“We built our Lumeca Connect platform to be highly configurable,” says CEO, Tom Douglass. “When a platform powers an entire health authority like the SHA, it has to be configurable for various workflows – and that’s what Lumeca Connect offers. We have a workflow for everyone, from the simplest workflows to augment phone calls with video to workflows for providers who want patient self-scheduling.”
The Lumeca Connect Pro platform offers novel features designed to help patients find a family doctor based on geography and open appointment times of physicians taking on new patients. Lumeca anticipates these features will help patients seeking a family physician to be able to find one within a reasonable driving distance more easily and to consult with them virtually when appropriate.
“Lumeca is committed to enabling health care teams implement software that not only enhances their collaboration, but also improves their ability to support access to care for all citizens living in Ontario.” Says Kaitlyn Hebert, Vice President of Privacy and Safety at Lumeca.
