HAMILTON, Ontario, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 signed contracts with two US Nephrology practices to use Reliq’s proprietary iUGO Care platform to monitor Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients. “It is exciting to see the rapidly increasing demand for Reliq’s iUGO Care platform with specialists in the US,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “As the US begins to open up thanks to a successful COVID-19 vaccine rollout, we are increasing the number of patients we onboard to our platform every week and signing new contracts with clients in a number of new market segments, including the Nephrology space. Using iUGO Care, Nephrologists can monitor Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients at home to help prevent disease progression. Chronic Kidney Disease typically develops as a result of uncontrolled high blood pressure and/or diabetes. Ensuring medication compliance and managing blood pressure and blood sugar in CKD patients is critical to limiting further damage to the kidneys that could lead to End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), dependence on dialysis, the need for a kidney transplant and ultimately death. Reliq will receive an average revenue of $65 USD/patient/month under the terms of these new contracts.” Reliq HealthReliq Health Technologies is a rapidly growing global telemedicine that specializes in developing innovative Virtual Care solutions for the multi-billion dollar Healthcare market.
