Could be a major source of revenuenot only in Australia but
Many other countries with isolated populations eg Canada, India
Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTCQB:RQHTF) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a technology company that develops innovative mobile health (mHealth) and telemedicine solutions for the community-based healthcare market, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to conduct a three month paid pilot of its iUGO Care remote patient monitoring platform with the Royal Flying Doctor Service Central Operations (RFDS) in Australia, beginning this Fall.

“We are very excited to be working with the RFDS to improve health outcomes for individuals and their communities with this pilot in rural and remote South Australia,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “Approximately half a million people (2.05 percent of the Australian population) live in remote and very remote communities in Australia. Research by the RFDS has shown that remote Australians are 1.6 times more likely to be hospitalized for coronary heart disease than people in major cities and 1.3 times more likely to die. We look forward to working with the RFDS to improve health outcomes for these patients.”

The iUGO Care platform allows a patient’s care team to remotely monitor vital signs such as blood pressure, blood glucose, heart rate, oxygen saturation and lung function, and receive automated alerts if there are any abnormalities in these readings. iUGO Care allows the entire circle of care to be connected and informed, enabling better health outcomes, lower cost of care and improved quality of life.

The RFDS (www.flyingdoctor.org.au) is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organizations in the world, providing extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to people over an area of 7.69 million square kilometres. In 2017 over 336,000 patient encounters occurred through RFDS primary health clinics, aeromedical transports and telehealth consultations. The challenges of health access outside Australia’s cities make the RFDS vital to those who live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.
