This announcement is the latest in a series of contracts announced by Cloud DX in recent weeks, including a contract extension with a large Canadian provincial health authority and a partnership agreement with US-based Maxwell Telecare.
Newfoundland-based Medicuro Virtual Health Clinic has chosen to supply the Cloud DX Connected Health platform to patients under its care who are suffering with chronic illnesses such as congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Since 2019, Medicuro has served thousands of patients across Newfoundland and Labrador as one of the first online clinics operating in the province. Founder and President Dr. Todd Young along with Medicuro's team of physicians, nurses and counselors are leveraging telehealth, virtual care and now remote patient monitoring as part of a strategy to lead healthcare innovation in Newfoundland.
