Reliq’s iUGO Care technology platform is a comprehensive SAAS solution that allows complex chronic disease patients to receive high quality care in the home or other community-based setting, improving health outcomes, enhancing quality of life for patients & families and reducing the cost of care delivery.
Reliq Health’s technology addresses the unmet needs of the global Community Care market. Community Care is an umbrella term that refers to the healthcare patients receive outside the hospital setting. As the population ages, global healthcare costs are rising significantly and the existing healthcare business model is rapidly becoming unsustainable. Demand by governments, HMOs and patients for more efficient healthcare is driving healthcare organizations to reduce costs by moving care out of the acute, inpatient setting into the Community. The key challenges in the Community Care setting include:
- Poor access to specialized care in remote, rural and inner city areas
- Shrinking percentage of healthcare personnel to care for more chronically ill patients
- Chronic diseases account for ~80% of all healthcare spending in the developed nations worldwide, but chronic conditions are typically poorly managed by patients at home leading to complications and the need for hospitalizations, ER visits and other costly and disruptive interventions
Reliq is targeting three large and growing segments within the Community Care market.
