InTouch Technologies Receives $6M Investment from iRobot

InTouch Technologies, Inc., a Santa Barbara, CA-based provider of acute healthcare remote presence solutions that does business as InTouch Health, has received a $6m investment from iRobot Corp.

InTouch Health and iRobot – a leader in delivering robot technology-based solutions – have a joint development and licensing agreement, formalized in July 2011, to explore opportunities for healthcare applications of robotic technology by uniting complementary expertise and technologies across their respective intellectual property portfolio.
This collaboration will allow InTouch Health to advance its healthcare-centric robotic platform to a new level of mobility and utility.

Led by Chairman and CEO Yulun Wang, the company provides comprehensive telemedicine solutions and expertise that enable physicians to perform real-time consults with patients.
Through a single portal, physicians can access InTouch Health’s FDA-cleared remote presence devices to provide care anywhere across the healthcare continuum: EDs, ICUs, procedure rooms, patient wards, clinics, ambulances, and homes.
The company has more than 400 hospital locations on six continents enrolled in its Remote Presence network for the delivery of telemedicine services such as stroke, critical care, cardiology, trauma, pediatrics, neonatology, mental health, language translation, clinical education and surgical/procedure mentoring.
