What is Cardiogram Care?
Cardiogram Care is a program that monitors you for undiagnosed health conditions using health data in Cardiogram. There are four steps to the Cardiogram Care process:
Step 1: Use the Cardiogram app
Cardiogram is free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and helps you track minute-to-minute changes in stress, sleep, fitness, and health through heart rate monitoring.
Step 2: Screen with DeepHeart
With Cardiogram Care, in addition to the heart rate graphs on your Cardiogram timeline, you'll also receive monitoring by DeepHeart, an artificial intelligence-based algorithm that has demonstrated high accuracy in detecting signs of three different health conditions: diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea. Once you complete your Cardiogram Care profile, there's nothing additional you need to do to be monitored—simply wear your watch and use Cardiogram as you normally would.
Step 3: Confirm with FDA-cleared test
If DeepHeart detects signs of a potential health condition, Cardiogram will offer you a free FDA-cleared or CLIA-certified confirmatory test. Most of these tests can be taken at home, and one test (A1C blood test) must be taken at a nearby Quest Diagnostics or LabCorp. Cardiogram will pay for this test and you will not be charged—we don't ask for any payment info.
Step 4: Share results + next steps
Once you take the test and we receive the results, you'll see the results in the "Care" tab of the Cardiogram app. If the results are in a normal range, further action may not be immediately necessary, but you should continue visiting your doctor as you normally would, or if you feel unwell. If the results are not normal (e.g. elevated blood pressure), we will recommend that you see your doctor to review the result and, if necessary, discuss potential treatment options.
How much does Cardiogram Care cost?
Cardiogram Care is free for you, but if we order you a test and the results of that test indicate signs of a new health condition, we will file a medical claim with your health insurance. You will not be billed for these claims, but in order for you to eligible for a test, we require that either (A) your insurance covers Cardiogram, or (B) you have out-of-network coverage and have met your out-of-network deductible. For more information: see: “Why might Cardiogram file a health insurance claim?”
