VitalHub Announces Licensing Agreement of Pre-Op Solutions, Synopsis Home and Synopsis iQ, to Bolton NHS Foundation Trust

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA


TORONTO, Aug. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSX: VHI | OTCQX: VHIBF) is pleased to announce a licensing agreement of subsidiary Intouch with Health’s (“Intouch”) digital, at-home pre-op solutions, Synopsis Home and Synopsis iQ, to the Bolton NHS Foundation Trust (the “Trust” or “Bolton”).

This agreement is a new customer contract, further expanding the Company’s presence across the National Health Service, and will provide Bolton with access to Intouch’s award-winning Synopsis Home and iQ products. This sale responds to a need identified by Bolton NHS Foundation Trust to alleviate their elective care backlog, increasing operational efficiency and throughput. The Trust needed a solution to enable departments to be more efficient to cope with the additional surgeries required to work toward clearing the elective backlog, and chose the Company’s products to address these challenges.

The Bolton NHS Foundation Trust is one of the North West’s busiest acute NHS foundation trusts, providing a range of health and wellbeing services to people across Bolton and other parts of Greater Manchester area, and is classed as amongst the best in the region for several of their services. The Royal Bolton Hospital is a major hub in Greater Manchester for women’s and children’s services and is the second busiest ambulance-receiving site in Greater Manchester.

With the integration of Synopsis Home and Synopsis iQ, the Trust can expect to see better visibility into their elective backlog, streamlined pre-op assessments which will alleviate managerial pressures, a triaging platform that will limit unnecessary appointments and better tend to complex patients, open integration into existing systems, flexible workflow, comprehensive and accurate pre-op assessments, and decision making support that highlights risk through the 250+ algorithms programmed into Synopsis modules. In turn, the Company expects the deployment of the Synopsis solutions to empower the Trust to better manage its elective backlog pressures.

“We are excited to begin working with Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, as we continue to grow our customer base,” said Dan Matlow, CEO of VitalHub Corp. “This deal further reinforces the market demand for our best-in-class patient flow solutions. We look forward to continuing to progress our growth strategy, supporting our customers in achieving the highest standards of care delivery.”
