VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 12, 2018 (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, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with AnglicareSA in Adelaide, Australia to provide its iUGO Care remote patient monitoring platform to their home care clients on a trial basis.
“We are very excited to be working with AnglicareSA to improve access to care for older Australians,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “AnglicareSA operates six residential care facilities and provides home care to more than 1,500 Australians. The iUGO Care platform will enable AnglicareSA to trial remote patient monitoring services for clients in their own homes, improving access to care for patients with chronic diseases. Reliq is starting to gain significant traction in Australia, where the government has made home care a priority with the Increasing Choice in Home Care measure, implemented in 2017. With over 3.5 million Australians aged 65 and over and a progressive single payer system that has committed significant funding to home care, the Australian market is a perfect fit for Reliq’s iUGO Care platform.”
“AnglicareSA respects and cares for older people in their own homes, in residential aged care facilities and in the community,” said Daniel Aitchison, of AnglicareSA. “We are committed to supporting older people to live full and rewarding lives and to respecting their choices. We look forward to trialing Reliq Health remote monitoring services as we continue to deliver high quality care and support to our clients and their families.”
