BROSSARD, Quebec, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Diagnos Inc. (“DIAGNOS”, the “Corporation” or ”we”) (TSX Venture: ADK) (OTCQB: 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 the signing of a contract with Farmacias Benavides, a member of Walgreens Boots Alliance in Mexico.

“In Farmacias Benavides we are focussed on providing the best health and wellness products for Mexican families. As we keep our evolution into a much more digital health and integrated ecosystem, we’re happy to announce the service contract with DIAGNOS in order to support the Benamedic Wellness program. DIAGNOS uses non-invasive pre-screening technology done through the eye for early detection of retina diseases in real- time caused by diabetes, pre-diabetes (obesity) and hypertension. Unfortunately, 7 out of every 10 people are overweight in Mexico. We want to make DIAGNOS’ AI retina service, which commence in the next few weeks, accessible through our Benamedic Wellness program,” stated Mr. Guillermo Demis, CEO of Farmacias Benavides.

Benamedic is a catalog of medical services carry out by Farmacias Benavides, member of Walgreens Boots Alliance, through its extensive network of doctors at the points-of-care attached to the pharmacy stores. The objective is to provide medical guidance to the national population in Mexico.

“DIAGNOS has proven the efficiency of its AI solution and our experience in the roll-out of mass retina screening projects in the Mexican market. By joining efforts with Farmacias Benavides, a member of Walgreens Boots Alliance, we have the opportunity to serve the Mexican families by educating and preventing them from blindness caused by diabetes and hypertension: at least 4 out of every 10 people have either diabetes and/or hypertension, and still half of the population remains undiagnosed with having diabetes,” mentions Mr. André Larente, President of DIAGNOS.
