Brisbane, Australia, 3 June 2021 — ResApp Health Limited (ASX:RAP), a leading digital health company developing smartphone applications for the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease, today provides an update on Medgate AG’s (“Medgate”) pilot trial of ResApp’s smartphone-based acute respiratory diagnostic test ResAppDx across its telemedicine services.
Medgate commenced a pilot trial of ResApp’s smartphone-based acute respiratory diagnostic test ResAppDx across its telemedicine services in March 2021 (refer ASX announcement: 4 March 2021).
Following an interim review, Medgate and ResApp have decided to extend the pilot by two months. This additional time will be used to collect further data and optimise Medgate’s integration of ResAppDx within its telemedicine services.
CEO and Managing Director, Dr Tony Keating said: “Medgate and our clinical experts have found the data collected during the initial pilot period was consistent with the data from our extensive clinical studies, further demonstrating the accuracy of our cough-based diagnostic technology. We also continue our negotiations with Medgate for the commercial deployment of ResAppDx.
“Medgate has made a strong commitment to ResApp and both parties remain confident of a successful outcome. We are very appreciative of the ongoing support and insights provided by the team at Medgate and look forward to a continued innovative and mutually beneficial relationship.”
Dr Andy Fischer, CEO Medgate said: ‘’Our preliminary data is consistent with ResApp’s clinical study results and we received positive feedback from our patients regarding their experience with the ResAppDx test. We are extending the pilot to gain more experience and further optimise our workflows to maximise the benefits of ResAppDx for Medgate and its patients.‘’
