On June 10, 2020 Predictmedix (PMED.C) announced the acquisition of MobileWellbeing, a Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) platform that will integrate with Predictmedix’ A.I-driven rapid screening systems.
PMED’s business objective: deploy artificial intelligence (AI) to disrupt impairment testing and healthcare.
Remote Patient Monitoring is a method of healthcare delivery that uses cell phones and other gadgets to gather patient data outside of traditional healthcare settings.
MobileWellbeing’s biz model is part of the Telehealth medical revolution.
These changes have been a long time coming.
According to a 1997 U.S. National Library of Medicine report, “sources of electronic patient information reside on many isolated islands that are difficult to bridge.”
“As an intern at Boston City Hospital in 1965, I spent enormous amounts of time chasing and managing patient information,” recalled one veteran physician, “At the time, computers offered major assistance to financial bookkeepers. It seemed a small stretch to imagine they could do the same for clinical chart management.”
