About Us

Hypertension is the leading modifiable risk factor for death and disability in the world. Controlling hypertension is the top health priority in the United States and worldwide:

The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Control Hypertension reports that hypertension widely affects nearly half of the U.S. adult population and is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in this country.

The 2023 World Health Organization Report on Hypertension estimates that hypertension affects an estimated 1.4 billion adults globally, and leads to over 10 million deaths per year.

Nearly half of adults have hypertension, and only a fourth with hypertension have it under control. This places millions of Americans at the heightened risk of devastating effects of hypertension, including heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and other leading causes of death in the United States.


The time to act is now.


The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Control Hypertension

Uncontrolled hypertension results in heart attacks, strokes, and premature death, along with substantial economic losses for communities and countries.  It drives and worsens virtually all chronic diseases.


Accurate and reliable measurement of blood pressure is essential for the proper diagnosis and management of hypertension. The biggest challenge and unmet need in clinical cardiology today is accurate blood pressure data that is easily obtained and readily available to treating physicians.


The ramifications of inaccurate and difficult to obtain patient blood pressure data on a global level are profound. Qura’s revolutionary platform is specifically designed to address this unmet need and thus drive better care of patients with this devastating disease.
