MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Lark Health, a digital healthcare company that provides an AI-powered prevention and management platform to people with chronic conditions, has joined the American Heart Association Center for Health Technology & Innovation’s (the Center) Innovators’ Network.

The Innovators’ Network is a consortium that connects entrepreneurs, providers, researchers and payers. Innovators’ Network members also have access to the Association’s digital guidelines, recommendations, and best-in-class science as they develop digital healthcare technologies. Members collaborate with the Center in different ways, including the building of models for clinical outcome studies, lowering the significant cost of developing those studies independently, helping connect the science to technology, and providing evidence that a digital platform improves healthcare outcomes – a key concern for providers and payers.

“The Center aims to advance the rapid, efficient, and effective development of healthcare technology,” said Eric Peterson, M.D., M.P.H., Vice Provost and Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Research at University of Texas Southwestern and volunteer chair of the Health Tech Advisory Group for the Center. “It’s incredibly encouraging to see Lark Health leveraging this consortium to broaden and deepen their engagement in this arena.”

“Our work at Lark centers around providing affordable, accessible care to manage and prevent chronic conditions and we’re excited to join the Association’s Innovators’ Network as we pursue our goals,” said Dr. Jason Paruthi, Medical Director at Lark. “Industry collaboration is key if we want to combat the growing chronic conditions epidemic and the Innovators’ Network creates a space where we can work to share new ideas, accelerate innovation, and create industry-wide connections.”
