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?
Yes. We have responded to the applicable calls. The Ontario Together call requires mental health virtual care solutions. We have submitted. No response. There will be a great need for solutions to address the needs of chronically ill patients and the elderly.
Already, very large segments of the population - mainly youth- require mental health support and care. Following the immediate crisis, more people are going to be traumatized and require support. Our company has proven technology solutions used by mental health professionals and validated through trials that have successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of an internet-based mindfulness- based interventions in reducing depression, anxiety, and stress symptoms.
Our solutions can easily be scaled to address the needs of different populations.

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
In the very near future, the country will require the services of companies to address the mental and physical health needs. Already, large sections of the patient population are unable to access care. Treatment for patients in need of chronic disease care, rehab and mental health support are being deferred.
Hospitals will never be the same. Services need to move away from the treatment centre and into the community. The company has demonstrated the use of virtual care technology solutions with complex chronically ill patients - Eg. A virtual integrated platform for Spinal Cord Injury was launched to clients of Spinal Cord Injury across the province

Do you have any final reflections or comments?
We are interested in exploring commercial partnerships that will drive commercialization and adoption of our technology and applications. An engagement with an institution includes conducting requirement gathering to understand the workflows, stakeholder gaps, needs and challenges.
The company works with the institution to design and build the platform to address the identified gaps/challenges. Once built, the platform is deployed for the institution.
