("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves brands, commercial locations, retailers and service providers throughout North America today announced that its Australian distributor and reseller, JEA Technologies ("JEA) has entered into a collaborative partnership with eHealth Consortium Group ("eHealth), to bring digital health proximity mobile messaging to the Public and Private Hospital and Health industry in Australia.
"We're very pleased to be working with JEA and the iSIGN Media Smart Antenna solution in the Public and Private Hospital sector," said Mr. Garry Ganis, Chief Executive Officer at eHealth. "With our MultiMed solution we have been looking for a cost effective proximity messaging technology to improve Public health messaging, and provide additional information about medical services available on site using a Hospitals digital signage. The Smart Antenna by iSIGN Media provides that solution."
"Traditional static public health information in public spaces in Hospitals no longer meet the needs of the mobile, digital generation, and apps and beacons are not relevant to the public passing through Hospitals, seeking immediate information," stated Mr. Jasen Hill, eHealth's Director of Technology.
"Hospitals and Outpatient services will be able to message patients and the community more effectively onsite seeking Public or Private Health services," added Mr. Hill. "More than this, Hospitals and State and Federal Government Health departments are looking for analytics to measure the effectiveness of getting their message, and onsite services out to the public in this digital age cost effectively. The resulting data and metrics collected by iSIGN's technology and Smart Antenna will allow Health Departments and Hospitals to better develop and focus Preventative health messaging."
"Our plan at eHealth is to work with JEA and the digital signage industry to provide proximity messaging solutions to the health sector in identifying the most effective locations to locate the ISIGN Smart Antenna," stated Mr. Ganis.
"We are looking forward to a long and rewarding collaborative partnership with ehealth," said Mr. Craig Kinder, Director of JEA Technologies. "The need for analytics and provision of services on site in the Health sector is happening now as we move more and more into the mobile digital and Internet of Things age."
"We are pleased to be able to announce the initial use of our technology and hardware in the health industry channel," said Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "JEA and eHealth are in the process of analyzing the number of Smart Antennas that will be required to meet their needs. Our understanding is that the initial need would be several hundred antennas and more as they complete their assessment."
"We are confident that this installation will help to facilitate our entry into the health channel, pharmacies and medical industry in North America," added Mr. Romanov.
