Reliq Health Announces Appointment of New Chief Medical Officer

Reliq Health Technologies Inc., a technology company focused on developing innovative mobile health (mHealth) and telemedicine solutions for Community-Based Healthcare, announced today that Dr. Richard Sztramko has joined the company as its Chief Medical Officer, working out of the Company’s operational headquarters in Hamilton, Ontario.

“We are thrilled to have a physician with Dr. Sztramko’s experience and clinical expertise join our team,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health.

“His background in Geriatrics and General Internal Medicine and his entrepreneurial experience in the eHealth space will make him an invaluable resource for the Company and for our customers,” Crossley continues. “As we roll out our platform to >48,000 patients at Paz Home Health (Pharr, TX) and the Rio Grande Valley Health Alliance Accountable Care Organization (McAllen, TX) and bring on new customers in the future, Dr. Sztramko’s clinical background will help us ensure that our products comprehensively support clinicians’ workflows while delivering best in class virtual healthcare to their patients.”

Dr. Sztramko practices Geriatric and General Internal Medicine at St. Peter’s, Hamilton General, and Juravinski Hospitals in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Prior to joining Reliq Health he co-founded Virtual Ward, a startup focused on healthcare provider communication within hospitals, and created an online education tool for patients with Dementia and their caregivers (iGeriCare).

“I’m very excited about working with the rest of the Reliq Health team to provide innovative, user-friendly virtual care and telemedicine solutions to patients in the community,” said Dr. Sztramko. “Studies consistently show that providing patients with the tools they need for self-management of their chronic conditions produces better health outcomes and reduces healthcare costs. Reliq’s remote patient monitoring system quickly and easily collects sophisticated health data from patients in their own homes. The secure, cloud-based care collaboration platform provides the clinical care team, patient and family members with real-time access to patient health information including trends over time. This helps clinicians like myself identify high risk patients and intervene early, before a serious complication develops, improving health outcomes, preventing readmissions and ER visits, reducing healthcare costs and increasing patient and family satisfaction.”
