Toronto, Ontario, CANADA


TORONTO, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSX: VHI) is pleased to announce a new customer contract with NHS Grampian, marking the Company’s entrance into the National Health Service Scotland market.

NHS Grampian is an NHS board which forms one of the fourteen regional health boards of NHS Scotland. Grampian is responsible for providing health and social care services to a population of over 500,000 people living in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.

The Baird Family Hospital brings together all maternity, neonatal, reproductive medicine, breast and gynaecology services. It will also house a patient hotel and dedicated teaching and research facilities. The Anchor Centre brings all haematology, oncology and radiotherapy day and outpatient services under one roof, along with a specialized aseptic pharmacy for the production of chemotherapy treatments, and dedicated teaching and research facilities.

Anticipated benefits derived using Intouch’s patient flow platform include a reduction in queues, improved care delivery and patient visibility, improved patient experience, improved operational efficiency, reduced administrative burden on staff, Moreover, the room and resource solutions will serve to increase room utilization, reducing out of hours clinics and clinic backlogs.
