TORONTO, ON / July 14, 2021 / AI/ML Innovations Inc. (CSE:AIML)(OTCQB:AIMLF) (“AIML” or the “Company”), a company committed to acquiring and advancing Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning technologies that address urgent societal needs, is pleased to announce that its strategic partner, Tech2Health, a France-based global provider of proprietary digital mental health and wellness products, has entered into commercial contracts with three companies to provide digital mental health services to their employees and insured members. Based on the number of individuals covered and standard industry usage rates, Tech2Health estimates that these contracts may potentially generate an aggregate total of US$5 million of revenue over the 3-year life of the contracts. AIML has a binding Letter of Intent to acquire a 70% undivided interest in the North American rights to Tech2Health’s complete portfolio of products and brands, in addition to a 22.22% equity interest in Tech2Health’s global operations.
“Tech2Health’s Qookka-branded mental wellness products were officially launched only one month ago, and already the company has secured three substantial multi-year contracts,” said Tim Daniels, Chairman of AIML. “We are very pleased by the rapid pace of commercialization the Qookka product lines are experiencing, as employers and insurers continue to step up their responsibility to help provide mental health support, as evidenced by these contracts. This reaffirms our belief that the digital application of the treatment and support of mental health issues, which has gone largely unaddressed until recently, is now realizing rapid adoption and global growth. This bodes well for the future of Tech2Health and AIML.”
- Tech2Health recently signed a three-year contract a with leading French multinational manufacturer to provide mental wellness support to their 170,000 employees globally in five languages, through the use of Qookka Live.
- MAPA Assurance, the 110-year-old French insurance provider, has entered a three-year contract with Tech2Health to provide coverage for mental health consultations via Qookka Live to its 85,000 insured members.
- Elixir Santé, is a French web-based health insurance market with an emphasis on health coaching care and support for their members. The three-year contract with Tech2Health offers Elixir’s members mental health consultations via Qookka Live, to complete Elixir’s offering of a comprehensive set of healthcare products and services.
The actual revenue generated from these contracts will be a function of the number of employees and insured members of these organizations who choose to seek Qookka counselling benefits, multiplied by the agreed upon reimbursement rate, in addition to the agreed upon number of live coaching sessions delivered to each organization. The revenue estimate is based upon the historical adoption rates for employees and insured members of these organizations for similar mental health and wellness services.
