Shares in Respiri Limited (ASX:RSH), an eHealth SaaS company supporting respiratory health management, hit a high of 11.5 cents on Tuesday, representing a 55% rise relative to its previous closing price of 7.4 cents.

The sharp uptick in the company’s share price was under the highest volumes traded in 2020, underlining the significance of the news released shortly after the market opened.

The signing of a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with Phenix Health Pty Ltd, an Australian based health workflow designer for virtual healthcare settings (telemedicine) triggered substantial investor interest.

Under the terms of the JDA, Respiri will work to ensure that the wheezo eHealth SaaS monitoring platform is integrated into the Phenix proprietary telehealth platform, patient dashboards and asthma management plans.

Respiri’s world-first technology detects wheeze, a typical symptom of asthma, COPD and respiratory disease to provide an objective measure of airway limitation.

The only platform of its kind, the flagship wheezo® product employs machine learning to provide personalised feedback and education based on the user's personal health data correlated with environmental factors, and enables the sharing of that data, anytime, anywhere with caregivers, physicians and other health care professionals.
