Shuo Qiao is the Co-Founder and CTO of Moving Analytics, a digital health company focusing on cardiovascular health and providing alternatives to traditional cardiac services. While many devices measure blood pressure and monitor activity, using them can be time-consuming and provide inaccurate readings. Shou points to clinical evidence that home-based cardiac rehabilitation with remote sensing support is as safe and effective as in-person care. The challenge is getting providers and payers to understand how this approach can significantly benefit them as well as patients.

Shuo explains, "What we are using currently is from one of our device providers. They provide a heart monitor and weighing scale that basically just does the measurements. They will automatically transfer the data through 3G network to our server. I would say there's zero set-up for the patient. They just get the device, and they just measure their blood pressure and weight. That's it. When it's done, data automatically uploads. No set-up whatsoever. Those are the things that we usually use."

"On top of that, we also have a smart activity tracker that you put on the wrist. It can help you monitor your daily tasks, how much you exercise, along with your heart rate, and things like that. It's super helpful as well."
