Growth in the US solidifies Cloud DX as platform of choice for Chronic Care Management programs
News in Summary
- US contracts grow with active patient onboarding in 9 states
- Cloud DX continues to surpass previous growth, with 142% YoY contract growth
- Clinics growing Chronic Care Management programs continue to choose Cloud DX's platform
KITCHENER, ON / ACCESSWIRE / August 2, 2022 / Cloud DX (TSXV:CDX) (OTCQB:CDXFF), Cloud DX, a leading Digital Health platform, announces a new contract with a primary care clinic in Michigan, USA. To improve outcomes for patients with chronic conditions, the clinic will use Cloud DX's Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solution, complete with its Connected Health™ kit. With active patient onboarding in nine states, this Michigan contract further deepens Cloud DX's US roots. Each kit includes proprietary and third-party vital sign devices that directly transmit biophysical data and vital sign readings to a patient's application and the clinical portal, enabling clinic staff and physicians to monitor several patients remotely and intervene in case of irregularities.
"When it comes to managing Chronic Conditions, daily remote monitoring should be standard of care. Our healthcare systems are beyond burdened. Yet thankfully, under this pressure, proactive and preventative approaches are being evaluated as less of a pandemic patch and finally, more as a standard of care, which is a positive change in tide," says Robert Kaul, CEO and Co-Founder of Cloud DX. He continues, "For patients with chronic conditions, such as CHF or COPD, controlling exacerbations is key to improving outcomes of lifestyles. For both patients and healthcare systems, intervening early during such an event reduces ER visits and hospital admissions. Using Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) supports such interventions and in turn lowers hospital urgent care or visits by 67%1. This figure alone can alleviate a lot of system stress and improve the lives of the chronically ill."
COPD Patient, John, says "Before [RPM], I would visit the hospital two to three times a year to get myself checked out. [Now] I can keep track of my symptoms and know what to do."
Cloud DX US clinical customers are implementing RPM solutions in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Oregan, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. In Canada, the company continues to support provincial and territorial health authorities, while expanding on its partnership with Medtronic Canada to develop optimized surgical pathways. Cloud DX also supports the Population Health Research Institute's newly launched Digital Health research stream.
