Through the alliance of this CAN Health project, Prism provided valuable customer feedback which enabled EZ Referral to further develop their platform and optimize their technology for ophthalmology clinics. Through the successful implementation of this customized solution geared towards eye care businesses, EZ Referral is now able to efficiently repeat this customization process for other medical specialties and scale-up through the country and across the border.
As a direct result of their success with Prism, and within only a couple of months into their partnership, EZ Referral was not only purchased by Prism, but also by another eye clinic in Ontario, as well as by two additional clinics in Newfoundland and Labrador. It has become the CAN Health Network’s first multi-jurisdictional and international procurement.
“Technology is revolutionizing health care. The national network we are building with CAN Health will ensure Canadian talent is getting all the advantages they need to succeed and lead in this space,” said Dr. Ike Ahmed, Medical Director, Prism Eye Institute
“The EZ Referral system makes a world of difference for both practitioners and patients,” said the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. “Not only is it easier and more efficient, in light of COVID-19 it enables e-assessments and e-consults so physicians can continue to care for their patients. Thanks to the support of the CAN Health Network, this great example of homegrown innovation be able to help even more Canadians.”
