Reliq Health Technologies Announces New Funding to Expand Diabetes Pilot in Sioux Lookout, ON, and Meeting with the Office of the Premier of Ontario

“We are pleased to announce that the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch of Indigenous Services Canada has provided new funding to SLMHC to expand the current pilot of our iUGO Care remote patient monitoring platform with diabetes patients residing on reserve in Northwestern Ontario,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “The pilot was funded by Ontario’s Health Technologies Fund (HTF), and It’s exciting to see that the Federal government also recognizes the value of providing high quality care to these patients in the home on reserve.   There are over 100,000 First Nations people living on reserves in Ontario and over 600,000 people living on reserves across Canada.  Many of these reserves are in remote settings that can only be accessed by airplane, boat or ice road.  This pilot is meant to validate using a care delivery model to improve health outcomes in patients with access to health care in their own communities. ”

“Dr. Crossley and I were very happy to be invited to meet with the Office of the Premier of Ontario last week to provide an update on this important and evolving pilot project,” stated Dr. Richard Sztramko, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Reliq Health.  “Reliq is pleased to be working with the Government of Ontario, Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Wen Health Centre (SLMHC) and the Government of Canada to deal with the health care challenge of poor access to care for chronic illness patients living in remote and rural communities.  Studies have shown that glycemic control significantly improves and reduce hospitalizations in diabetic patients.   The iUGO Care model can help patients avoid the effects of poor glycemic control such as foot ulcers and amputations, which cost the Ontario health care system over $400 million.  The effects of a care solution like iUGO Care on patients&rsquo. ”
