Our story began in 2001 when an inquisitive cardiologist by the name of Dr. Arash Bereliani (a.k.a. Dr. B The Heart Doctor.) set out to discover how we could live to be 100 without dying from heart disease. Today, we believe the discoveries made will allow us to celebrate many 100th birthdays. Over the last decade, the discoveries have been successfully used in private practice to identify near-term risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD)-related events, e.g. heart attack or stroke, in cardiology patients and prevent death. The outcome: Not one patient has died from heart disease.
B100 was founded in 2017 by experts in cardiology and business to bring the discoveries–once available exclusively to high net-worth, private-practice cardiology patients–directly to consumers nationwide at an affordable price. The name “B100” was chosen for the company’s inspired vision: that we should all live to Be 100! Our company mission is to become a leading authority in cardiac risk assessment and heart disease prevention. We are revolutionizing preventive cardiology by empowering consumers with app-based tools and home testing that are state of the art to assess, monitor, and track their heart health from home.
Heart Disease Is Still America’s #1 Killer. Time to Disrupt the Status Quo
The driving force behind B100 was the continued frustration that—while heart disease continues to be the #1 killer in the U.S. (693,000 deaths in 2021), Americans have largely ignored traditional messaging from the medical establishment telling them to adopt heart-healthy lifestyle modifications such as better diet and moderate exercise–and, due to the pandemic, there has been a huge drop-off in doctor visits, setting the stage for more heart disease cases and highlighting the need for more home-based diagnosis. B100, a comprehensive app-based method, stands ready to shake up and disrupt the industry by addressing these needs, making heart health testing and compliance easy and accessible to all.
The Pandemic Made Our Case for Us
Two and a half years into the pandemic, heart attack and stroke rates have surged. Why? (1) People had to stop seeing their doctors because providers curtailed non-emergency visits, and many screening tests that would have caught dangerous heart problems were not performed. (2) People infected with COVID are known to have suffered cardiac damage, whether they realized it or not. This has created a new, unforeseen risk.
The Take-Home Message? Take Home B100’s Heart Health Home Test
The take-home message is that people should be taking home B100’s Heart Health Home Test. Because they have not been going to the cardiologist. In addition, our test gives them a fuller range of screenings than most doctors’ screenings would–at a fair price–without the hassle of having to leave your house.
Our Company mission is to lead the 21st century through the prevention of heart disease – one heart at a time.
