REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- biotricity inc. (OTC.QB:BTCY), a healthcare technology company committed to delivering innovative, medically relevant biometric remote monitoring solutions, has partnered with Global to Local (G2L), an organization dedicated to providing programs that improve individual and community health outcomes, expand access to healthcare services, and empower economic development in the most diverse and underserved communities. The collaboration between biotricity and G2L will initially focus on building innovative solutions for outcome measurements for individuals suffering from chronic disease. ¿ ¿"Underserved populations face barriers to basic health and economic resources, including a lack of access to preventative care, which contributes to the mismanagement of chronic disease and can result in a shortened lifespan," said Dr. Siddiqui, Director of Research and Innovation at Global to Local. G2L has tested numerous chronic disease management solutions on the market - and to date, have not found any that address the needs of the patient, the needs of the provider, and needs of the health system in a way that creates efficiency and drives down costs. "We are excited to work closely with biotricity and translate our expertise to help them build solutions that can be scaled efficiently and work effectively for everyone involved," Siddiqui added. This partnership with biotricity enables G2L to apply its clinical expertise to help develop the next generation of chronic care solutions that address the gaps identified in existing solutions. biotricity's expertise in remote monitoring technology is a perfect fit with G2L's goal of using innovative, holistic, and community-driven solutions to address health and economic disparities in various low-income populations. Global to Local's approach recognizes that access to good health is dependent on factors such as economic opportunity, education, language, and job skills.¿ G2L is piloting global approaches to improve individual and community health outcomes for prediabetes, diabetes, and obesity with a focus on improving access through low-cost solutions while also empowering economic development in two of the most diverse and underserved communities in King County, Washington - SeaTac and Tukwila. ¿Their long-term goal is to design a sustainable model of care for communities around the country that face similar health and economic disparities. G2L's programs have already expanded into other parts of Washington State, and will soon enter nearby states through their partnerships with Providence Health, Swedish Hospital, and Washington State University.
