Brisbane, Australia, 9 November 2020 — ResApp Health Limited (ASX:RAP), a leading digital health company developing smartphone applications for the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease, is pleased to announce that it has signed a six-month joint development and pilot agreement with Medgate AG (“Medgate”) to integrate and test ResApp’s smartphone-based acute respiratory diagnostic test ResAppDx in Medgate’s telemedicine services.
Medgate is a leading provider of telehealth services. Since 2000, Medgate has been operating Europe’s largest telemedical centre in Switzerland, and employs over 500 employees worldwide, including over 200 physicians.
Medgate and ResApp will work together to build and pilot an integration of ResAppDx in the Medgate services. The integration phase of the project, which covers both technical integration and clinical workflows, is expected to take two months, with a three-month pilot period to evaluate the integration expected to begin in early 2021. During the pilot phase, ResApp and Medgate will jointly assess the impact of ResAppDx on Medgate’s telehealth service through a number of key performance indicators.
During the pilot, ResApp and Medgate expect to enter into negotiations on the cost model of using ResAppDx on Medgate’s telehealth service.
ResApp will not receive material revenue from the pilot project. Either party may terminate the joint development and pilot agreement by providing 30 days’ notice.
CEO and Managing Director Dr Tony Keating said: “We are very pleased to have entered into this pilot agreement with such a high calibre partner. Medgate is a well-known and respected organisation and we look forward to working with them to deliver our ResAppDx product to their customers.
“This partnership is ongoing validation of our offering and will potentially allow the company to pursue a large market opportunity in Europe, as well as in Asia and the Middle East where Medgate also has operations. I look forward to updating shareholders on the integration and commencement of the pilot initiative in the coming months.”
