About us

Our story

Sidhant and Javier originally met in 2005 at Medtronic, where they became intimately acquainted with cardiac patient monitoring algorithms. Through subsequent commercial roles in medtech and diagnostics, the two realized that many of the limitations of current remote monitoring systems could be overcome with a novel integration of digital and blood biomarkers, and brought on a long-time colleague with a hospital delivery background, Sean Matsuoka, to start GPx.

GPx’s leadership combines several successful track records and customer relationships in the heart failure, cardiac rhythm management, blood diagnostics, and hospital delivery spaces.
