Toronto-based Ideal Life Inc. launched a telehealth network in China with the Chinese drug manufacturer NovaTech Biological Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.
More than 100,000 patients are slated to participate in the program that will employ Ideal Life’s interactive kiosks and remote health monitoring devices, according to the company.
The companies plan to install the first kiosks, which "allow unlimited users to connect with providers at reduced connectivity charges," in community hospitals in the Shandong province, where NovaTech Biological Pharmaceutical is based, according to Ideal Life. The companies said that the network will be the world’s largest telehealth program.
"[I]ndividuals in villages, in community centers, and in large cities can have their health information recorded and instantly transmitted to their health care provider in a way that fits their lifestyle," with the system," said Ideal Life president Jason Goldberg in prepared remarks.
