As pressure on Ontario’s healthcare system rises amid concerns of overcrowding in hospitals, one Ottawa startup is finding its niche in improving at-home care for patients with complex care needs. Michel Paquet, CEO of Aetonix, joined Techopia Live this week to discuss how the company is improving remote care both in its home province and south of the border.
Aetonix develops a telehealth platform called aTouchAway that connects care providers to patients with chronic diseases and their families, reducing the need for hospital visits, keeping tabs on patients after they’ve left the hospital and giving support when and where it’s needed.
