BROSSARD, Quebec, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diagnos Inc. (“DIAGNOS” or “the Corporation”) (TSX Venture: ADK), (DGNOF), a leader in early detection of critical health issues through the use of its FLAIRE platform based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), is pleased to announce that it has signed a one-year agreement (the “Agreement”) with Organic Medical Growth OMG3 Inc. (“OMG”) which will enable DIAGNOS to have access to more than 7,800 points of sale across Colombia.
Under the Agreement, DIAGNOS’ AI diabetic retinopathy screening platform CARA will be available for trial in five pharmacies across Colombia. This will also serve as a starting point for the partnership between the two companies, both of which are committed to jointly work on future initiatives that target the use of CBD oil and other cannabis-based derivatives for diabetes.
“We are very pleased to join forces with OMG in order to make available our AI retinal solutions in Colombia so that thousands of patients can benefit from it. In the near future, we will explore the possibilities of combining DIAGNOS’ proprietary AI solutions for early detection of pathologies with cannabis-based medicinal products”, declared Mr. Andre Larente, President of DIAGNOS.
“We are excited about bringing DIAGNOS’ proprietary platform to Colombia through our partner’s distribution network. As a Canadian company with operations in Colombia, we welcome the opportunity to connect and facilitate relations between businesses in both countries, especially when they offer AI solutions that can directly impact and benefit people that suffer from specific health conditions. We further plan to explore other areas of collaboration with DIAGNOS, including opportunities to research and develop cannabis-based products that can be used by people suffering from diabetic retinopathy and other health issues linked to diabetes”, said Mr. Jorge Diaz, Founder & CEO of Organic Medical Growth OMG3 Inc.
