New Hippo eReferrals
We’re a Vancouver-based startup that builds healthcare software focused on improving the patient experience. Our tools focus on supporting the patient journey from the time of a referral through to followup and recovery. We’ve deployed our software at hospitals and clinics across BC, including St. Paul’s Hospital and BC Children’s Hospital.
