  • A monitoring service staffed by trained clinicians who monitor the patients 7days/week and call the patient in response to changes in their health detected by the technology

Spire Health’s customers are outpatient pulmonology groups, hospitals and health systems, as well as research organizations seeking to use Spire Health’s unique technology to improve patient care or advance medical knowledge. Spire has signed up over 20 customers, enrolled over 4000 patients and is present in over 10 states.
