HAMILTON, Ontario, March 16, 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 five new contracts with three primary care practices and two home health agencies in the US. The Company is also pleased to be expanding its mental health care capabilities beyond Behavioural Health Integration (BHI) to also support Collaborative Care Management (CoCM).
“We are pleased to be adding these five new clients,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “These providers will add over 2,000 new patients to our iUGO Care platform. The contracts include a one-time payment of $400,000 for hardware (medical monitoring devices) and are expected to generate an average recurring revenue of over $70 per patient per month. Onboarding is expected to begin next month. We are also excited to be expanding our support for mental health care by adding Collaborative Care Management (CoCM) to our platform. Our CoCM module allows primary care physicians and specialists to proactively care for patients with behavioural, mental health or psychiatric conditions including addiction. CoCM is an additional level of care that can be offered to patients who aren’t responding to Behavioural Health Integration services alone. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reimburse clinicians an average of $230 per patient per month for CoCM services, in addition to any payments the provider is receiving from CMS for other virtual care services provided to the patient including Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM). CoCM therefore provides a new revenue stream for clinicians while improving care for patients with the most challenging mental health and addiction issues.”
