Closer to the Threshold of Profitability

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Semler Scientific, Inc.

"We continue to see improvement in our net loss as our clients continue to migrate to QuantaFlo™, our latest cardiovascular product, and as we control our expenses," said Doug Murphy-Chutorian, M.D., chief executive officer of Semler. "These upgrades along with business from new clients are central features of our plan to achieve the goals of profitability, positive cash flow from operations and minimal stockholder dilution," he added.

2016 Highlights to Date

The major accomplishments of 2016 to date are as follows:

  1. Increased the established base of QuantaFlo™ installations with large health insurance company customers
  2. Continued migrating customers to QuantaFlo™ from its lower-priced predecessor product
  3. Contracted with home risk assessment ("HRA") companies to use QuantaFlo™ in their businesses

For the remainder of 2016, revenue from QuantaFlo™ is expected to continue to grow due to an increasing number of installations, higher average pricing and the recurring revenue business model.

Semler now no longer plans to be a primary vendor for WellChec™ business in the fourth quarter of 2016, preferring instead to work as a secondary vendor to support its HRA customers to deliver this type of service.  WellChec™ was responsible for both substantial revenue growth and associated start-up costs in 2015. Semler's focus on its QuantaFlo business is intended to use less capital, have lower financial risk and require less operational expertise, while potentially being a substantially higher margin business.

"We continue to grow QuantaFlo revenue and to reduce our net operating loss, and we are nearing profitability," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian.  "Our desire is to become the standard of care for testing to identify patients at risk for heart attacks and strokes to enable better preventive medical care," he added.

About Semler Scientific, Inc.:

Semler Scientific, Inc., is an emerging growth company that provides technology and software solutions to improve the clinical effectiveness of healthcare insurers and physician groups. Our mission is to develop, manufacture and market innovative proprietary products and services that assist our customers in evaluating and treating chronic diseases. Our first patented and U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, cleared product, introduced commercially in 2011, measured arterial blood flow in the extremities to aid in the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease. In March 2015 we received FDA 510(k) clearance for the next generation version of this product named QuantaFlo™, which was commercially launched in August 2015 to more comprehensively evaluate our customers' patients for risk of heart attacks and strokes. We believe we are positioned to provide valuable information to our insurance company and physician customers, which in turn permit them to better guide patient care.
