The healthcare industry is poised for many new [remote patient monitoring] programs to start in 2019.
WAYCROSS, Ga. (PRWEB) November 26, 2018
Global Partnership for Telehealth has established a strategic partnership with Canada-based remote patient monitoring software and hardware provider, Cloud DX.
“GPT is aware of the increasing importance of remote patient monitoring and of its growing role in the telehealth landscape,” said Sherrie Williams, COO of Global Partnership for Telehealth. “Since remote patient monitoring is a service that GPT doesn’t provide, we’re looking to Cloud DX to fill that gap."
Both Williams and Larry Steinberg, EVP and Co-founder of Cloud DX, said that the partnership will open new avenues for both companies.
“Remote Patient Monitoring is on the minds today of healthcare leadership across the spectrum of payers and providers to help reduce overall costs while also creating better patient outcomes, improve patient satisfaction, and improve patient compliance,” Steinberg said. “With the new reimbursement codes for RPM and risk share models being considered, the healthcare industry is poised for many new programs to start in 2019. Our partnership with GPT will help expand our reach and visibility in the regions they operate while also filling a need that their customers are asking for.”
