Home ultrasound developer Pulsenmore Ltd announces the appointment of Hagar Spits as General Manager North America, as the company establishes US operations in Boston.
Hagar Spits joins Pulsenmore from Philips, where she headed Strategy & Engagement for the North America healthcare market. Prior to her most recent role, she led Philips Ultrasound Ventures and established its product roadmap.
The U.S. telehealth market has gained unparalleled momentum over the past years and is expected to reach over $300 billion USD by 2028 (U.S. Telehealth Market Report, 2022-2028, Grand View Research, Jan. 2022). Pulsenmore is well positioned for this market with its novel self-operated ultrasound solution, which, combined with a smartphone, enables pregnant women to self-scan for remote clinical assessment of their healthcare provider. The Pulsenmore solution for prenatal home ultrasound has already been implemented across Israel in partnership with the country’s largest HMO, Clalit Health Services.
“I am looking forward to leading a convenience and efficiency revolution in U.S. maternal health by putting families in the center and empowering women to play an active role in the management of their pregnancy from home,” Hagar commented. “I was inspired by Pulsenmore’s home ultrasound solutions and the incredible opportunity they hold in reducing maternal anxiety and identifying risks earlier, which may ultimately result in improved pregnancy outcomes – especially in underserved communities. It is a privilege to join the Pulsenmore team and build our presence in North America. Pulsenmore has the potential to become the new standard in pregnancy care for women everywhere, and the company is advancing an exciting product roadmap.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Hagar Spits to lead Pulsenmore’s geographical expansion into North America,” added Dr. Elazar Sonnenschein, Founder and CEO of Pulsenmore, from the company offices in Ramat Gan, Israel. “Hagar brings 20 years of healthcare experience across three continents and the right skillset as a seasoned commercial leader. I am confident she will direct our business growth successfully.”
Hagar holds a BSc in Biomedical Engineering from Tel Aviv University in Israel, and an MBA from INSEAD in France and Singapore.
