The ability to listen is the ability to care for the heart.

Eko is a venture-backed digital health company which harnesses the power of smartphones and cloud data for screening and monitoring individuals with cardiovascular diseases. We have built a platform of non-invasive cardiovascular monitoring devices, clinical software, and point-of-care decision support software to improve the delivery of cardiovascular care.

In 2015, we launched the Eko Core Digital Stethoscope, the first FDA-cleared digital stethoscope on the market to wirelessly stream heart and lung sounds to HIPAA-compliant software. It is now used by clinicians at over 1000 hospitals & health systems around the globe and was recognized as a “Best Invention of the Year” by TIME Magazine.  Eko’s latest FDA-cleared device, DUO, is the first combined digital stethoscope and ECG cardiac monitor with cardiac AI for in-clinic and at-home monitoring, offering 28 million heart disease patients the ability to seamlessly send cardiac data to their physicians.

Eko was established in 2013 and has offices in Oakland and Hayward.
