Commenting on the launch, Rohit Kapoor, Senior Director & Chief Growth Officer at Max Healthcare said, “Heart related diseases are on the rise due to lifestyle choices people make and they don’t generally pay attention to their health. We have observed that patients usually take action when their disease has advanced significantly.”
He further added, “The GOQii Heart Care is an exclusive platform that connects the users and the specialists and enables them to work together towards preventative healthcare. We chose to partner with GOQii as they have been a frontrunner in the healthcare segment”.

The GOQii Heart Care is an one stop solution that tracks and analyses data generated by the Heart Rate trackers and can connect the GOQii user to doctor who can help make sense of the data. It is a unique offering as compared to any other wearable device or service available in the market”.
