News in Summary

  • Contract with UWaterloo to span years and impact hundreds of patients
  • 1 in 6 people are impacted by neurological disorders

WATERLOO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2021 / Cloud DX (TSXV:CDX)(OTCQB:CDXFF) , Researchers from the University of Waterloo's Faculty of Health have partnered with Cloud DX, whose Connected Health TM Virtual Care Platform will augment care of those suffering with neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, stroke, dementia, and more. The team at University of Waterloo will integrate Connected Health TM into their research program to collect vital health data insights supplementary to clinic visits. Connected Health TM enables care teams to access data gathered from home and create personalized treatments tailored specifically around each patient's needs. The research will start in early 2022. Similar contracts involving the Connected Health TM Virtual Care Platform announced so far in 2021 include:

  • reimbursed RPM contract with Maxwell Telecare;
  • direct to patient e-commerce agreement with Dagamma;
  • partnership with Prizm Media; bringing Cloud DX access to more than 1 million patients in North America. 1

Dr. Bill McIlroy of University of Waterloo said, "With the help of Cloud DX's Connected Health TM platform, we'll be able to deliver unprecedented personalized care for each neurological patient. That means the potential for better care that can lead to superior health outcomes and improved quality of life. Having access to this data collected at home provides unique opportunities to transform health monitoring and care. The Cloud DX platform's advancements, along with advances in wearable technologies, will afford our clinicians the opportunity to better adjust and personalize their treatment approach based on individual patients' experiences and measurable numbers acquired at home. It's like the difference between a one-size-fits-all approach versus a custom-tailored wardrobe. Since each patient is unique, the custom-tailored approach creates a better fit and the potential for a vastly superior deliverable."

"While personalized care isn't new, helping neurological patients through the integration of at-home and in-clinic data collection is a new path forward for Virtual Care as a Platform," says Robert Kaul, Founder and CEO of Cloud DX. "Our Connected Health TM Virtual Care platform and extensive expertise with chronic illnesses like these help our partners and clients give patients the personalized care they need. We also put people in control of their health journey and bring them closer to their care team. Think about a dementia patient who is prescribed a new medication and develops irregular blood pressure. If they have Connected Health TM , their care team is notified of the changed vital sign and can quickly take action; a quick video chat and a fax to the pharmacy and the patient has a new prescription to be monitored on. Our Connected Health TM Virtual Care Platform makes it that simple for patients to get improved care and better health outcomes."

Cloud DX's upcoming investor meeting is set for noon on December 8, 2021. You can register here. Leadership will discuss Virtual Care as a Platform and associated revenue streams.
