BEWELLCONNECT CORP ANNOUNCES DURING ATA THE STRENGTHENING OF ITS PARTNERSHIP WITH MEDPOD
VISIOMED GROUP (FR0011067669 – ALVMG), a company specializing in innovative medical electronics, announced during the American Telemedicine Association Telehealth 2.0 in Orlando the strengthening of the relationship between BewellConnect Corp and Medpod to offer a strategic partnership agreement for the next generation of remote patient monitoring and telemedicine services and devices.
In addition, Henry Schein Medical, a division of Henry Schein, Inc., (Nasdaq: HSIC), the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, will be Medpod’s exclusive distributor.
After their initial contract signed in June 2016 which encompassed the sale of BewellConnect devices to Medpod, the companies have decided to strengthen their relationship by the signature of a “Strategic Partnership Agreement”.
Through this strategic partnership agreement, Medpod will offer its ground-breaking platform using best in class partners, which includes BewellConnect. BewellConnect IoT technology will be an integral part of Medpod’s remote patient monitoring offer . The integration of the BewellConnect technology comes in addition to the hardware contract that will allow physicians, insurance companies, health plans and other Medpod customers to allow for an advanced level of care for patients suffering from multiple chronic diseases.
Jack Tawil, President and CEO of Medpod says:
“We’re pleased to be working with BewellConnect in this greater capacity. The new agreement signifies Medpod’s dedication to providing top notch patient services with a best in class IoT platform.”
Olivier Hua, CEO of BewellConnect Corp added:
“We have been working together since June and have seen the great value this relationship is bringing to the medical community. We are confident in the continued success and proud to become an even closer partner of Medpod through the integration of our technology in their Remote Patient Monitoring platform. This will allow BewellConnect to expand its network, not only for its devices but essentially for its recurring services revenues.”
