IntelliCentrics and EUCARE Announce Strategic Partnership Supporting Delivery of Taiwan’s High-Quality, Integrated Medical Services to the World

IntelliCentrics | November 08, 2021

IntelliCentrics, the innovator of the SEC³URE Ethos, SEC³URE Passport, Link & GO!, BioBytes™ and BioBytes™ Visitor, and EUCARE, a 24/7 online medical consultation service of emergency doctors, specialists, and pharmacists based in Taiwan, announced a partnership delivering an integrated end-to-end medical services solution. The EUCARE’s services and medical staff network aims to remove physical barriers of access to high-quality medical services, which is also in response to the international telemedicine policy of Taiwan’s Ministry of Health, or MOH. The partnership between IntelliCentrics and EUCARE will expand IntelliCentrics’ technology platform, which ensures delivery of care can be trusted, with medical staff on EUCARE’s network providing broad 24/7 medical consultation, removing geographic barriers of access to healthcare.

“For the first time, the IntelliCentrics’ and EUCARE’s partnership provides families of students, business professionals, vacationers, with the peace of mind they remain connected to and can access Taiwan’s high-quality medical resources while traveling abroad.”

Mike Sheehan, CEO of IntelliCentrics

The national health system of Taiwan is widely considered to be a world-class healthcare system. “EUCARE’s broad range of medical consultations range from emergency, specialist, psychological, and pharmaceutical providing those abroad with comprehensive care of the same high quality when they are home while integrating the data into a single health record. We expect this great advancement will be shared with the world in the near future,” said Alex Chuang, Chairman of EUCARE.

The partnership will begin with serving overseas Taiwanese in Mainland China, North America, and the UK to expand the coverage to ultimately make access to Taiwan's high-quality medical resources available to citizens worldwide.

Children of women prescribed an opioid painkiller face a nearly 2.5-fold higher risk of being hospitalized for opioid overdose than children whose mothers don’t receive these drugs, according to a new study from the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) and The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). The dramatic increase in the prescribing of opioids such as codeine and oxycodone over the past two decades in North America has been associated with a marked increase in fatal overdoses.
