PRESS RELEASE - HOSPITALAR / Sao Paulo, Brazil - Friday May 25th, 2018
BR HOMMED EXTENDS ITS PARTNERSHIP WITH TACTIO ADDING CLOSE TO ONE MILLION CANADIAN DOLLARS INVESTMENT TO SUPPORT THE GROWTH OF ITS REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING PROGRAMS IN BRAZIL OVER THE NEXT 5 YEARS.
BR HomMed started early investing in the Brazilian remote patient monitoring (RPM) market along with Tactio Health Group supporting the specific technology requirements for the market. Now with a solid RPM offering, compelling value proposition that includes population health, screening, patient digital onboarding and remote monitoring programs, BR HomMed is ready to enhance its offering by further investing to support the next five years of growth. Tactio brings much more to BR HomMed than its genuine technological expertise and the TactioRPM platform, it also shares business savvy in connected health programs, developed in other markets and profound mHealth experience with millions of health app downloads and multiple digital health patient programs.
“Chronic diseases are as big of a problem in Brazil as they are in the US and Europe. It impacts 40% of the population, more than 57 million people in total, and accounts for 72% of mortalities. With the population aging, the strain of these conditions on our economy is expected to rise sharply. Our partnership with Tactio enables patients and service providers to benefit from a world class remote patient monitoring solution” said Giuliano Sant Anna, BR HomMed CEO.
BR HomMed’s Patient Remote Monitoring solutions enable stakeholders to promote customer self-care through the use of a mobile application that collects health data. This data gives decision makers a holistic understanding of their people’s health and supports decisions based on Big Data. In addition, BR HomMed has a multidisciplinary team to remotely manage in real-time elderly, pregnant, and chronically ill patients using medical devices connected to IoT.
"BR HomMed has done much more than its homework in the Brazilian RPM market... they’ve created the market! After piloting various digital health and RPM service models, BR HomMed has now a clear vision on the market requirements, on where to invest, how to service and how to bring value into the Brazilian healthcare market which is the kind of long-term focused, committed type of partner that we look for in the markets we support. And having ourselves several key Brazilians professionals in the Tactio Team has always helped in fostering the collaborative proximity despite the geographical distance. We share similar values and we’re both marathon type runners when it comes to engaging with the clients we service", said Michel Nadeau, CEO of Tactio Health Group.
