Biotricity Announces the Upcoming Launch of the First-Ever Direct-to-Patient Cardiac Screening Service, Targeting the $1.05B Home Heart Health Market


REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 30, 2024 / Biotricity Inc. (NASDAQ:BTCY), a leading Technology-as-a-Service (TaaS) company dedicated to disrupting the healthcare industry with cutting-edge medical and consumer diagnostic solutions, is thrilled to announce plans for a revolutionary direct-to-consumer program, HeartSecure, to support the 127M Americans at risk for heart disease. HeartSecure offers the first-of-its-kind, home-based cardiac screening service, empowering individuals to proactively check their heart health from the comfort of their homes. When launched, this groundbreaking home-based cardiac screening service will be a significant milestone for Biotricity, positioning the company for increased growth and market penetration in the $1.05B Home Heart Health market.

Individuals are currently facing, on average, 1 month wait times for a heart health screening with a cardiologist, alongside additional barriers such as financial constraints and insurance limitations. To address these challenges and support the ultimate goal of improving outcomes, Biotricity is combining its state-of-the-art technology with the expertise of top cardiologists to catch potential heart issues early with HeartSecure.

The urgency for accessible proactive cardiac health screenings has increased with the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increased heart disease risk. According to the CDC, approximately 60% of U.S. adults live with a chronic disease, and have significantly higher risk of developing heart disease. With 127 million U.S. adults, nearly half of the population, having one or more risk factors for heart disease, the need for accessible proactive cardiac health screenings has never been more urgent.

"Biotricity is not just democratizing healthcare, we are revolutionizing lives," remarked Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Founder and CEO of Biotricity. "With HeartSecure, we empower individuals to take control of their cardiac health. HeartSecure's launch will signify a pivotal moment in our mission to redefine healthcare accessibility and enable individuals to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives."

This growing need for preventative and chronic disease management has caused a seismic shift in the healthcare landscape, more than quadrupling the adoption of tele- and home-based solutions since the COVID-19 pandemic. The critical shortage of healthcare workers has further driven this trend. The U.S. faces a projected shortage of up to 86,000 physicians by 2036, with large hospitals already experiencing challenges with filling open cardiologist positions.

Biotricity's HeartSecure direct-to-consumer service not only addresses the pressing need for accessible cardiac health screenings but also symbolizes the shift towards proactive, patient-centric healthcare solutions. By providing a convenient and effective way to monitor heart health, HeartSecure is set to revolutionize cardiac care and improve the lives of millions.
