Oakland, California - May 23, 2023 - Eko Health, a leading innovator in digital health technology for heart and lung disease detection, today announced that it has been honored in Fast Company's World Changing Ideas global awards program and Inc. Magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. The company’s hybrid workforce is committed to developing innovative solutions for early heart and lung disease detection. This shared vision fuels its employees’ passion for creating impactful digital health products.
"We are proud to win the Inc. Best Workplaces and Fast Company World Changing Ideas awards for the second consecutive year,” said Connor Landgraf, Co-founder & CEO of Eko Health. “This remarkable achievement highlights the exceptional commitment of our employees and the ongoing success of our AI-powered digital tools in detecting early signs of cardiovascular disease. Together, we create tools for healthcare professionals that push the boundaries of the possible and can impact patient care around the globe."
Recognized in the AI and Data category, Eko Health’s SENSORA™️ Cardiac Disease Detection Platform was honored by Fast Company. SENSORA™ structural murmur detection, cleared by the FDA in 2022, noninvasively detects and characterizes heart murmurs with a digital stethoscope. SENSORA™ aims to help health systems more accurately and consistently identify murmurs related to valvular heart disease (VHD) in patients during a routine visit with their primary care physician. A primary care physician using SENSORA™ for structural murmur detection more than doubles their likelihood of detecting significant VHD.
“It’s thrilling to see the creativity and innovation that are so abundant among this year’s honorees,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, companies such as Eko Health show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems.”
Eko Health has been ranked among the highest-scoring businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list for two years in a row. Inc. selected the company after collecting data from thousands of best-in-class companies. Inc.’s 2023 Best Workplaces list consists of 591 honorees. These honorees represent a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or a virtual facility. Eko Health’s award-winning hybrid work model includes a suite of benefits to support its employees, including work-from-home office stipends, mental health subscriptions, a vacation bonus program, and telehealth options.
“Being named to Best Workplaces is an honor that only a small fraction of companies have been able to claim,” said Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Proving to the world that Eko Health continues to be a magnet for talent and has a culture that keeps teams engaged, productive, and proud to come to work is a truly remarkable achievement.”
