WATERLOO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 21, 2021 / Cloud DX (TSXV:CDX) (OTCQB:CDXFF), Cloud DX announces a three year agreement with an independent Ontario clinic to supply Connected Health™ hardware, telehealth connectivity, and remote monitoring services for at-home pulmonary rehabilitation. The need for safe at-home pulmonary rehabilitation for those with severe COPD was already acute before 2020, and now the province is faced with tens of thousands of patients with persistent shortness of breath and lung damage due to COVID-19. The company's Connected Health™ will allow patients to participate in rehabilitation sessions safely at home, including group classes through its secure app. The client plans to broadcast a minimum of four rehabilitation sessions daily. Critical vital signs, such as pulse oxygen readings, will be gathered simultaneously and patient success will be measured accurately and automatically tracked within the Connected Health™ platform. The program launches in January 2022 with Connected Health™ kits deployed to patients on a rotating eight-to-twelve-week basis. Cloud DX charges an upfront fee for each Connected Health™ kit and ongoing monthly fees for connectivity and support services.

Robert Kaul, CEO and Founder of Cloud DX states: "Cloud DX has delivered state-of-the-art virtual care for patients with chronic respiratory disease since 2019, when we began the virtual outpatient COPD program at Markham Stouffville Hospital. Our extensive experience enables us to deliver effective, efficient, and patient-focused virtual pulmonary rehabilitation programs. The need has never been greater, and Cloud DX is proud to be able to deliver this important new care modality during the ongoing public health emergency."

This contract follows recent announcements, of 2,400 patient deployment by Hamilton Health Sciences and landmark partnership with Medtronic Canada, as another step towards the company's break-even goal of ~10,000 patients enrolled in Connected Health.
