T-Mobile and Zyter Inc. announced a preferred partnership to deliver virtual health care solutions – including telehealth and remote patient monitoring and care team collaboration — to more health care organizations and their patients throughout the United States. Together, the companies are making virtual care more accessible to more people, which serves to improve patient outcomes, reduce readmission rates and increase overall patient wellbeing.
Since COVID-19, there has been more demand than ever for virtual health care. According to the International Data Corp., 51 percent of U.S. consumers are concerned or very concerned about going to a health care facility. Additionally, the Federal Communications Commission has reported that more than 18 million American do not have access to high-speed broadband networks.
By partnering with T-Mobile, Zyter’s digital health platform and products including, Zyter Telehealth, Zyter Remote Patient Monitoring and ZyterHome will reach more people.
“We believe that every American has the right to quality health care that is safe and secure,” said Mike Katz, EVP, T-Mobile. “By partnering with Zyter, we can outfit health care 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.”
Under the terms of this agreement, Zyter and T-Mobile will collaborate to deliver integrated health care solutions to existing and potential T-Mobile customers nationwide. Together, the companies will enable health care organizations to provide patients with remote and secure collaboration with care teams that can monitor, diagnose, and remotely treat patients anytime, virtually anywhere, using the T-Mobile 4G LTE/5G network.
“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,” said Sanjay Govil, founder and CEO of Zyter Inc. “By working together, we can help organizations improve patient satisfaction while maintaining care quality and lowering costs.”
These solutions are already available for integrated delivery networks, life science companies, hospitals, health systems and payer organizations around the country, and with T-Mobile, more health care providers will be able to scale and deploy these virtual health solutions quickly to ensure more Americans have access to quality care, in the safety and convenience of their own home.
