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and reduce spending dramatically.
