The company’s suite of remote patient monitoring technologies includes a Blood Pressure Cuff, Digital Weight Scale, Emergency Watch, and Blood Glucose Monitor.

Ava's healthcare assistant reviews a patient’s demographics, medical history, and biotelemetry to personalize how it communicates to each individual person, reports MedGadget. It uses machine learning to enable patients to interact, ask questions, and receive tailored responses while following strict security and adherence to patient privacy regulations. The company reports that Ava has already facilitated 660,000 health alerts and three million device readings.

“When we developed Ava, we considered the fact that seniors are not only less tech-savvy, but also less trusting of new technologies. Ava is remarkable because it leverages machine learning to personify the staff at a physician's practice, providing a truly personal touchpoint. This is important because we know that these patients are more responsive to direct physician advice and the technology comes across as a member of the practice. Ava also works through SMS and doesn’t require an app or internet service,” Ryan Howard, CEO of 100Plus told MedGadget’s Conn Hastings in an interview.

Today, 80 percent of U.S. seniors over the age of 65 have at least one chronic disease which accounts for 95 percent of Medicare spending.

The company has ramped revenue to $5M in annual recurring revenue since its launch in January of 2020 and is poised to continue to build upon this growth.
