KITCHENER, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 26, 2022 / Cloud DX (TSXV:CDX) (OTCQB:CDXFF), a leading remote monitoring company, announces a new partnership with CBI Health, a leading community home care provider, to offer a comprehensive home care service to Canadians. This innovative Cloud DX - CBI Health partnership enables patients to go home sooner and more safely after surgery and other complex health presentations, helping alleviate occupancy pressure on Canadian hospitals.
The partners' first contract together is the Critical Illness (CI) benefit with insurer Equitable Life of Canada. As previously announced, the leading Canadian financial services company now offers Cloud DX Remote Monitoring free of charge to all approved CI claimants. This Cloud DX offering now expands to include 24/7 monitoring with CBI's National Client Service Center, offering Equitable clients greater access to care and improved convenience.
Cloud DX digital health platform delivers remote monitoring and virtual care solutions that bring patients and care teams closer together. By connecting with CBI Health's high quality home care service network across Canada, this partnership empowers hospitals, insurers, or other stakeholders to access virtual command centers of healthcare professionals to augment remote or virtual care solutions without increasing overhead or workload. Together, Cloud DX and CBI Health streamline virtual care implementation to monitor post-operative care or complex chronic illness patients, meaning patients can go home earlier and care teams can discharge them with confidence in their at-home care.
"We're excited to announce a new partnership between Cloud DX and CBI Health to expand access to quality care at home. Combining our expertise in remote and virtual care with CBI Health's professional and personal healthcare services, hospitals can discharge patients earlier with confidence," says Robert Kaul, CEO and Founder of Cloud DX. "This is great news for patients who need additional support at home, but it's also great news for healthcare systems - the partnership will create system efficiencies that improve patient outcomes, reduce system costs, and can reduce length of stay at hospital. All of which, in turn, can make a difference to both care access and care quality."
Feisal Keshavjee, SVP at CBI Health, states: "Together CBI Health and Cloud DX are a powerful combination of innovation, technology and service excellence that enables patients and clients to manage and measure their health at home. CBI Health is committed to providing the highest quality of care possible and the highest standards of service.

By partnering with Cloud DX, we can provide these services at home where it's most comfortable for our clients."
Together, this partnership will provide high-quality and high-reliability services for hospitals, health authorities, insurers, or other stakeholders to support their patients.
