AliveCor, OMRON announce cardiac monitoring strategic alliance, equity investment

You know it’s a step towards a more normal state of affairs when this Editor can cheerfully announce something which has really nothing to do with a virus, pandemic, or something ending in 19, although there’s the expected COVID spin. Almost getting lost in All That was the announcement last week of a global strategic alliance between AliveCor, the developer of KardiaMobile, and OMRON Healthcare, the Kyoto-based cardiac health and wellness company. Cardiac monitoring was around well before this virus and with a focus on mobile monitoring, is a major up-vote for an innovative company like AliveCor.  What’s in the release is the announcement of a global alliance, technology integration, and at the very end of the release, closing of an undisclosed equity investment by OMRON Corporation (OMRON Healthcare’s parent). This is actually the second equity investment which OMRON has made in AliveCor, with the first being in March 2017 with the Mayo Clinic.
