Acarix accelerates US market entry with Proximo Medical as commercialization partner
Acarix today announced the signing of a Commercial Access agreement with Proximo Medical, LLC, to rapidly initiate the commercialization of the CADScor system in the US market. With the agreement, Acarix immediately gains market access and a senior cardiovascular sales force covering selected states in the US, as a complement to Acarix direct-to-market strategy.
The CADScor® System is technology using AI and a smart sensor to rule out Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) in patients experiencing symptoms of suspected stable CAD. It is a non-invasive assessment and provides results to heath care professionals and patients in less than 10 minutes. With 9 out 10 patients undergoing CAD diagnostic testing not having CAD, the CADScor® System has significant potential in reducing millions of unnecessary, invasive, and costly diagnostic procedures and giving patients peace of mind. The CADScor system received FDA De Novo clearance in 2020, and a CPT III code approval by AMA in October 2021.
Proximo Medical is sales accelerator company with a nationwide cardiovascular medical technology focused sales organization. Their excellent expertise lies in the ability to provide rapid market access to innovative medical solutions to various health care providers and integrated hospital networks. Within the scope of the agreement, Acarix gains rapid access to key health care providers through the sales organization and will on top of sales be able to validate the US go to market strategy. Acarix will be invoicing customers and compensating Proximo via standard market commission terms

Proximo is an ideal partner to cover certain states and market verticals as part of our go-to-market strategy.”
