Our 2 most exclusive expertise you will find very useful 

By integrating top EHR/EMR such as Telus PS Suite, Oscar EMR, Accuro EMR, Cerner EMR, PointClickCare EHR, MED e-care EHR, we enable physicians to get instant access to crucial information of the patients from the telemedicine app itself. 

The telemedicine solution should be compliant with healthcare privacy laws to not put patients’ data at risk and not to be liable for the hefty fine. 

Our in-house compliance experts guide the development team to develop a compliant mobile/web app and they carry out a compliance audit before delivering it to you. 

Our telemedicine solution supports OHIP, MSP and AHCIP billing codes 

Televisits in Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia are covered by provincial health plans. 

Thus, to enable physicians to easily claim televisits fees from the government, the app should support billing codes. 

Due to this billing code support, hospitals can offer OHIP, MSP and AHCIP-covered televisits to patients. 

With built-in referral system, you can refer patients to specialists easily

A family physician or any primary care provider is the first contact for the patients.

After checking the patients, if needed, the primary care provider refer patients to the specialists for specialized care.

The telemedicine app allows primary care providers to refer patients with automatically generated referral note.

The primary care providers only need to write the referral message. The app itself adds other clinical and personal information of the patients in the referral note.

Our telehealth solution is for all medical departments of hospitals

We understand the fact that it’s not only the physician who requires a telemedicine solution, but any medical specialty in a hospital can offer virtual care to their patients. 

Thus, we engineer telemedicine solutions that support all use cases of hospitals.

Why should a hospital use a telemedicine solution? 

  • Online easy appointment

Using telemedicine for hospital solutions, patients can easily book online appointments with physicians for virtual medical consultation. 

  • Rapid patients onboarding / Less wait time 

A custom and personalized pre-visit online questionnaire makes patients’ onboarding experience seamless and fast which results in less wait time. 

  • Affordable care

Telemedicine saves travelling time and cost for both patients and care providers as they can talk to each other from anywhere in the world - even from home. 

  • Fewer patient footprints in hospitals 

Patients who do not require emergency care and patients who are on follow-up visits can effortlessly get access to medical services from home - without visiting the hospitals. 

This significantly reduces the chances of a COVID-19 outbreak in the hospitals. 

  • Less overwhelmed healthcare professionals 

The telemedicine solution facilitates healthcare providers to manage patients’ data easily and automate many reporting, data entry and collaboration work which reduce their administrative burdens and create time for them. 

Get answers to your most common questions 

1. Can hospitals bill for telemedicine? 

In Ontario, Alberta and B.C., telemedicine is covered under provincial health plans. So, in these provinces, the government pays for telemedicine - not patients. 

In the rest of Canada, hospitals can bill for telemedicine to patients. 

2. Why should hospitals not use free video calling platforms such as FaceTime, WhatsApp etc? 

The major reason is that not all free video calling platforms are compliant with data privacy laws. It also does not support custom clinical workflows. Additionally, it lacks many features such as medical notes, sick notes, ePrescriptions, payments etc.

3. Should hospitals develop a custom telemedicine solution or use a 3rd party SaaS solution? 

SaaS telemedicine solutions charge a monthly fee for using their solution. Here, hospitals do not own it. 

These SaaS solutions also do not support custom clinical workflows as they are general-purpose solutions. 

Whereas in the case of a custom solution, the hospitals enjoy the ultimate ownership and it is developed dedicatedly for the hospital itself. 

Most importantly, the hospital does not need to pay any monthly fees.

4. Are there any top hospitals in Canada using telemedicine? 

During the pandemic in 2020, many hospitals across Canada have adopted the telehealth for hospitals solution and have been using it successfully. 

For instance, the Windsor Regional Hospital is using telemedicine in a number of programs and services including follow-up ortho appointments, anesthesia consults, bariatric consults, mental health, adult and pediatric nephrology, and oncology.
