Relic Health Technologies is a telemedicine company that develops virtual care solutions for the healthcare market.

Details of the contract

According to the CEO of Relic Health Technologies, Dr Lisa Crossley, the RHC will use iUGO care to monitor patients with chronic diseases and prevent complications that could cause hospitalisations or death. In the last decade, the number of deaths due to chronic diseases in the US Virgin Islands has increased by 30% hence the need for tools and preventative measures to help patients.

The clinics will also use the company’s Behavioural Health Integration Mode to help patients with mental health problems. Such programs are not available in the US Virgin Islands, so iUGO will give health care providers ways to support these patients.

Onboarding will begin in September and will last till November. RHT is to receive revenue of $40 per patient in a month. 

Crossley states that the contract shows the demand for Relic developed software for a variety of geographies and clinical application

RHT announced its partnership with digiiMed on July 15, 2020. This partnership enabled them to expand their market to Puerto Rico, a US territory with more than 3 million people. About half of its population has at least one chronic illness. 

The partnership was to help safeguard the risk of the population of Puerto Rico during the pandemic when the hospitals were overwhelmed. 

RHT has a powerful iUGO care platform that enables community-based virtual healthcare and care coordination. It allows patients with chronic illnesses to receive care while at home, thus lowering the cost of delivering care, improving outcomes and the patient’s quality of life.

Healthcare providers get real-time access to patients in remote areas to monitor them and give timely interventions to prevent hospital readmission.

DigiiMed is a company that provides digital medicine services and connects patients to their healthcare providers at any place or time. It provides services in Latin America and Puerto Rico.
