TORONTO – VitalHub Corp., a Canadian health and human services technology company, has signed a partnership agreement with UK-based healthcare technology specialist, Intouch with Health. The agreement will see Intouch patient flow virtual management solutions and software combined with VitalHub’s solutions and services to enable patient flow to be managed from a patient’s hospital activities through to ongoing support and care in the community.
Intouch with Health’s proven patient flow and clinic management solutions enable healthcare organizations to effectively and efficiently manage every stage of the patient journey; providing accurate and timely information for staff and patients along the pathway. Additionally, Intouch with Health offers virtual clinic management capabilities, and remote pre-operative assessment solutions (in support of elective procedures) creating important extensibility and accessibility of their solutions, especially given the current COVID-19 landscape.
Intouch’s comprehensive suite of modules support every aspect of the patient experience, from patient arrival (including mobile phone check-in) to infection control procedures, through to accurate payment data collection and digital appointment outcome recording. This enables NHS trusts (UK) and hospital and private healthcare organizations (world-wide) to mitigate operational and patient risk, increase efficiency, and reduce costs.
VitalHub’s solutions are well established within Canada and the partnership will contribute greatly to the Company’s goal of building a comprehensive suite of solutions.
Dan Matlow (pictured), CEO and president of VitalHub Corp. commented: “I am delighted to announce this partnership. The combination of innovative solutions and proven delivery capabilities presents the opportunity for our customers to make a positive change in the way they deliver healthcare, resulting in increased patient satisfaction as well as real cost savings.”
Matlow added: “Intouch has created unique solutions in respect to integrated Patient Focused Care that allows patients to remotely register and prepare for hospital procedures prior to admission and prepare for elective surgery; all within a single, integrated platform. COVID-19 has created a large need for these types of solutions and we are excited to be introducing them into the Canadian marketplace.”

With healthcare organizations world-wide facing unprecedented pressure from COVID-19 and the ongoing need to deliver healthcare services efficiently and effectively, our partnership is more pertinent than ever.
