‘This is the year of execution’
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – After partnering with two home health agencies earlier this year, Reliq Health Technologies recently hit 1,000 patients live on its remote patient monitoring platform.
“Everything we said we would do, we’re doing,” said Giancarlo De Lio, chief visionary officer at Reliq. “This is the year of execution.”
Reliq’s iUGO Health technology platform comprises hardware and software that allows complex patients to receive high quality care in the home, improving health outcomes and reducing the cost of care delivery.
In August, the company announced partnerships with Texas-based Paz Home Health and Rio Grande Valley Health Alliance, which, together, serve more than 40,000 patients. It has also secured pilot programs with several hospitals and organizations not only in the U.S., but also the U.K. and Canada.
Then in September, Reliq began work on developing a mobile health app for the city of San Antonio to help improve public health and awareness. The app will provide a telemedicine platform that connects patients to doctors and nurses anywhere there is Internet access. The mTelecare app will support video consultations for patients with health care professionals from their home, as well as provide automated prescription refills, search tools for health care services, a personalized health calendar with push notifications and a suite of billing and payment tools.
Moving forward, Reliq plans to continue to grow its user and client base. It has set a goal of 1,000 new patients every month.
“For us, it’s all about the current features of what we’re doing,” said De Lio. “We’re trying to stay on the edge of technology and now we get to show off what we do.”
