PAVmed Subsidiary, Veris Health, Signs Memorandum of Understanding with The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute

Parties to implement a pilot program of the Veris Cancer Care Platform

NEW YORK, April 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- PAVmed Inc. (Nasdaq: PAVM) ("PAVmed" or the "Company") a diversified commercial-stage medical technology company, operating in the medical device, diagnostics, and digital health sectors, and its majority-owned digital health subsidiary Veris Health Inc. ("Veris"), today announced that Veris and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (the "OSUCCC – James"), a National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, have executed a memorandum of understanding to implement a pilot program where cancer patients would be enrolled on the Veris Cancer Care Platform™.

"The OSUCCC – James is one of the largest and most prestigious academic cancer centers in the nation and we couldn't be more excited to work with such a renowned institution at the forefront of cancer care during the pilot program," said Lishan Aklog, M.D., PAVmed's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and Veris' Executive Chairman.

"Our vision is to enhance personalized cancer care through the use of cutting-edge digital health tools," said Gary K. Manning, Veris' President. "We look forward to completing a successful pilot program and to offering enhanced personalized cancer care to the thousands of patients who receive systemic cancer therapy there every year."

"At the OSUCCC – James, personalized, compassionate cancer care is at the core of what we do. Remote monitoring allows for the integration of expert, sub-specialized oncology care in a patient's own home, surrounded by their support system. This component of the cancer care continuum is yet another way we are engaging in the future of cancer care and is in line with our pursuit of a cancer-free world," said David Cohn, M.D., M.B.A., interim chief executive officer and chief medical officer at The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

The Veris Cancer Care Platform is a comprehensive digital cancer care platform with remote physiological data collection, symptom reporting, telehealth capability, and electronic health record integration. The platform offers enhanced personalized cancer care through the early detection of complications, reduced unplanned hospitalizations, the provision of longitudinal trends of physiological and clinical data, data-driven risk management tools, and increased patient and provider satisfaction.

Cancer patients enrolled on the platform receive a VerisBox™ of Veris-branded connected health care devices which transmit physiologic data to the cloud-based clinician portal via embedded cellular connections. A complementary patient portal enables patients to report symptoms, as well as general health and quality of life parameters, to their cancer care team through the Veris patient smartphone app. The app also allows caretakers and family members to follow along on the patient's cancer care journey. Veris is also developing an implantable physiological monitor, designed to be implanted alongside a vascular access port, which will interface with the Veris Cancer Care Platform. The implantable monitor will further enhance the clinical and commercial value of the platform by providing remote physiologic data independent of patient compliance.
