MIRAMAR, Fla., May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTCQB:GNBT) (“Generex” or the “Company”), an innovative and integrated healthcare holding company with end-to-end solutions for patient centric care including the development of its innovative “Complete Vaccine™” to fight SARS-CoV-2, announced today that its subsidiary NuGenHealth has signed a contract with Westside Medicine & Cardiology, Inc. (WM&C) to provide connected care solutions for patient engagement and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) services. NuGenHealth, a joint venture between Generex subsidiary NuGenerex Health and Worldwide Digitech, LLC (WWDT) will provide the software, data framework, and back-end support for the NuGenHealth SaaS system to advance collaborative, connected care to improve patient health outcomes for patients under the care of WM&C.
The NuGenHealth system offers direct savings to physicians and healthcare organizations both in time and money, allowing the healthcare team to monitor patient progress outside the practice office, leading to timely interventions and early identification of disease progression that may prevent unnecessary hospitalizations. The SaaS system utilizes automated algorithms, real-time data, and quality metrics to involve patients in their own care, while keeping healthcare providers and family constantly informed.
RPM is the use of digital technologies to monitor and capture medical/health data from patients and electronically transmit the information to their providers for assessment, recommendations, and instructions. Providers use RPM to collect a wide range of patient data, including blood pressure, weight, heart rate, and blood sugar levels.
Under the terms of the agreement, NuGenHealth will provide the SaaS system, implementation, personnel training, and system oversight to optimize workflows for RPM and to collect, analyze, and report real-time patient data. NuGenHealth will also supply WM&C with Bluetooth connected blood pressure monitors, electronic scales, glucose monitors, and pulse oximeters for their eligible patient population. In collaboration with and assistance from the NuGenHealth implementation team, WM&C will implement the NuGenHealth SaaS suite on site, handle the initial onboarding of patients, train their patients on the use of the monitoring devices, and manage the day-to-day monitoring of their RPM patient population.
Joe Moscato, President & Chief Executive Officer of Generex said, “This expansion of NuGenHealth with our physician partners at Westside Medicine & Cardiology, Inc. in Ohio demonstrates the opportunity for rapid adoption of the NuGenHealth SaaS system nationwide. Remote patient monitoring is a service that was positioned for significant growth as the pandemic has accelerated the practice of remote patient monitoring to improve outcomes. We are excited to launch our NuGenHealth SaaS program, and we look forward to continued expansion of our RPM business with the announcement of additional contracts in the next several weeks.”
Sunjay Kumar, who is leading the sales efforts at NuGenHealth said, “Our NuGenHealth SaaS system provides a platform for physicians to offer new services for their patients to monitor and manage their health for better outcomes, while generating new revenue streams for the practice. Throughout my career, I have built a network of connections throughout the medical community, and they have been quite receptive to the NuGenHealth system. Their enthusiasm is illustrated by our roll-out in which we have contracted with three major physician practices in three regions of the country in the last week. We plan to continue our expansion to build NuGenHealth into a premier provider of RPM SaaS services.”
“We have been evaluating new technologies to help us with remote patient monitoring and engagement outside of the office setting”, said Dr. Umbreen Hussain of Westside Medicine & Cardiology, Inc. “The pandemic made clear the need for re-imagining our normal medical practices to expand our service offerings, so that we can manage our patients in the community using technology solutions. We have selected NuGenHealth because the software is easy to install and maintain, has a user-friendly interface, and provides efficiencies in patient management. We are excited to implement the system at Westside Medicine & Cardiology, Inc. and begin enrolling our patients.”
