Cardiac Insight’s ECG patch and analysis software system make up its seven-day ambulatory ECG system that provides rapid, in-clinic automated cardiac analysis and reporting. It is a standalone solution that does not require internet access, cloud computing solutions or third-party outsourcing. “Our international distribution partnership with i.SigNal by Dreamtech is a key collaboration for Cardiac Insight, combining our first-in-class ECG technology with i.SigNal’s strategic healthcare market focus that will accelerate [the] adoption of the Cardea SOLO System on a global scale,” Cardiac Insight CEO Brad Harlow said in a statement.

It will help physicians improve the detection, diagnosis and treatment of serious cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, that, left untreated, can lead to disabling stroke, heart failure and death,” said Dreamtech CEO Min Kim. In a statement, Yang Wenglong, its founder and chairman, said the company will use the proceeds to offer more services, including medical care, medicine delivery and health insurance.
