Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights
- Revenues of US$2.875 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to US$2.311 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of 24%.
- Patient visits for the six months ended June 30, 2022 were 23,106 compared to 13,500 for the same period in 2021, primarily driven by a surge in COVID-19 related patient visits in the first quarter of 2022 and the seasonal nature of the business.
- The number of providers in our networks increased to 100 practitioners as of June 30, 2022 from approximately 50 practioners as of June 30, 2021.
- Net Loss Before Income Taxes for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was US$1,904,520, compared to a net loss of US$2,463,181 during the same period last year, resulting from improved cost management and operating efficiency while growing the revenue base.
- Second quarter 2022 revenue was US$1.110 million, which represents a seasonal decline in patient visits between the first and second quarter, i.e., the transition from winter months, when a spike in patients visits is typically experienced, to spring months when patient visits decline through the summer months.
- The Company’s cash balance was US$355,374 as of June 30, 2022 compared to US$948,662 as of December 31, 2021. Cash was used mainly for working capital to support business operations and growth.
Revenue Growth and Cost Restructuring Plan

According to Rembert de Villa, “We aim to help our network providers drive and promote better health outcomes through the combination of RPM and Chronic Care Management (“CCM“), which we have now started to implement.”
In addition to the focus on growing the Company’s top line, CareSpan is equally-focused on continuing to implement the cost reduction plan initiated in 2021. According to Leslie Markow, Chief Financial Officer, “We are on track with our cost reduction initiatives and are making progress in achieving meaningful savings by the end of the year. We have been very deliberate in prioritizing our spend in improving areas of technology and services that will drive revenue and improve customer satisfaction, while improving operating efficiency and leverage.”

Our focus on enabling nurse practitioners and mental health providers with our suite of digital care technology and business services to provide affordable quality care to the underserved continues to bear fruit in the market,” said de Rembert de Villa.
