MedAdvisor to integrate with US firm's mobile healthcare apps

Listed Australian medical technology company MedAdvisor has signed a deal with US-based iHealth Labs, covering integration with the latter's mobile healthcare solutions and apps.

Under the agreement, MedAdvisor will be iHealth's exclusive pharmacy app in Australia.

The California-based iHealth is a subsidiary of the Chinese manufacturer Andon Labs, a big OEM health technology company, with primary operations in Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore and California.

iHealth's MyVitals app, along with nine iHealth devices, was integrated into Apple's HealthKit in 2015. Chinese venture capital firm Xiaomi Ventures invested US$25 million in iHealth in 2014.

The integration between MedAdvisor and iHealth will be through a health hub which is to be launched shortly. It will operate within PlusOne which enables pharmacists to connect with their customers and allow subscribed pharmacies to deliver more automated functions.

MedAdvisor chief executive Robert Read said: “Managing health is not always easy. MedAdvisor continues to find new ways to improve the services we offer our pharmacy customers and to make easier for patients to manage their health.

"The integration of iHealth’s solutions into the MedAdvisor platform enables our pharmacy customers to offer their patients additional services, increasing the value of MedAdvisor and adding another revenue stream to our growing user generated revenue base.”

iHealth global product manager Wade Shu said: “By partnering with MedAdvisor, Australia’s leading health management application, iHealth is able to access an extensive network of pharmacies and over 750,000 patients who would derive significant benefits from our solutions.

"MedAdvisor’s application offers a simple and user friendly interface that we believe will greatly enhance the customer experience, enabling better oversight and management of their health.”
