HAMILTON, ON, September 19, 2019 / – Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTCQB:RQHTF) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a technology company focused on developing innovative mobile health (mHealth) and telemedicine solutions for Community-Based Healthcare, today announced that it has signed new contracts with five home health agency clients in Dallas and Laredo, Texas.
“With these five new contracts Reliq continues to build on our momentum in Texas”, said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “All five of these new clients have either already begun onboarding patients to our iUGO Care platform or will go live by the end of this month. The increasing demand for our remote patient monitoring solution in Texas, across the US and internationally is reflective of the global health crisis that uncontrolled chronic disease represents. According to the CDC, Texas Medicaid spends over $1 Billion annually on diabetes-related medical care alone. Over 10% of all adults in Texas have diabetes and over 30% have hypertension. Simple interventions like engaging these patients in their own care and alerting the patient’s care team to early warning signs can help prevent complications, keeping patients out of the costly acute care setting. Helping patients manage their health in their own homes not only reduces healthcare costs but also preserves autonomy and independence, while providing peace of mind for families who want to respect and support their loved ones’ wishes to age in place.”
Reliq Health Technologies is a healthcare technology company that specializes in developing innovative software solutions for the Community Care market. Reliq’s powerful iUGO Care platform supports care coordination and community-based healthcare. The iUGO Care platform integrates wearables, sensors, voice technology and intuitive mobile apps and desktop user interfaces for patients, clinicians and healthcare administrators. iUGO Care allows complex patients to receive high quality care at home, improving health outcomes, enhancing quality of life for patients and families and reducing the cost of care delivery. iUGO Care provides real-time access to remote patient monitoring data, allowing for timely interventions by the care team to prevent costly hospital readmissions and ER visits. Reliq Health Technologies trades on the TSX Venture under the symbol RHT and on the OTCQB as RQHTF.
