TORONTO, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSXV: VHI) is pleased to announce a multi-year licensing agreement of wholly-owned subsidiary Transforming Systems’ proprietary SHREWD Resilience and COVID-19 modules with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Systems (the “ICS” or Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent”).
The ICS has agreed to a multi-year licensing agreement, which will span over three-years, and be one of Transforming Systems’ largest sales to date. The finalization of this agreement is a testament to the Company’s increasingly large footprint in the UK healthcare system.
Transforming Systems will be deploying the SHREWD Resilience and SHREWD COVID-19 modules across the ICS network. The ICS’s mandate is to elevate their healthcare delivery by closely managing their resources, performance, and delivery. By providing a real-time picture of the entire health system in one place and reducing the administrative burden of current manual processes across the health network, SHREWD systems will play an instrumental role in supporting their endeavours. SHREWD’s real-time decision-making tools will empower the ICS in their pursuit of improving the efficiency of care delivery by enabling operational visibility across the system.
“We are delighted to expand our offerings across the Stafford and Stoke-on-Trent region, serving more than 1.1 million patients,” said Dan Matlow, CEO of VitalHub Corp. “As one of our single largest licensing transactions to-date, this sale serves as a further demonstration of the market pull for our products and services, and the considerable need we continue to address across the NHS. Our SHREWD platform continues to address emergent needs across the healthcare system, specifically several of the challenges resulting from the pandemic. By providing healthcare organizations and operators with real-time visibility, across entire regions, we can help improve load capacity and balancing, ensuring overrun systems can continue to operate and serve patients in need.”
The ICS spans six clinical commission groups (“CCGs”) in the Stafford and Stoke-On-Trent area. In addition to other key urgent care providers, the CCGs that are part of the ICS include the University Hospitals of North Midlands, the North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, and the West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust. The ICS network employs over ten thousand individuals, serving a patient population more than 1.1 million people.
