Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Although dubbed the “silent killer”, even after patients have had some sort of intervention or episode, 43% of patients end up being re-admitted to the hospital. Most cardiac recovery programs cover just 12-weeks post-event. Recora Health is a digital cardiac recovery program that works with insurers and health care providers to deliver comprehensive long-term lasting solutions to the epidemic of heart disease for patients so that they can successfully manage their heart disease and implement the necessary lifestyle changes to ensure a healthy, long life. The signature program includes all the equipment necessary to manage heart disease including exercise bands, tablets, and blood pressure monitors, a dedicated care team, educational resources, and access to tailored virtual care. Only 11% of Recora patients are readmitted to the hospital, 87% complete the program vs 26% for standard programs, 90% are able to successfully decrease their blood pressure, and 94% are taking their medications as necessary. The company through its regional insurance and health care partners currently serves 30,000+ cardiac care patients, making true value-based cardiac rehabilitation care accessible and affordable with plans to expand nationally. AlleyWatch caught up with Recora Health Cofounder and CEO Abhishek Chandra to learn more about the inspiration for the business, the company’s strategic plans, latest round of funding from investors that include SignalFire, Valor Equity Partners, and Pear VC.
