Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO, stated: “ The iUGO Care platform supports patients with asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other breathing issues by providing remote monitoring with connected spirometers, inhalers and nebulizers. Remote monitoring of asthma and COPD patients allows healthcare providers to identify early changes in lung function that can be easily treated at home with antibiotics, steroid inhalers or nebulizer treatments. These early interventions help prevent complications like inflammation, bronchitis and pneumonia that can cause permanent lung damage and lead to lengthy, disruptive and costly ICU stays. Under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) program, physicians and respiratory therapists can provide RTM services, expanding Reliq’s addressable market .”
Although adult death rates from COPD have been dropping in recent years in the US, more than 20 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov), have COPD and it is the fourth leading cause of death in the US.
The company also reports that Hurricane Idalia has not significantly impacted its clients in Florida and will not disrupt onboarding or billing for Reliq’s clients in the state.
Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO, added: “ Onboarding, adherence and collections have continued to improve this quarter and the company’s profitability continues to increase. Sales for FY 2023 more than doubled year over year relative to FY 2022 and are expected to more than double again in FY 2024. We look forward to continued record growth through the remainder of calendar year 2023 and beyond .”
