Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. Announces New Contracts to Onboard over 8,000 New Patients
HAMILTON, Ontario, April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTC:RQHTF or WKN:A2AJTB) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing global healthcare technology company that develops innovative Virtual Care solutions for the multi-billion dollar Healthcare market, today announced that it has signed four new US contracts with three individual physician practices in Texas and California and a health network in Nevada that includes 10 family physician practices. Together these providers are expected to add over 8,000 new patients to Reliq’s iUGO Care platform this year.
“Onboarding of both new clients and new patients continues to accelerate this quarter,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO at Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “Market demand for Reliq’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), Chronic Care Management (CCM), Behavioural Health Integration (BHI) and additional specialized virtual care solutions is rapidly increasing as physicians and payors recognize the benefits of proactively managing at-risk patients in the home to prevent complications. Both the scope of the virtual care programs funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the level of reimbursement have increased dramatically over the last several years. Our physician clients can now collect over $400 per patient per month in new, high profit revenue by deploying Reliq’s iUGO Care platform. Preventative care enabled by iUGO Care can help payors reduce the average cost of care per patient by over 80% by enabling early interventions by the patient’s primary care physician, preventing costly and disruptive hospitalizations and ER visits. Patients using iUGO Care benefit from improved health outcomes and better quality of life, as well as increased patient-reported satisfaction with care. We are very pleased to be adding 8,000 new patients through these contracts and expect to begin onboarding next month. The contracts are expected to generate an average revenue of over $60 per patient per month at 75% gross margin.”
