About Us

 

OUR MISSION

We want to fundamentally improve the delivery of healthcare in Canada.

Our focus is on improving the specialist care experience for patients & clinicians from the time of a referral through follow up. Our engagement begins with a smart referral form, involving patients through health history collection and informing our teams through secure communication. Our clinical support algorithms enable efficient identification of priority cases and our enhanced education app allows clinicians to send information and instructions directly to patients to prepare for and recover from surgery.
