TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OntarioMD is very pleased to be recognized by The Journal of mHealth as one of the world’s 100 most innovative health technology companies for 2018. It is one of three Canadian companies to receive this honour and the only Canadian company on the list that works directly with the Ontario government to successfully deliver provincial digital health assets to community-based clinicians.

Our in-depth understanding of physician practices and the innovative digital health programs we have developed for them are benefiting the Ontario health care system by:

  • Supporting population health monitoring for prevention and the management of chronic disease
  • Informing data-driven insights to perform practice and population-level analytics that change care
  • Using practice and regional-level data to assist physicians in quality improvement and monitoring their practice population as a whole

We are proud to be making a positive and tangible impact on patient care through empowering community-based clinicians with relevant, useful digital health tools based on government priorities.  We work closely, and are a valued partner, for the public and private sectors in bringing digital health innovation to the province and look forward to delivering additional clinically-valuable digital health tools and resources in 2019.

OntarioMD is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Ontario Medical Association and is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
