bring their first product to market (a wearable asthma detection device) and
develop several commercial relationships. As CEO of UR Medicine, I was very

controlling clinical exacerbations, especially in children. We showed that a
community-based effort, “The Breath of Hope” was able to significantly reduce
the number of ER visits of children with asthma. I believe that HCO’s device
and its platform technology, which puts the power of disease recognition and
treatment in the hands of the patient, will dramatically change health care

that adopt its technology as part of population health management,” said Dr.
