HAMILTON, Ontario, Oct. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTC:RQHTF or WKN:A2AJTB) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing global telemedicine company that develops innovative Virtual Care solutions for the multi-billion dollar Healthcare market, today announced that through its collaboration with digiiMed it has signed contracts with three new primary care physician practices in Puerto Rico to provide its iUGO Care platform to their chronic disease patients.
“Puerto Rico is a rapidly growing geography for Reliq thanks to our partnership with digiiMed,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “We are pleased to be adding these three new physician practices on the island to our platform. Chronic disease is a major concern for the healthcare system in Puerto Rico as over 50% of the population over age 50 have hypertension, over 30% have diabetes and over 42% have high cholesterol, all of which are risk factors for the development of other serious chronic diseases including congestive heart failure, kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. Patients living with chronic conditions also report higher levels of depression and anxiety than the general population. Using our iUGO Care Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Behavioural Health Integration (BHI) modules, clinicians can comprehensively address their patients’ physical and mental health needs. We expect to onboard over 3,600 patients with these clients at an average revenue of $40 USD per patient per month for Reliq. Onboarding will begin this month and is expected to be completed in early 2022.”
digiiMED is a digital medicine services company devoted to connecting patients with healthcare providers anytime, anywhere. digiiMED works with clinical providers and patients throughout Puerto Rico and Latin America. Learn more at http://www.digiimed.com.
