This deal enables healthcare providers—like plastic and reconstructive surgeons—to scale and deploy virtual health options giving more Americans access to remote quality care.
T-Mobile and Zyter Inc have launched a preferred partnership to deliver virtual healthcare solutions — including telehealth and remote patient monitoring and care team collaboration — to more healthcare organizations and their patients across the U.S. Together, the companies are making virtual care accessible to more people, which serves to improve patient outcomes, reduce readmission rates and increase overall patient wellbeing.
Since COVID-19, there has been a much heavier demand for virtual healthcare. According to IDC, 51% of U.S. consumers are concerned or very concerned about going to a healthcare 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, the Zyter Digital Health Platform and products including, Zyter Telehealth, Zyter Remote Patient Monitoring and ZyterHome — will reach more people over T-Mobile’s 5G network. According to the company, Zyter healthcare solutions can be customized to fit every practitioner’s specific needs.
“We believe that every American has the right to quality healthcare that is safe and secure,” said Mike Katz, executive vice president, T-Mobile. “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.”
Under the terms of this agreement, Zyter and T-Mobile will collaborate to deliver integrated healthcare solutions to existing and potential T-Mobile customers nationwide. Together, the companies will enable healthcare organizations to provide patients with remote and secure collaboration with care teams who can monitor, diagnose, and remotely treat patients anytime, virtually anywhere, using the T-Mobile 4G LTE/5G network.
The company says that these options are already available for integrated delivery networks, life science companies, hospitals, health systems and payer organizations around the country, and with T-Mobile, the goal is to help more healthcare providers quickly scale and deploy these virtual health solutions to ensure that more Americans have access to quality care, in the safety and convenience of their own home.
