VitalHub Announces Licensing Deal with Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust

·5 min read

TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSX: VHI) is pleased to announce a licensing transaction of subsidiary Intouch with Health’s (“Intouch”) digital health platform to Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust (the “Trust” or “Royal Berkshire”).

The transaction is principally focused on Royal Berkshire Hospital and allows the PAS (Patient Administration System) integrated solution to be used at all 6 Trust sites. Intouch’s Room & Resource Manager product enables health system staff to easily search the system for available rooms and suitable facilities and resources, comprising an essential component of the digital health infrastructure pertaining to scheduling, which supports the drive to reduce lengthy waiting lists.

This deal comes as a result of the Trust having identified a need for a platform which would enable a longer term plan to digitally transform outpatients. Room booking throughout the Trust is currently performed with an in-house developed solution which does not integrate with the hospital’s PAS. “The Trust reviewed offerings from multiple suppliers. The Intouch solution was selected because it met the Trust’s key requirement which is to engage in a partnership with a company that can provide a broad solution, set to help with their digital ambitions, as opposed to engaging multiple “point” suppliers,” commented, Mike Sanders, CEO VitalHub UK Corp.

The Intouch Room & Resource Manager solution provides hospital staff with instant access to real-time data including room availability, the status of a meeting room and resource needs, enabling resources to be allocated and booked in an efficient manner. It also captures resource needs and allows relevant resources to be allocated and booked in a timely manner, maximizing the use of assets. These tools provide access to critical operational visibility information pertaining to scheduling and resource availability, necessary for health systems to optimize the efficiency of patient flow and the patient journey.

“Our continued growth and market penetration is evidence of the ongoing demand for digital transformation and operational efficiency solutions,” said Dan Matlow, CEO of VitalHub Corp. “We are delighted to enable the safe and effective management of the patient journey through each stage of the health system as we continue to meet this growing market demand through our best in class product suite.”
