Over the next two to three years, Australian startup studio IDE Group will collaborate with Kipuwex, a Finnish health system manufacturer, to create new telehealth solutions. The collaboration, according to Kipuwex CEO Marko Höynälä, aims to develop “reliable and accessible” telehealth solutions that will be sold globally.
Kipuwex said, “By increasing access to physicians and specialists, telehealth solutions will help ensure patients receive the right care, at the right place, at the right time, producing high-quality outcomes and saving millions of lives.” Kipuwex’s pain assessment and remote health monitoring system will be used by both businesses. The IoMT computer is conveniently detachable and lightweight, and it continuously tests biomarkers wirelessly.
During the pandemic, healthcare providers across Asia-Pacific, such as Columbia Asia Hospital in Malaysia, extended their telehealth services by establishing alliances. Health Digital Technologies, which operates the DoctorOnCall healthcare website, has teamed up with Celcom to look at digital health developments. Siriraj Hospital, Thailand’s largest public hospital, teamed up with two global technology services providers – NTT and Cisco – in January to use telemedicine to treat stroke patients more quickly.
George Sidis, Managing Director at IDE Group, said that this collaboration provides the group with a great opportunity to bring its entrepreneurial values, medtech hardware design and development expertise.
