AliveCor has announced the appointment of Toby Cosgrove to its board of directors. For more than 13 years, through to 2017, Cosgrove served as president and chief executive officer of Cleveland Clinic where he was responsible for overseeing the quality of care for millions of patients annually.
“Over the course of my career, putting patients at the center of everything I do has been my guiding principle,” said Cosgrove. “I am excited for the opportunity to further AliveCor’s mission of making heartcare more accessible, affordable, and convenient. Their personal ECG technology paired with cutting-edge AI diagnostics is carving an entirely new space in digital health with the power to transform the quality, responsiveness, and cost of cardiac care worldwide.”
Prior to becoming CEO of Cleveland Clinic, Cosgrove was a practicing cardiothoracic surgeon, performing more than 22,000 operations. He also served as a surgeon in the US Air Force where he was awarded the Bronze Star and the Republic of Vietnam Commendation Medal.
“Dr Cosgrove is an invaluable addition to our board of directors and I am incredibly honoured to welcome him to the team,” said Priya Abani, CEO of AliveCor. “We are building a complete cardiac care solution to serve patients outside the exam room. Dr Cosgrove’s focus on patient care and patient experience will bring tremendous value as we pioneer this space. I have no doubt that we will benefit greatly from his extensive knowledge as we advance our mission of improving remote heart care for those who need it most.”
