TeleVU partners with TELUS to expand virtual care
December 22, 2021
TORONTO – TeleVU, a leading Canadian tech company focused on application of smart glasses in healthcare settings utilizing the power of AR and AI, announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with TELUS. TELUS is a leading telecommunication company in Canada, as well as Canada’s leader in digital health technology that is improving access to health and wellness services and revolutionizing the flow of health information across the continuum of care.
Built on 30 years of combined experience and expertise in Medical Technology, Computer Science and AI, TeleVU provides a new level of virtual care that enables frontline healthcare professionals deliver hands-on care to their patient while receiving real-time expert advice from remote clinical experts via Smart Glasses anywhere in Canada or worldwide. In addition, TeleVU’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) platform (BioVU) redefines collecting and sharing vital sign data with healthcare professionals and caregivers on a secure cloud platform.
In Canada, only 13% of family physicians and 3% of specialists practice in rural areas. This means patients must travel away from home to receive specialist care and, in some cases, even for primary care. TeleVu’s connected ecosystem improves access and equity in care for patients by eliminating geographical barriers to allow frontline clinicians to deliver better care by being connected to remote specialists in real-time. It also allows specialists to care for more patients without the need to travel.
Ultimately, the burden on health system resources is reduced while improving quality and equity in care for patients and delivering care closer to home.
“We are delighted to pair our technology with TELUS’s vast experience and expertise in the field of virtual care and 5G to improve the way healthcare is delivered to Canadians, and bring care closer to home,” said Ryan De’Larami, TeleVU’s founder & CEO. “We are excited about the possibilities that TELUS’s 5G technology and Edge computing offers in peer-to-peer real-time interactions and AI guided decision making to deliver timely care to patients across the nation.”
