Beyond the traditional confines of in-clinic visits, Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) provides clinicians and practitioners the ability to maintain an on-going continuous connection with their patient community extending oversight of patient care and monitoring directly into the patient’s home. Through our exclusive licensing agreement with Cloud DX, our RPM platform empowers a patient with real-time vital sign information while maintaining a direct technology link from patient to clinician or medical practitioner. The transfer of vital information from home to clinic or patient to clinician allows for the delivery of high quality, non-redundant diagnostic based proactive healthcare. We intend to expand our offering of RPM technology to not only our Canadian clinics and affiliate clinics but to clinics and medically licensed providers throughout Canada and the United States.
The inclusion of RPM temperature measuring devices to compliment blood pressure and weight measuring instruments (Bluetooth) has completed the stable of peripherals necessary for high level critical assessment. The revision to patient intake at the clinic level to include mandatory measurement of vitals assures appropriate tracking and baseline metrics necessary to evaluate in a remote environment. The implementation of in-clinic patient metrics equivalent to those derived via a remote application in the home environment is the first step in engaging patient retention to remote review.
Post-pandemic, upon the re-opening of our corporate clinics, the Company is actively working to educate our patients regarding the benefits of RPM use. In Canada, third party insurance coverage for RPM related devices is now being reviewed for implementation nationwide. Currently, as documented and requested by the clinician, insurance coverage is being approved on a case by case basis.
