HAMILTON, Ontario, Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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, today announced the release of the latest version of its proprietary software platform, iUGO Care v.2019.
