HAMILTON, Ontario, Feb. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTC:RQHTF or WKN:A2AJTB) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing global healthcare technology company that develops innovative Virtual Care solutions for the multi-billion dollar Healthcare market, is pleased to announce that it has signed new contracts with three Assisted Living Facilities and three physician practices in Pennsylvania and California. The Company expects to onboard over 3,000 new patients to its iUGO Care platform through these contracts by the end of the year, at an average revenue of $65 per patient per month.
“We are very pleased to be expanding into Pennsylvania as well as continuing to grow our business in California,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO at Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “The Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) will be using our iUGO Home solution to provide in-facility emergency alerts, fall detection and geofencing, along with a secure portal for family members to monitor their loved one’s condition while in the ALF. The geofencing feature allows staff to receive alerts if a patient with cognitive issues attempts to leave the facility on their own. The facilities will also be using Reliq’s patient monitoring and telemedicine modules to track medication compliance, monitor vitals, and facilitate virtual visits for their residents with primary care providers and specialists such as cardiologists. Since many ALF residents have significant heath and mobility issues, virtual visits allow them to receive high quality care in the facility without the cost, inconvenience and risk of falls or exposure to COVID, RSV and influenza associated with being transported to their physician’s office. We expect to add over 3,000 patients to our iUGO Care platform by the end of this year through these contracts, at an average revenue of $65 per patient per month at 75% gross margin.”
“We’re often asked how we can use Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our iUGO Care platform to improve patient health outcomes,” continued Dr. Crossley. “The use case described above is a good example of a potential application of AI in iUGO Care. The fall detection data collected in Assisted Living Facilities along with the data on patients’ medications, clinical conditions and vital signs can be used with AI to create predictive algorithms that identify those patients who are most at risk of falls. This allows facilities to implement appropriate fall prevention measures for these at-risk patients, reducing falls and the resulting complications and hospitalizations. The combination of our comprehensive patient dataset with AI technology enables clients to provide proactive, preventative patient care to further safeguard their patients’ health and safety.”
