September 16, 2021 (Source) — Diagnos Inc. (“DIAGNOS” or “the Company”) (TSX Venture: ADK) (OTCQB: DGNOF) (FRA: 4D4A), a leader in early detection of certain critical health issues, announces the signing of a 7-year contract with Juarez Health & Medical Tourism Cluster (“the Cluster”), headquartered in Ciudad Juarez located in the State of Chihuahua, Mexico.
The Juarez Health & Medical Tourism Cluster will be the distributor of DIAGNOS’ CARA platform in Mexico. Its close ties to the northern region’s health care network as well as in Mexico’s private and public sectors makes it the ideal partner for DIAGNOS. Mexico has a very high rate of diabetes and hypertension amongst its population which makes it a prime market territory for DIAGNOS.
“Patient Safety and quality of medical services is the lifeblood of our organization. Joining forces with DIAGNOS aligns perfectly with our permanent goal of making Ciudad Juarez a Global Health Destination”, said Dr. Lorenzo Soberanes, President and Board Member of the Juarez Health and Medical Tourism Cluster. “We plan to allocate DIAGNOS’ turn-key solution in at least 20 sites in the first 2 years of the contract. The deployment will begin on September 25th and we plan to distribute DIAGNOS’ technology in 5 points of care (POC) by the end of 2021”, concluded Dr. Soberanes.
“We look forward to supporting Juarez Health and Medical Tourism Cluster in its mission by supplying our AI-based technology and screen their patients in real time, so they can be monitored and treated by specialists”, noted Mr. André Larente, President and CEO DIAGNOS. “DIAGNOS is proud to have its technology recognized and adopted as a next generation solution for patient screening at Juarez Health and Medical Tourism Cluster members. This agreement is an important step in commercializing the CARA platform in Mexico and Latin America”, concluded Mr. André Larente.
