Welcome to Stenoa

Stenoa’s mission is to make cardiovascular care more intelligent and intuitive.

We began by building machine learning and computer vision software to empower interventional cardiologists with real-time precision diagnostic insight for the treatment of coronary artery disease, but faced hurdles in transferring data to our company. This led us to sunset this vertical in the Summer of 2021, and since pivot to an earlier phase along the same care continuum.

We’re now building a cloud-based platform for mission critical care coordination, communication, and real-time analytics, so that healthcare providers can optimise the care delivery of patients actively undergoing a heart attack, the leading cause of death globally.

Over the past year, we’ve spent lots of time listening, learning, and building. We’ve heard from over 100 users that too many patients are slipping through the cracks of the system, and aren’t receiving the timely care necessary to save their lives. Worse, we’ve learnt that healthcare institutions are navigating quality improvement almost blindly, interpreting whatever poor quality performance data they can on a dismal basis. We’ve identified that the existing infrastructure for heart attack care in North America is fractionated, asynchronous, reliant on outdated technology (like pagers and fax machines), and truthfully, broken.

In a time where e-commerce, ride sharing, and food delivery companies have more insight into the status of your order than we do into heart attack care, we felt there was an obvious and unmet need to address. And the interest, traction, and feedback we’ve received from primary users so far is a testament to this reality. We’re especially grateful to our alpha partners for believing in our potential, working closely with our platform, and providing us with the feedback that brought our software to where it is today.

I started Stenoa with the foundational belief that software will optimise the intelligence and intuition of healthcare, and we’re just getting started. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
