LAS CRUCES, N.M., April 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Electronic Caregiver®, Inc. (ECG), an international digital health technology and services company, has contracted with Pinnacle Investments, LLC (Pinnacle), an investment advisor/broker-dealer, to act as a placement agent to obtain expansion capital for their telehealth business.
“Pinnacle is excited about our relationship with ECG and their vision for the extensive growth in the telehealth business,” Benjamin Quilty, Pinnacle’s Chief Executive Officer, said.
Pinnacle will offer ECG’s Series E Private Placement to accredited investors and qualified buyers within its population of wealth management clients.
“I was impressed with Pinnacle’s leadership committee, who conducted extensive due diligence and decided they wanted their accredited clients to have the opportunity to invest in ECG,” said Joseph M. Baffoe, ECG President. “We believe this is the beginning of a lasting relationship with Pinnacle and look forward to working with them.”
COVID-19 catalyzed a fundamental shift from episodic to predictive care using remote patient monitoring and telehealth. Research firm Rock Health reports that a record $6.7 billion of investment capital flowed into US digital health companies in Q1 2021. Following 10 years of research, product development, and piloting, ECG has entered the market and contracted with 20 health care organizations to provide solutions that improve patient care, enhance outcomes, and optimize resource utilization.
ECG has raised $75 million in developing products, securing IP, and building a go-to-market customer base. The company’s patented platform-as-a-service (PaaS), ADDI, is the most intelligent platform to deliver value-based care. ECG’s cutting-edge technology includes precision remote patient monitoring services, a new 3D Virtual Caregiver™, named Addison, advanced medical alerts, telehealth solutions, and a turn-key care coordination solution. ECG is under contract with numerous national care organizations, including MD Revolution, Renova Health, CCM Navigator, Zia Health Management, and Banner Health.
“Only 3% of America’s approximate 50 million informal family caregivers can afford professional caregiving. The aging population is a powder keg posing a dangerous threat to health care systems worldwide,” said Anthony Dohrmann, ECG Chief Executive Officer. “Connected Care is the only possible way to handle population health, effective pandemic management and chronic conditions, and eldercare support. ECG’s existing portfolio of products and services addresses these issues by providing affordable, accessible, and scalable solutions. Addison, once released later in 2021, will be transformational.”
