CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – May 14, 2024 Anumana, a leading AI-driven health technology company and portfolio company of nference, today announced the appointment of Harry S. Palmin as chief financial officer (CFO). As a veteran in building, financing, and operating life sciences companies, Palmin brings over 25 years of experience to Anumana’s executive leadership team. In his new role, he will lead financial operations, investor relations, and corporate development activities at Anumana, and guide the company’s strategic growth. In addition to his role as CFO of Anumana, Palmin joins nference as CFO, Ventures.

Palmin's distinguished career includes tenure as CFO at Acer Therapeutics Inc., where he played a pivotal role in the company's successful acquisition by Zevra Therapeutics, Inc. His leadership was instrumental in Acer's public offering and the company’s FDA approval for OLPRUVA™, a treatment for urea cycle disorders. Prior to his role at Acer, Palmin served in multiple executive positions at Novelos Therapeutics, Inc., where he helped transform the company from conceptual stage into a leading public oncology and infectious disease development entity. 

“Harry is a highly skilled and accomplished executive with a proven track record in building successful companies in the life sciences industry,” said Maulik Nanavaty, CEO of Anumana. “I am thrilled to welcome Harry to Anumana at an exciting time for the company, where we are making tremendous progress in pipeline development and commercial traction. I look forward to partnering with him through our next phase of growth.” 

Anumana is at the forefront of revolutionizing healthcare with its groundbreaking ECG-AITM platform that, from standard ECGs at the point of care, enables the identification of hidden cardiovascular diseases for which effective, lifesaving treatments may be available. The ECG-AI platform won the 2024 MedTech Breakthrough Award for “Best New Technology Solution- Cardiology.” 

The company’s lead algorithm, ECG-AI LEF, an FDA Breakthrough Device-designated medical device, recently received FDA clearance for detecting low ejection fraction, a common undiagnosed indicator of heart failure1 and prevalent progressive disease that affects over 6 million people in the U.S. and is associated with a significant total annual healthcare cost.2 Anumana’s expansive development pipeline also includes three additional algorithms with FDA Breakthrough Device designation (pulmonary hypertension, cardiac amyloidosis, and hyperkalemia). The company has multiple ongoing partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies to further develop and commercialize algorithms in its pipeline.3,4 Anumana also spearheaded the effort to bring reimbursement to ECG-AI, receiving approval for two Category III CPT® codes from the American Medical Association in 2022. These codes are now available and designed to facilitate the use, adoption, and potential reimbursement of emerging technologies in clinical workflows.5

“Anumana is one of the most innovative companies in healthcare technology and it is an honor to be joining the organization at such a pivotal time in its growth,” said Palmin. “The progress Anumana has accomplished in just three years since its founding and the potential impact that Anumana’s AI technology platform can make on patient outcomes are inspiring. I am excited to be part of the team and the mission to use pioneering AI technology to unlock the electrical language of the heart and improve patient care.” 

Palmin earned a B.A. in economics and business and an M.A. in international economics and finance from the International Business School at Brandeis University. He also studied at the London School of Economics and the Copenhagen Business School.
