HAMILTON, Ontario, May 06, 2021- Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTC:RQHTF or WKN:A2AJTB) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing global telemedicine company that develops innovative Virtual Care solutions for the multi-billion dollar Healthcare market, today announced that it has four new Skilled Nursing Facility clients in the Southern United States, and is expanding its Care Management team in response to significant demand for the Company’s Care Management Services.
“We are very pleased to be working with these four new Skilled Nursing Facilities and expect to begin onboarding their patients next month,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) were among the hardest hit by the global pandemic, but thanks to the successful vaccine rollout in the US they are now able to resume operations and focus on offering new, proactive healthcare options to their patients. Using our iUGO Care platform, SNFs can provide discharged patients with Transitional Care Management, Remote Patient Monitoring, Annual Wellness Visits and other services aimed at preventing readmissions and proactively managing chronic conditions to improve health outcomes. These services create new, high margin revenue streams for Skilled Nursing Facilities while also improving patient satisfaction, and help SNFs avoid significant financial penalties assessed by Medicare and Medicaid for preventable readmissions. The average revenue for Reliq for these clients is $50 USD per patient per month.”
The Company also announced that it is expanding its Care Management Team in response to rapidly growing demand for its Care Management Services. “During the pandemic we have had all of our Care Managers working from their own homes, and that has been very successful,” said Dr. Crossley. “This is very good news for Reliq in terms of scaling up our Care Management Services as it means that we can hire Care Managers in any US State, and will not be limited by a finite pool of qualified personnel in a single area. We’re excited to see the increasing demand for Care Management, our premium product which generates an average revenue of $100 USD per patient per month.”
