Preventing Disability in High-Risk Stroke Patients with Sandra Saldana, CEO and Co-Founder at Alva Health
Dr. Sandra Saldana, CEO and Co-Founder at Alva Health, has always been passionate about building things that don’t exist, doing things that are unprecedented, and building something from scratch. This passion drove her to entrepreneurship in the medtech space and she has dedicated her whole life and career to the healthcare space.
In this episode of the Outcomes Rocket MedTech, Dr. Saldana discusses how her company automated the process of stroke symptom recognition and emergency response without relying on the user to have input. She explains the value prop of the Alva wristband for both patients and insurance, setbacks and insights, and more.
It’s estimated that about one in four U.S. adults over the age of twenty-five actually have a high risk of stroke. Alva’s wristband enables around-the-clock continuous long-term monitoring of stroke symptoms in a remote way, using a lightweight, user-friendly, unobtrusive form factor.
