The Power of Scientific Rigor

Maintaining The Sacred Doctor-Patient Relationships Through Pandemic-Accelerated Technology Adoption

June 30, 2020

Based on the conversations we had with physicians for this piece, it was clear that valued relationships with their patients remain a key driver of their satisfaction today. Can COVID-19’s acceleration of the adoption of telemedicine serve as a tipping point to revisit improving physician satisfaction and give them a seat at the decision-making table, bringing humanity back to medicine?

Could a Roadmap to Wellness Solve Adherence to Health Regimens?

June 22, 2020

We’ve been prescribed a new health regimen to which we are all expected to adhere: sheltering at home, physical distancing, hand washing, and face masks. People feel surrounded and restricted by COVID-19 all day, everywhere. There is, however, an alternative way to think about what happened in the park that sheds new light on what it’s like to adhere to a health regimen and how we can best support patients.

The Doctor Will Zoom You Now

June 15, 2020

The pandemic and the need for physical distancing brought enormous pressure on regulators to alter rules that had inhibited the uptake of telehealth services. Will the changes adopted by regulators in recent months have profound implications on how medicine is done in the near future?

The Frontlines.Health Foundation has just made a donation of 400,000 masks to hospitals and healthcare systems in response to the urgent need for personal protective equipment (PPE) for the city’s frontline healthcare professionals combating COVID-19.

This donation is being allocated to a number of healthcare providers to help protect as many local medical teams as possible during the rapidly evolving pandemic and will significantly increase the number of new respiratory face masks being obtained for frontline healthcare professionals in Toronto.

COVID-19 Intubation Box

Protecting healthcare practitioners.

A simple piece of protective equipment that could make a difference in the fight against the outbreak. The New England Journal of Medicine has just published a video showing the effect of the intubation box.

In partnership with Klick Health and Italic Press, rapid localization (adjusting dimensions to match North American hospital beds and body sizes), prototyping, and distribution to Toronto area hospitals began within days. It is our hope to provide protection to physicians intubating patients across the Greater Toronto Area and North Eastern United States.
