TORONTO, Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSX: VHI) is pleased to announce a significant licensing transaction of subsidiary Intouch with Health’s (“Intouch”) patient flow platform to Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust (the “Trust” or “Royal Berkshire”). In November 2021, Royal Berkshire secured central funding to support the Trust’s digital transformation and digitization of health and care systems. The transaction is principally focused on Royal Berkshire Hospital and allows the licensed solutions to be used at all 6 Trust sites. This deal comes as a result of the Trust having identified a need for a platform which would enable a longer term objective to digitally transform outpatient coordination.
VitalHub successfully demonstrated proficiency in the technologies required to support the need for a multi-faceted patient journey solution. The Trust purchased the following Intouch modules from VitalHub; Flow Manager, Self-Check-In, Mobile Appointment Manager, Patient Calling, Wait Time Manager, Activity Manager, and HL7 Integration with Cerner, thus meeting the Trust’s criteria to work with a technology provider capable of offering digital solutions across the whole of outpatients and not just a point solution.
This partnership is a result of collaboration between VitalHub subsidiary organizations. Royal Berkshire uses VitalHub’s SHREWD whole-system visibility platform to support their regional reporting as a member of the NHS England and NHS Improvement South East region, one of seven regional teams in England that ensure that the population of the South East have access to high quality health and care services.
“This is evidence that our acquisition strategy which focuses on synergistic solutions is working to improve health outcomes, system-wide, for our customers. The Royal Berkshire’s investment in improving the outpatient experience and the success of our business in 2021 underlines that there is a significant opportunity to grow our leadership position in the outpatient flow optimization category. The Intouch platform continues to be the leading patient flow system in the UK market,” said Dan Matlow, CEO of VitalHub Corporation.
