Connected Health by Cloud DX includes our award-winning, patient facing mobile application, easy-to-use Health Canada licensed medical devices, smart software that gathers data from and connects to each patient at home, and comprehensive clinical workflows that improve both the efficiency of care delivery and healthcare outcomes for patients.
Clients across North America now deploy Cloud DX Connected Health for chronic disease management, post-surgical monitoring, pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation, diabetes, and palliative care use cases.
dRPM using Cloud DX Connected Health has been shown, most recently in the peer-reviewed PCV-RAM-1 study, to dramatically reduce post-surgical medication errors, severe pain scores, ER visits and hospital readmissions.
According to official stats from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (www.cihi.ca) Patient Cost Estimator, exacerbation of chronic conditions resulted in over 11,000 hospital admissions in Alberta in 2021 averaging approx. 7 days each.
Recent research, including a series of studies at Hamilton Health Sciences in Hamilton ON, has shown that dRPM using Cloud DX Connected Health can reduce the average length of a hospital admission by 1.9 days on average.
Cloud DX is SOC 2 compliant and meets or exceeds Alberta Health Information Act (HIA) privacy and security regulations protecting personal health information.
This is the 21st contract or extension announced so far in 2023 by Cloud DX vs 28 contracts / extensions announced in all of 2022.
Robert Kaul, Founder and CEO of Cloud DX stated. 'Cloud DX is very pleased to have been awarded this competitive dRPM contract with Alberta Health Services. Combined with the recently announced contract awards from Alberta Central Zone Primary Care Network and the Mohawk Medbuy shared services organization, Connected Health by Cloud DX is now, more than ever, the preferred dRPM solution for hospitals, physicians, community paramedics and provincial health authorities across Canada. With this announcement, our mission to make healthcare better for everyone in Canada takes another giant stride forward.'
