Brisbane, Australia, 1 July 2020 — ResApp Health Limited (ASX:RAP), a leading digital health company developing smartphone applications for the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease, and Coviu Global Pty Ltd, Australia’s leading telehealth platform provider, have signed a service agreement to make ResApp’s acute respiratory diagnostic test, ResAppDx-EU available through Coviu’s web-based telehealth platform. ResAppDx-EU is approved by the Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia and is CE Marked in Europe as an aid for clinicians in the diagnosis of a range of respiratory diseases.
The two-year, non-exclusive commercial agreement allows ResApp to provide ResAppDx-EU to customers of the Coviu platform within Australia. The per test license fee paid to ResApp is in the previously targeted range of $5 to $10. The agreement may be extended beyond the initial two-year term by mutual agreement and either party may terminate the licence by providing 60 days written notice.
A spinout from CSIRO’s Data61, Coviu’s telehealth platform makes it easy for healthcare providers to offer their services directly to patients via video consultation whilst incorporating a range of digital assessment tools to assist in virtual consults. The Coviu platform has over 22,000 active health professionals using the service.
“We are pleased to have worked closely with Coviu to provide ResAppDx-EU to Australian clinicians via Coviu’s platform,” said Tony Keating, CEO and Managing Director of ResApp. “Respiratory symptoms are among the most common reasons for patients to request a telehealth consultation and for the first time clinicians on Coviu’s platform will have an accurate way of assessing those symptoms remotely.”
The ResAppDx Coviu Add-On will be available to Coviu’s customers on 9 July when Coviu completes their next scheduled platform update. The initial launch release will be available to patients using iPhones, while all platforms (mobile and desktop) are supported on the clinician side. An Android version for patients will be available later this year.
