Second quarter 2018 revenue was $566,320, a decrease of 12% over first quarter 2018 revenue. This decrease was mainly caused by an increase in physician vacation hours of 50% impacting a 50% decrease in deliveries for the period.

Dr. Michael Dent, the Company’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “I am pleased with the results of our health services division showing a 10% growth in revenue in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same time last year. This growth was based upon a 9% increase in patient appointments. Southwest Florida typically experiences a significant decrease in population during these months and to see an increase in patient appointments is a reflection of increased patient engagement and retention, which are two key metrics of the HealthLynked Network.
We continue to deploy the enhanced HealthLynked suite of services and we expect to see continued improvements in our health services division through the second half of 2018.”
