Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 13, 2022) - wellteq Digital Health Inc. (CSE: WTEQ) (OTCQB: WTEQF), (the "Company" or wellteq"), which supplies digital health and wellness solutions to customers in 12 languages across 32 countries is pleased to announce the Beta release of its new internet of medical things (IoMT) HealthHub, targeting commercial release later this year.

Based on a survey2 of physicians in the United States who serve predominantly Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) and Medicare Advantage (MA) patients, McKinsey estimates that up to $265 billion (about $820 per person in the US) worth of care services - which represents up to 25% of the total cost of care - for Medicare FFS and MA beneficiaries could shift from traditional facilities to the home by 2025, without a reduction in quality or access.

The wellteq HealthHub has been developed from scratch by the Company, as an entirely new IoMT platform that can connect, manage, and monitor any standardized IoMT or IoT device using edge computing. Edge computing is part of a distributed computing topology in which information processing is located close to the physical location where things and people connect with the network. The HealthHub was specifically designed for the transition from centralized to distributed health deployments across enterprise health, clinic, pharmacy and for remote patient locations.

Edge computing augments and expands the possibilities of the primarily centralized, hyperscale cloud model of today, and supports the systemic evolution and deployment of the IoMT and new application types, enabling next-generation digital health applications. The HealthHub also offers contingency to cloud server processing in the case of a network outage to create a temporary stand-alone network.

The HealthHub has been built with wellteq's next-generation Unified API, which allows for secure remote monitoring and management, and enables third-party integrations with all aspects of the HealthHub and the API. This allows the HealthHub to be an integral value add for both new and existing EPHI (electronic protected health information) systems. All features and functionality delivered through wellteq's client applications and hardware will be offered as combined or stand-alone services for clients and partners to integrate with their own applications, services, and systems. This includes IoMT metrics capture, processing and automations, patient tracking with personalized digital coaching, reward scheme management, social activities, and content.

A powerful eight-core processor, large memory footprint and a versatile machine-learning secondary processor enable the hub to handle a wide variety of services, including natural language processing (NLP) services and auto-updated training models for artificial intelligence (AI). To best support the wide variety of IoMT devices, wellteq has designed a custom wireless chipset, enabling connectivity with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave and, optionally, cellular. Alongside the wireless chipset is a completely customized and optimized firmware stack that helps manage the multitude of wireless protocols, allowing the HealthHub to support over 500 connected IoMT and/or IoT devices simultaneously.

wellteq CEO, Scott Montgomery stated, "We are excited to initiate wellteq's entry into virtual care with a uniquely robust and truly one-of-kind solution. It has taken some time and a lot of effort, and we are proud to be the first company to launch an IoMT specific solution like the HealthHub that has been designed from scratch to facilitate the digital transition to virtual care for patients around the world."

wellteq is now working closely with its Beta research partners to integrate the HealthHub into their already deployed IoMT and IoT device configurations and applications for a variety of healthcare use cases, which will be the basis for wellteq's generic and condition-specific solutions for new B2B Virtual Care customers.
