Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (RHT:TSX.V; RQHTF:OTCQB) announced in a news release it partnered to provide its iUGO CARE remote patient monitoring (RPM) platform to a U.S. pharmacy network for use with its chronic disease patients.
The pharmacy network manages pharmacies in 10 states mostly along the East Coast and consists of 10,000 prescribing physicians who treat patients with chronic conditions including diabetes, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and elevated blood pressure. Along with general services, the pharmacies provide specialized ones such as dispensing medications for long-term care, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities.
"Reliq's iUGO CARE platform can help empower and engage patients coping with chronic conditions at home or in residential care facilities, helping to improve their health with medication adherence tools and remote monitoring of key health metrics," Reliq CEO Lisa Crossley said in the release.
In other partnership news, announced in a separate news release, Reliq will provide to Smart Meter, a Florida-based diabetes management technology company, its iUGO CARE RPM and Chronic Care Management solutions for patients with diabetes and other chronic conditions.
For this relationship, Reliq will integrate its platform into Smart Meter's iGlucose diabetes management system. "Combining our iGlucose meter and cost effective test strips and Reliq's iUGO CARE platform to support caregiver workflows, automatically collect key patient health data and connect residents to physicians through virtual visits will create new revenue models for residential care, increase profits and enhance patient and family satisfaction," Smart Meter CEO Brahim Zabeli said in the release.
Also, Smart Meter, to garner additional clients, will obtain contract outreach and engagement services through Reliq's call center in Port St. Lucie, Fla. The center's purpose is to implement Reliq's RPM and CCM solutions with patients, physicians and payors.[NLINSERT]
