AMD Global Telemedicine and iTelemed announce new business partnership

News

iTelemed a London, Ontario-based provider of virtual health care solutions is proud to announce its partnership with AMD Global Telemedicine, a Chelmsford, Massachusetts based provider of digital and telehealth technology solutions worldwide.

This partnership arrives at a time when Canada is most in need of support for its marginalized populations within congregate living facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This partnership is backed by the creation of a full training program and accreditation support through Fanshawe College Corporate Training Solutions (CTS) which will bring the needed infrastructure support to Canada's evolving digital health ecosystem. AMD Global Telemedicine brings world class support and business experience to this relationship and is committed to supporting and developing growth and solutions with Canadian-based innovation and Canadian-based economic development within the ecosystem being supported by this deal.

iTelemed has been innovating within the public-funded health care space and believes virtual health care should be accessible to all Canadians, most importantly to medically fragile and marginalized individuals. AMD Global Telemedicine is a strong partner with robust infrastructure supports and a similar passion and proven record for reaching marginalized and remote populations. AMD's proven solutions with the software platform "AGNES", integration with peripherals and interoperability within EHRs will provide incredible telemedicine technology support to Canada's newly developing digital health ecosystem. iTelemed in partnership with Fanshawe CTS will bring robust training and support required for the iTelemed Mobile Virtual Medical (MVM) kits that will be accredited and quickly replicated across Canada to support the fight against COVID-19.

We are excited to announce this partnership for two reasons:

  1. COVID-19 has been particularly hard upon individuals within congregate living facilities and the iTelemed MVM kits are an immediate solution to bring virtual "care in place" to these settings. This solution is now being backed by AMD Global Telemedicine resource supports and ability to scale across Canada for the fight against COVID-19;
  2. This partnership brings together Canadian iTelemed innovation, Canadian-based Fanshawe College training and development, supported by US-based AMD Global Telemedicine technology and infrastructure support. This partnership is not just a win-win for the partners involved, but a win-win for Canada in growing local and national economies around digital health care provision of service, infrastructure support and job metrics, research and training for new models of health care, innovation and technological design between Canada and international corporations such as AMD.
