AI-driven startup from nference and Mayo Clinic Platform positioned to transform cardiac care
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 20, 2023 – Anumana, an AI-driven health technology company and portfolio company of nference, has been named one of Fierce Medtech’s 2022 Fierce 15. This prestigious honor indicates that the two-year-old company is well-positioned to transform cardiac care by leveraging cutting-edge AI and industry-leading translational science to unlock the electrical language of the heart.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the Medtech Fierce 15 companies for 2022,” said David McMullin, Chief Business Officer of Anumana. “Anumana’s goal is to decode electrical signals from the heart as never before, empowering healthcare providers to improve patient care throughout the cardiac clinical pathway. We are excited to continue developing innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges facing cardiovascular disease diagnosis, treatment, and management.”
Powered by nference’s nSights data platform, Anumana leverages ECG waveforms from the heart with deep, longitudinal electronic medical records (EMR) data at the patient level, developing state-of-the-art algorithms aimed to help physicians diagnose and treat cardiac disease earlier and more efficiently. Nference, which partners with leading healthcare systems such as Mayo Clinic and Duke Health, makes real-world data available includes multiple data modalities (clinical, molecular, and imaging).
Anumana’s algorithms for early detection of low ejection fraction, pulmonary hypertension, and hyperkalemia, have received Breakthrough Device Designation from the U.S. FDA. Its robust pipeline of FDA-ready algorithms has been validated with significant prospective clinical evidence in over 75 peer-reviewed publications - including two first-of-their-kind studies published in Nature Medicine and The Lancet. Anumana develops these algorithms in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic Platform and has received sponsorship from strategic pharmaceutical leaders such as Janssen, Novartis, and Pfizer to further develop and commercialize ECG-AI algorithms.
Anumana’s AI platform utilizes widely accessible screening tools and is built to seamlessly integrate into existing clinical workflows, providing clinicians with real-time insights, accelerating the time to guideline-directed medical therapy, reducing costs, and improving patient outcomes. Anumana seeks regulatory clearances for the platform as software as a medical device (SaMD) and has early milestones for reimbursement in place with two Category III CPT® codes that became effective January 1st, 2023.
