CARESPAN HEALTH, INC. ISSUES SECOND QUARTER and First Six Months ended June 30, 2023 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Carespan Health Inc. has released its consolidated results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. All amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars.
The Company's profitability improved during the quarter compared to the same period last year despite the decline in revenue due to the reduction of Covid-related cases and typical seasonality. Operating (loss) in Q2 2023 improved by 22% from Q2 2022. This was achieved through a steady shift to higher-margin services and continued cost containment and productivity measurestaken by the Company starting in 2022, reducing operating expenses by $1,124,120, or 48%, from Q2 2022 to Q2 2023.
The decline in patient encounters and revenue between the first six months of 2023 compared to the first six months of June 30, 2022 is due singularly to the significant drop in COVID-19- related encounters and associated reimbursements. The surge in COVID-19/Omicron-related cases in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022, and its subsequent decline is consistent with COVID-19 case patterns experienced across the United States. The decline in revenue from Q1 2023 to Q2 2023 is related to the typical seasonality of clinical encounters.
While COVID 19-related encounters declined, patient visits related to medical assessments for U.S. military veterans increased by over 70% for the same period, from 670 in the first six months of 2022 compared to over 1,150 in the first six months of 2023.
According to Rembert de Villa, Chairman and CEO, "We continue to scale services that drive improved productivity and margins, such as conducting medical assessments for U.S. military veterans. As we reported in our 2022 annual results, we are focused on accelerating our path to get to cash flow positive by executing on the current backlog of higher-margin contracts, developing new contracts for our members, and right-sizing operations and SG&A.
In Q2 2023, we continued to be very intentional in our in our technology spend, enhancing our 'Clinic-in-the-Cloud' platform through high-impact functions and features that improve revenue capture and profitability."
