London/San Francisco, 16th March 2016 – Kainos Group plc (LSE: KNOS), a leading UK-based provider of IT, consulting and software solutions, and InTouch Health (‘InTouch’), a leading provider of telehealth solutions, today announce a partnership to develop a suite of innovative telehealth offerings with the potential to reshape care delivery in healthcare systems around the world.
The InTouch Telehealth Network connects more than 1,500 hospital locations globally and over 4,500 physician specialists enabling urgent teleheath care. Over the InTouch platform, a stroke consultation is enabled every five minutes, touching the lives of nearly 100,000 stroke patients every year. InTouch Health plans to transform healthcare delivery by using Kainos Evolve’s Integrated Care Platform to power its next generation telehealth patient management solution to improve patient outcomes at lower costs.
Through Kainos Evolve’s relationship as an Apple mobility partner, InTouch customers will benefit from best-in-class mobile access to clinical information at the point of care. Using the Evolve platform will allow InTouch to deliver customisable patient-centric applications that can be integrated with hospital Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and be easily modified or extended to accommodate the requirements of individual healthcare organisations using eForms and workflow.
Under the terms of the five-year partnership agreement, Evolve will be deployed as a SaaS platform to support telehealth applications in some of the largest Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) in the United States.
Brendan Mooney, CEO of Kainos, commented: “We are delighted to announce this strategic partnership with InTouch Health. We believe that telemedicine will transform the way in which healthcare is delivered, and this partnership between InTouch Health and Kainos Evolve provides the right capability to support this transformation.”
Dr. Yulun Wang, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at InTouch Health, added: “We are excited about working with Kainos Evolve. The flexibility and power of the Evolve platform, combined with the breadth of the InTouch customer base and solution offerings, has the potential to make a significant impact on the care of patients across the United States and beyond.”
