TORONTO, July 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Health Care Services International, operating as Novus Health (“Novus”), is pleased to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding with HealthCare365 (“HC365”), forming a strategic partnership to enhance their existing digital and human health navigation services.
Collaboration on the development of innovative new services has already begun and Novus intends to roll out a robust Chronic Disease Management offering to existing and new clients in the coming weeks.
According to research conducted by the World Health Organization, asthma, a prevalent chronic condition, affects more than 339 million people worldwide and remains the most common chronic disease among children. Although incurable, effective management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes, alongside medical support, can help those affected better understand their condition and adjust habits to improve their quality of life. Empowering individuals with educational, engaging and supportive tools and resources can help them manage their disease and prevent future complications.
“We have been actively evolving our products to enhance what we already do well and meet the needs of the market, especially in light of current global events,” explains Robin Ingle, CEO of Novus Health. “Our clients look to us as experts in the space to continue to innovate and bring more value to their users leveraging our powerful, easily integrated digital platforms and high touch human services.”
“This partnership was a natural fit,” comments Skip Schwartz, CEO of HealthCare365. “Novus Health’s experience with digital health platforms will inform our back end, while we focus on supporting Novus’ clients doing what we do really well: high touch health navigation services for complex cases.”
The partners see this first phase as just the beginning of a long line of unique offerings which will continue to evolve as the “new normal” emerges. Novus and HC365 are poised to provide critical services all organizations can benefit from with their health, risk and travel safety-management platforms, tools and services.
This is the second strategic partnership for Novus in 2020 after the acquisition of global risk monitoring technology company, Near Threat Analytics Corp.
