T-Mobile US, an American wireless network operator, has announced a partnership with Zyter, a provider of cloud-based, software as a service (SaaS) digital health products. The companies are partnering to deliver virtual healthcare solutions to healthcare organizations and their patients across the US, including telehealth and remote patient monitoring and care team collaboration.
The alliance comes at a time of high demand for virtual healthcare. Since the start of the pandemic, 51% of US residents have expressed concern about visiting hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
The partnership aims to make virtual care accessible to more people in order to improve patient outcomes, lower readmission hospital rates and improve patient wellbeing. This agreement will serve healthcare organizations in providing remote and secure communications between patients and health care teams in order to monitor, diagnose, and remotely treat patients wherever they are, making use of the T-Mobile 4G and 5G networks.
This deal ensures that more Americans will have access to quality health care from the comfort of their own home, as well as makes certain that more healthcare providers will be capable of quickly scaling and deploying virtual health solutions. Also, with Zyter software, all patients will have their own complete profile, that include patient records, scans and lab results, with the data accessible from anywhere.
Mike Katz, EVP, T-Mobile, commented: “We believe that every American has the right to quality healthcare that is safe and secure. By partnering with Zyter, we can outfit healthcare organizations of all sizes with solutions that reach more people and enable faster and more reliable virtual care through familiar devices like smartphones and tablets.”
“This is a significant agreement for Zyter as it enables us to leverage the vast resources and footprint of T-Mobile to make our digital health solutions more accessible to more patients. By working together, we can help organizations improve patient satisfaction while maintaining care quality and lowering costs,” added Sanjay Govil, founder and CEO of Zyter, Inc.
