VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT) or (OTCQB:RQHTF) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a technology company focused on creating innovative mobile health (mHealth) and telemedicine solutions for Community-Based Healthcare, is pleased to announce that it has begun onboarding diabetes patients for its Remote Patient Care pilot with Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Wen Health Centre in Sioux Lookout, ON.  The pilot project is funded by Ontario’s Health Technologies Fund (HTF). 

“We are very pleased to partner with Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Wen Health Centre (SLMHC) to address the healthcare challenge of poor access to care for diabetes patients living in remote and rural communities.  With the use of our low-touch, high-tech iUGO Care solution, ‘virtual care’ can be provided to diabetes patients in their own communities throughout Northwestern Ontario,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “Our platform supports remote patient monitoring and secure virtual communications, allowing clinicians to identify patients whose condition is becoming unstable and intervene early, before a serious complication develops. Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Wen Health Centre provides healthcare to patients across an area of Northwestern Ontario that is the size of France.  Their commitment to delivering high quality care to patients in even the most remote communities in this area is inspiring, and we are honoured to be part of this important initiative.”

Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Wen Health Centre (www.slmhc.on.ca) in Sioux Lookout, Ontario provides health services to all residents in a large area of Northwestern Ontario that includes four municipalities and 28 First Nations communities, including the Nishnawbe-Aski communities north of Sioux Lookout, the Treaty #3 community of Lac Seul First Nation, Hudson, Pickle Lake and Savant Lake.

This pilot project is one of 15 that received funding in the first round of Ontario’s $20-million Health Technology Fund.  The fund is administered by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) on behalf of the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist (OCHIS), and is a part of the OCHIS mandate to strengthen Ontario’s health innovation ecosystem.  For more information please visit http://www.oce-ontario.org/programs/commercialization-programs/health-technologies-fund.
