When was the last time someone looked at your heart?

Why early detection matters.

A recent study looked at close to 1 million patients newly diagnosed with heart failure and found that over ⅓ were diagnosed in the emergency department or other inpatient hospital setting. Of these patients, nearly half had potential heart failure symptoms in the prior 6 months.

Our goal is to prevent missed opportunities to take early action and avoid expensive hospital visits by empowering people with valuable information about their heart.

How It Works:

2

Get scanned by a healthcare worker in the comfort of your home.

3

Frequently Asked Questions

What information does the heart health exam provide?

The heart health exam leverages our Caption Guidance and Caption Interpretation ultrasound technologies, as well as readings by independent physicians, to provide key measurements of cardiac structure and function.

This information can be especially valuable for people with hypertension, coronary artery disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, obesity, current or former smokers, or those with a personal or family history of heart disease.

Does the heart health exam diagnose disease?

The heart health exam does not diagnose disease.* We recommend discussing your results with a primary care physician or other healthcare provider for further evaluation and possible diagnosis.

*Caption Health does not provide medical services. This exam is for preventative purposes to gain information regarding your heart. Caption Health will not provide a diagnosis, treatment, or plan of care.

Who is eligible for a heart health exam?

The heart health exam is currently available for adults in the Bay Area, California located in San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Alameda counties.

In order to provide the best possible care, we unfortunately cannot screen individuals in the following categories:

  • Patients who weigh more than 350 pounds
  • Patients who are wheelchair bound, unable to lay down on their back or side, or unable to change positions easily on their own
  • Patients with acute symptoms of heart failure (shortness of breath, chest pain, etc.)

These more complex care needs are best addressed by a full echocardiogram performed by a specialist.

Who performs the heart health exam?

The in-home cardiac ultrasound portion of the exam is performed by a healthcare worker. A physician then conducts a clinical review of the captured ultrasound images and generates the final exam results.

How much does the heart health exam cost?
