Describe your company's current technology and solutions
CloudMD Software & Services is a rapidly growing technology company focused on digitizing the delivery of healthcare by providing patients access to all points of their care from their phone, tablet or desktop computer.

We offer SaaS-based health technology solutions to medical clinics across Canada and have developed proprietary technology that delivers quality healthcare through the combination of connected primary care clinics, telemedicine, and artificial intelligence (AI). We currently have a combined ecosystem of 315 clinics, over 3000 licensed practitioners and almost 3 million registered patients.

Are you aware of any current government challenges or opportunities that would be addressed by using your technology solution? Or a future need you can identify?
As Canadians work to manage their busy lives around the realities of COVID-19, they occasionally seek medical attention for themselves or their loved ones. We have developed an innovative healthcare application that enables and supports physicians in the longitudinal care of their patients’ health. Our patient-centric focus places the power back in the hands of patients via a personalized health record that stores, manages and enables sharing of health information, no matter where the patient lives.

Through our solutions, patients have access to their charts, lab results, the ability to securely chat with clinical staff, reorder prescriptions and share remote health monitoring data with their doctor

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
As a result of the virtual nature of our solutions, clinicians can use our solutions to serve their existing roster of patients. The same platform could be used to facilitate the delivery of healthcare services to Canadians everywhere, including those living in remote communities as well as those in under-served areas. We can accomplish this through the use of our virtual health services delivery solutions (e.g. patient portal, EMR solution, mobile app) as well as through the placement of multi-functional kiosks in communities (providing a health care provider on the ground with diagnostic capabilities in addition to enabling telemedicine consults).
