said Euan Thomson, president and chief executive officer at AliveCor.
“We are committed to continuing to grow and innovate in the cardiac health market. With this additional capital, we have the opportunity to invest and develop our technologies to ensure we meet the needs of both new and existing patients and physicians.”
