Tunstall Australasia brings people-centred, integrated healthcare to Asia with Revlis Biotech
In June 2016, Tunstall Healthcare entered into an exclusive connected health and care distribution agreement with Chinese health organisation Revlis Biotech, cementing Tunstall’s position in Asia as a leading health technology provider.
Tunstall rekindled their long-term business relationship with Revlis while on a trade mission with Trade and Investment Queensland in November of last year, after originally working together back in 2006.
Tunstall Australasia Managing Director Lyn Davies was delighted to officially announce the agreement.
“This partnership is an exciting opportunity for Tunstall and Revlis to revolutionise healthcare across Asia, and to build on a lasting and rewarding relationship between our two companies,” said Ms Davies.
“China’s ageing population requires effective and integrated healthcare, and together we can deliver unique solutions that provide the best possible care,” she said.
Revlis Biotech’s Chief Operating Officer Martin Chang said this new venture has the potential to improve the lives of thousands of Chinese seniors.
“With the support of Tunstall, we aim to reach 32,000 connected health patients and 16,000 connected care clients by 2019,” said Mr Chang.
“This is the first people-centred, integrated healthcare service of its kind in China, and one that the aged care market greatly needs,” he said.
Released in late July, a report by the World Bank, World Health Organisation, and China's Ministry of Finance, National Health and Family Planning Commission, and Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, recommended China switch to people-centred, integrated care, reducing hospital admissions and cutting down on health costs.
“With in-home emergency alarm monitoring and remote chronic disease management, this new service will enable seniors to stay out of hospital or residential care and enjoy a better quality of life,” said Mr Chang.
“We will be launching two Smart Care Monitoring Centres based in Shanghai and Qingdao, staffed by qualified nurses, and with the capacity to service clients across China,” he said.
Tunstall is currently developing Chinese versions of both their PNC call management software and ICP patient management system.
“With Tunstall’s management software, our centres will be able to support a range of clients, from those who need a little extra reassurance at home via a medical alarm, to those with long-term conditions who require daily health management,” said Mr Chang.
Tunstall will also integrate the Revlis Cmate® ECG with the ICP system, providing patients and clinicians with a portable device that can continuously record ECG data for up to 24 hours.
Moving forward, Tunstall and Revlis will continue to collaborate with local hospitals, community care providers and government to support the growth and development of cutting-edge healthcare technology and services.
