Since COVID-19, there has been more demand than ever for virtual healthcare. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has reported that more than 18 million American do not have access to high-speed broadband networks. By partnering with T-Mobile, Zyter’s platform — Zyter Digital Health Platform and products including, Zyter Telehealth, Zyter Remote Patient Monitoring, and ZyterHome — will “reach more people over the nation’s largest, fastest, and most reliable 5G network.”

“We believe that every American has the right to quality healthcare that is safe and secure,” said Mike Katz, EVP, 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 help “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.”

“This is a significant agreement for Zyter as it enables us to leverage the vast resources and footprint of T-Mobile to make our digital health solutions more accessible to more patients,” said Sanjay Govil, Founder and CEO of Zyter, Inc. “By working together, we can help organizations improve patient satisfaction while maintaining care quality and lowering costs.”
