The company's innovative technology includes remote patient monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management services, a new 3D Virtual Caregiver™, named Addison, advanced medical alerts, and telehealth solutions. Recently, the company released its certified ADDI telehealth platform, a scalable Platform-as-a-Service (PAAS) built on AWS.
The company anticipates their next round of funding will have a pre-valuation of $560 million, raising an additional $100 million. The new funds will dramatically grow ECG's revenues and customer base leading to an expected IPO within 24 months. To date, the company has raised $110 million in equity + $10 million in debt, totaling $120 million.
"ECG's ability to navigate through the pandemic and excel at hyper-growth during this difficult time has been both exciting and significant," said investor Harvey Yates, Jr., President of PetroYates, Inc. "We have supported the company through successive rounds and look forward to standing by their side when they go public and ring the bell on the NASDAQ."
"ECG's revenue growth is currently accelerating at hyper-growth, we project revenues to hit an annual $250 million + run rate by the end of 2024," said Baffoe. "The company now serves 20,000+ customers and estimates their customer base will exceed 250,000 by the end of 2024."

ECG debuted Addison, the Virtual Caregiver™, at the 2022 HIMSS Global Health Conference. Addison is the next generation of RPM technology, offering a solution to the global caregiver crisis and the ongoing COVID-19 challenges by providing healthcare management outside the doctor's four walls.
Addison is a state-of-the-art, 3D-animated caregiver. The Virtual Caregiver™ engages with and helps monitor the health of aging and chronically ill clients and child patients via touch-screen devices placed throughout a home.
Addison helps monitor patients' health by providing voice-driven medication reminders, 24/7 emergency response, and telehealth services. Addison can also lead patients through the steps of recording vitals, such as blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, and temperature, with the ability to share that information with designated providers and caregivers in real time.
Users can customize the Virtual Caregiver™ to fit users' preferences. Clients can choose from eight avatars of different ethnicities and genders to interact with, and Addison's environment can automatically mirror client lighting and weather. Pre-orders are currently underway.
