Spire Health and Mayo Clinic Announce Collaboration to Co-Develop Remote Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program
SAN FRANCISCO,CA – June 29, 2021 -- Spire Health and Mayo Clinic announced a collaboration to integrate Mayo Clinic’s remote pulmonary rehabilitation program into Spire Health’s industry-leading respiratory remote patient monitoring (RPM) service.
Developed byDr. Roberto Benzo and his team at the Mindful Breathing Laboratory, MayoClinic’s remote pulmonary rehabilitation program has been the recipient of multiple, multi-year grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH). The program, validated using randomized controlled trials, combines health coaching, passive monitoring, and guided exercises to help patients living with chronic respiratory diseases proactively improve their quality of life. The two organizations are expected to pilot this combined offering in 2021 with commercial rollout slated for early 2022.
“Dr. Benzo has been a leading researcher of pulmonary rehabilitation for over 20 years, leading to the most well-validated remote pulmonary rehabilitation we’ve seen,”said Neema Moraveji, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer of Spire Health. “Pulmonary rehabilitation is a natural complement to Spire’s ‘early detection’ system, which uses artificial intelligence atop the industry’s leading respiratory sensors to detect respiratory deterioration before patients themselves do. We are honored and excited to make the outputs of Dr. Benzo’s research available to patients everywhere.”
