The Company reported revenue of $480,723, and an operating loss of $512,153 that included approximately $135,500 of legal, accounting and other expenses related to our ongoing public filings and investor relations cost and approximately $158,500 of incremental salary, benefits and other costs related to investment in initial sales & marketing efforts, and software development of the HealthLynked Network; offset by a reduction in Naples Women’s Center’s general and administrative expenses of approximately $45,000, as compared with the third quarter of 2016. These results compare with revenue of $516,798 and operating loss of $482,570 in the second quarter of 2016.
Dr. Michael Dent, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Revenue from Naples Women’s Center (NWC), our wholly owned OB/GYN medical practice, was impacted by our office closure from Hurricane Irma in September, resulting in a 7% decrease in revenue compared with second quarter 2017.” He continued, “Introduction of the HealthLynked Network by our direct sales force focused on the Florida market in Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville. During the third quarter, we also created over 880,000 HealthLynked Provider base profiles – one for every physician in the U.S. In the fourth quarter, we expect to invest in expanding our software platform, direct marketing to patients, and bringing on our medical advisory board of physicians to both utilize and provide feedback on the HealthLynked Network.”
