Digital health company helps personalize online care
A health tech company founded by a Schulich graduate is helping patients visit doctors online, reducing the need for in-clinic visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founded by Daniel Warner (MBA 2012), MediSeen allows health and wellness practitioners to schedule and manage virtual and in-home care. The software is currently free for all physicians and other health and wellness practitioners across Canada for the duration of the pandemic.
“Our platform is well-suited for online and in-home care; to help ensure the public continues to heed the call for social distancing, our goal is to keep our community healthy by allowing patients to receive the access they need in their homes,” said Warner.
As all levels of government encourage Canadians to stay home to flatten the curve, seeing a doctor online provides an invaluable service. MediSeen has a free app that allows patients to book a physician or allied health provider of their choosing for a virtual or home visit.
