The Health Technology Commercialization Hub is powered by Brightsquid Secure Communications Corp., a Calgary-based health tech company with over a decade of success delivering healthcare applications to North America and Europe. All of our applications are built on our privacy compliant engine that keeps patient information safe to the letter of the law in the US, Canada, and the EU.
HATCH members (Hatchlings) gain access to that foundation of compliance as well as expert training, integrations with leading medical software, and an existing market of hundreds of thousands of end users.
As part of the HATCH program, you’ll integrate into the TELUS Health Exchange through Brightsquid's existing connection. This will empower your application to exchange information with clinics that are using TELUS EMRs equipped with MedDialog (a TELUS Health product).
We can all agree that healthcare needs more innovation.
The challenge is twofold. First, government run healthcare organizations aren't structured to innovate in a timely or efficient way. Second, most health technology companies fail against strict privacy standards, lengthy negotiations to integrate with established technology vendors, and government procurement cycles that can take years.
The HATCH accelerator program will help healthcare startup companies overcome these challenges to get their innovations in the hands of physicians and patients much more quickly.
