Meet the ShareSmart Team
Our team lives and breathes in Canadian healthcare. We invoke change that will make it better, smarter and healthier.
A staggering volume of private patient information is being sent over non-secure, smartphone devices. Specifically, across Canada, 89% of physicians report sending clinical photos of their patients to colleagues, regularly. This is the equivalent of millions of photos floating in cyberspace, vulnerable to unauthorized viewing by the world. This illustrates the scale of the issue and the need for a solution that acknowledges the prevalence of smartphone use in healthcare practice. With this, we assembled a team of the brightest experts in Canadian law, tech and medicine to develop ShareSmart, designed to address the intricacies of the unsecure, mobile, Canadian healthcare communication issue.
We are excited to finally introduce ShareSmart to you and trust it will fuel efficiency gains and patient care enhancement in your practice of healthcare.
