Cardiomedix, a Telehealth and ambulatory cardiac monitoring company, was founded in 1988 by its medical director, Dr. Daniel David, a renowned cardiologist. In the early 70’s Dr. David realized that the need to provide discharged cardiac patients with stress-free, remote access to medical consultation existed. In pursuit of a solution, Dr. David pioneered the field of remote patient monitoring and online medical data transmission; an area that became the Telehealth field.
Dr. David’s teachings became the modus operandi for the industry and are reflected in the guidelines for ambulatory cardiac monitoring of the American Heart Association and The American College Of Cardiology.
