*AliveInsights service only available in the U.S., AliveCor Heart Monitors available for sale in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland
The AliveCor System includes a free AliveCor account that connects you to your doctor, enabling convenient and unprecedented control of your heart health.
Until now, monitoring your heart health may have meant wearing an uncomfortable monitor or coping with infrequent visits to the doctor. The AliveCor System gives you the freedom to easily track your cardiac rhythms whenever you want and receive a detailed report at anytime. This enables you to engage with your doctor between appointments.
AliveCor’s Heart Monitor is an FDA cleared, single-channel ECG recorder that is portable and easy to use. The Heart Monitor leverages your smartphone to record, display, store and transfer your ECG through the AliveECG application.
AliveCor’s Heart Monitor is intended for use by licensed U.S. medical professionals and prescribed patients.
Without waiting for an appointment, get expert analysis and review of your ECG with AliveInsights. You can choose to receive a technical review by a Cardiac Technician or a more in-depth clinical review from a U.S. Board-Certified Cardiologist.Learn more about AliveInsights
With thousands of ECG recordings already contributed by the AliveCor user community, the artificial intelligence in the AliveCor System continues to gain knowledge. Adding your recording will help clinicians potentially develop methods for earlier detection of symptoms that could lead to cardiac problems.
The AliveCor System collects data from patients and physicians around the world. All ECG recordings are kept anonymous and confidential, but collectively can be used to advance cardiac care. And this is just the beginning: in the future we expect to bring you more personalized data on trends in your health, on monitoring your heart after a procedure and on several cardiac conditions.
The AliveCor System makes communicating with your doctor easy. Your doctors can request to have access to all your recordings by logging into their free AliveCor account through our secure, HIPAA compliant website at their convenience.Learn more about granting ECG access
AliveCor's Heart Monitor has been used in several clinical trials along with rigorous testing through numerous medical professionals and in many ongoing studies at USC's Center for Body Computing, Scripps Health, Oklahoma Health Sciences center, UCSF's Health eHeart study and many other institutions. Presented and published clinical trial papers and abstracts demonstrate Alivecor's usability, clinical accuracy, and screening capabilities.

Anytime ECG monitoring, as an adjunct to a smart phone, is intuitive and allows users to learn about and characterize their heart rates and rhythms. It provides global identification of arrhythmias at any time. The implications of this technology for improving public awareness of health metrics and for the early diagnosis of arrhythmias in large patient populations are enormous.

A high quality single-lead ECG can be rapidly and simply recorded using an iPhone with the AliveCor application, to accurately diagnose AF, making this an ideal enabling technology for community screening programs to detect silent AF. Screening programs utilizing this device could have a substantial impact on reducing ischemic stroke related to previously undiagnosed AF.
The iPhone-based event recorder is an accurate clinical tool for ECG assessment and could prove to be a new tool for allowing immediate recording and analysis of an ECG rhythm. Additional analysis of QT interval and QRS duration is needed.

ECG screening identified a sizable cohort with previously unknown AF, at sufficient risk to require OAC for stroke prevention. High overall stroke risk, relatively low OAC prescriptions, and poor knowledge of diagnosed AF sufferers highlight the need for community-based screening and education. This study demonstrates a feasible strategy using iECG in pharmacies to address these gaps.

The iPhone iECG can be readily applied to a screening setting and with the automated algorithm has sufficient accuracy to become a valuable technology for community-based or primary care screening for undetected AF to prevent stroke.
The AliveCor technology has extended my medical practice into the living rooms of my patients. The technology leapfrogs so many barriers of communication that have historically existed between me and my patients. Simple, fast and effective, cardiac rhythm diagnostics in the hands of my patients. This is the new direction of advanced care.
I like the convenience and ease of use to obtain a mono lead EKG recording. This has helped my patients who, other than being surprised by the new technology, benefit so heart arrhythmia or an infarction may be ruled out.
I have atrial fibrillation that comes and goes. Sometimes it's more severe than others. AliveCor allows me to take an ECG and immediately see what's going on. This is very comforting. It's also nice to have the record over time of the afib episodes to see the progression of my condition.
It's so convenient that the AliveCor device fits on my iPhone. I always have my phone with me, and I always have my AliveCor device with me, ready to record at any time. It gives me peace of mind.
It is very comforting to be able to see my ECG whenever I want.
As a patient with asymptomatic Atrial Fibrillation, the AliveCor Heart Monitor has been invaluable. The ability to take an ECG reading at any time provides me with a sense of reassurance regarding my heart condition and makes me an active participant in my monitoring my health
I have already started to use the device to record ECGs. As a scientific professional I am fascinated by this technology; and as a sufferer from AF I will be looking forward to being able to capture the runs of palpitations / arrhythmias that I get very occasionally but have never been able to coincide with my wearing of a Holter monitor.
