Westport, CT, Aug. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM) (“BioSig” or the “Company”), a medical technology company delivering unprecedented accuracy and precision to intracardiac signal visualization, announced today a subscription model for its PURE EP™ Platform. Cleveland Clinic—recently ranked as number one in the Nation for cardiology, heart & vascular surgery by U.S. News & World Report1—is first to sign an agreement to acquire the PURE EP™ Platform under the subscription model.
BioSig has made the move to a subscription model so that electrophysiologists and cardiology departments can access the latest features with the ability to customize the rich suite of PURE EP™ software capabilities to suit their needs. The proprietary combination of hardware and software empowers electrophysiologists with real-time, ultra-pure, cardiac signal data, with the potential to improve arrhythmia care and procedures.
“At BioSig, we aspire to be a true partner to the electrophysiology community; constantly advancing our technology to push the boundaries of signal hygiene, analysis, and data application," said Gray Fleming, Chief Commercial Officer of BioSig. “This subscription model expands access to PURE EP™’s novel and configurable software features as they become available and supports operational expenditure goals by optimizing case-by-case and day-to-day department expenses, removing the burden of ownership and maintenance.”
The agreement follows BioSig’s exhibition at the Heart Rhythm Society 2023 (“HRS 2023”) in May, known for being the largest gathering of heart rhythm professionals worldwide. During the conference, research conceptualized and spearheaded by Cleveland Clinic’s world-class physician faculty highlighted the PURE EP™ Platform’s ability to optimize ablation procedures. The data compared the efficacy of PURE EP™’s unipolar signal guidance to the current standard, the Ablation Index™ for radiofrequency ablation procedures during pulmonary vein isolation. Topline findings from the physician-initiated research revealed a 66% reduction in procedure time while maintaining accuracy, and enhancing precision during PVI.2,3,4
“Cleveland Clinic approached us with the idea to conduct research evaluating the utility and impact of our novel signal applications. A portion of this foundational research was presented at HRS 2023, and we were excited to collaborate with their world-class team of electrophysiologists,” commented Zach Koch, Principal Product Advisor of BioSig. “With a rich history of medical innovation and breakthroughs, Cleveland Clinic has piloted many cutting-edge cardiovascular technologies that are recognized as the standard of care today. We are proud to witness PURE EP™ in use at their clinic and excited to see their commitment to innovation continue as the first subscription-based customer, unlocking the full spectrum of clinical, operational, and economic benefits of the PURE EP™ Platform in a fully customizable package.”
With a comprehensive suite of tools available through the subscription model, the PURE EP™ Platform can deliver the latest developments in electrophysiology to physicians as they emerge, with the flexibility to add enhancements as desired.

About The PURE EP™ Platform
The PURE EP™ Platform serves physicians by enabling the real-time acquisition of raw cardiac signal data—absent of unnecessary noise or interference inherent in traditional approaches. By leveraging a first-of-its-kind combination of hardware and software, the PURE EP™ Platform is designed to deliver unprecedented intracardiac signal purity that pushes the boundaries of cardiac arrhythmia identification, diagnosis, and treatment.
In a blinded clinical study recently published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology 5, electrophysiologists rated PURE EP™ as superior to conventional systems for 75.2% of signal samples, with 93.6% earning a rating of equivalent or superior. Data presented at Heart Rhythm Society 2023 demonstrated the PURE EP™ Platform’s capacity to facilitate ablations in a third of the usual time, reducing procedure time and improving workflow efficiencies, without sacrificing accuracy, precision, or efficacy.
The PURE EP™ Platform is currently in a national commercial launch and an integral part of well-respected healthcare systems, including Mayo Clinic, Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute, Cleveland Clinic, and Kansas City Heart Rhythm Institute.
About BioSig Technologies, Inc.
BioSig Technologies is a medical technology company focused on deciphering the body’s electrical signals, starting with heart rhythms. By leveraging a first of its kind combination of hardware and software, we deliver unprecedented cardiac signal clarity, ending the reliance on ‘mixed signals’ and ‘reading between the lines.’ Our platform technology is addressing some of healthcare’s biggest challenges—saving time, saving costs, and saving lives.
The Company’s product, the PURE EP™ Platform, an FDA 510(k) cleared non-invasive class II device, provides superior, real-time signal visualization allowing physicians to perform highly targeted cardiac ablation procedures with increased procedural efficiency and efficacy.
An estimated, 14.4 million Americans suffer from cardiac arrhythmias, and the global EP market is projected to reach $16B in 2028 with an 11.2% growth rate.6
