During the quarter we further expanded our software and device ecosystems, through the acquisitions of MatrixCare and Propeller Health, to provide digital health solutions to millions more people worldwide. We are empowering people to live healthier and happier lives where they live, and we are doing this by providing innovative software, services, and solutions to improve outcomes, create efficiencies, and reduce overall healthcare system costs,” CEO Mick Farrell said in a press release.
