Whitepaper: Monetary Impacts For Medicare Advantage Plans Using Cardiogram

Early detection and diagnosis of health conditions allowing for treatment and maintenance have been proven to prevent higher costs from long-term complications and emergent care through a late diagnosis. By closing gaps in care sooner, members are healthier, and Medicare Advantage (MA) Health Plans can both increase MA Revenue and simultaneously reduce Total Cost of Care.

Rooted in research, Cardiogram is a metabolic and heart health mobile phone app that uses commercially-available off-the-shelf wearables to accurately pre-diagnose atrial fibrillation, hypertension, sleep apnea, and diabetes. By using Cardiogram combined with confirmatory tests and treatment, Medicare Advantage (MA) plans can expect to both reduce the total cost of care and increase revenue through Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) risk score adjustments.
