HEALTHSPACE DEPLOYS COVID-19 CONTACT TRACING IN THREE US COUNTIES AS THE STATE OF HAWAII BEGINS REAL-TIME TRACING
HealthSpace Data Systems Ltd. has begun working with Bay County (Michigan), Cass County (Illinois) and Wilson County (North Carolina) to utilize the company's HSCloud Suite platform for COVID-19 contact tracing across each county. All three counties reached out to HealthSpace last week after hearing of the product and requested access to the platform to begin setup. The Company provided access to these counties on April 21 and is providing use of the platform on a gratis basis for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the State of Hawaii has completed internal trials and has begun utilizing the platform for COVID-19 contact tracing across the state.
The demand for HealthSpace's contact tracing platform has been rapidly growing as word has spread since it first announced the initial release of the platform with Okanogan, Washington and Vancouver Island two weeks ago. Numerous agencies have proactively reached out after hearing about the platform. As public health agencies and officials are ever increasingly busy during this time, the Company has been providing regular demonstrations of the platform, online, numerous times a week to make it easier for agencies interested to get a look at how the platform works.
HealthSpace CEO, Silas Garrison, commented, "I am immensely proud of how our team has worked tirelessly to implement this platform and get it into the hands of those agencies in need. Having only first released the contact tracing platform two weeks ago, I am amazed at the demand we are already seeing. We are continually refining the process and configurations for each agency, as well as adding new product additions, so that our platform can continually be an exponential force multiplier to the work these agencies are doing."
The Company also announces it has entered into an agreement with Primoris Group Inc. to provide the Company with media relations, investor relations and corporate communications expertise. The initial term of the agreement is three months and will be month-to-month thereafter. The Company will pay the Primoris Group CAD$5,000 a month as well as issue to the Primoris Group an option to purchase 250,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share exercisable for a period of five years. https://twitter.com/healthspace/status/1253687885800321024?s=20
