Enabling healthcare providers to conduct secure video follow-ups after surgery

Toronto, ONJan. 18, 2023 – SeamlessMD, a leading Digital Care Journey platform for hospitals and health systems today announced that its platform meets the mandatory requirements established by Ontario Health as part of the provincial standard for Virtual Visits Verification solutions for use within the Ontario health care sector. Previously recognized as a Verified solution, SeamlessMD is now certified as a Validated solution on the Virtual Visits Verified solutions list.

Vendor solutions that have attested to meeting the mandatory requirements for Virtual Visit Validation are published on the Ontario Health website, which provides a verified list of solutions to help healthcare providers select virtual visit solutions that are appropriate for clinical use. The solutions listed have met a set of mandatory requirements outlined in the Virtual Visits Standard to ensure that clinical encounters delivered virtually are secure and that patient privacy is protected. Solutions listed as “Validated” have successfully completed scenario-based testing and a rigorous audit conducted by OntarioMD.

“Verification and validation of our digital care journey platform means hospitals and health systems can have peace of mind knowing that our solution is in compliance with all privacy, security, interoperability, and technical requirements,” said Willie Kwok, Chief Technology Officer, SeamlessMD. “Healthcare IT security is of high importance for our customers, so in turn, it is critical for us to meet all the validation requirements set out by the province.”

With SeamlessMD, patients access digital care plans on their smart devices or computers to be guided step-by-step via reminders, evidence-based education, and progress tracking before and after surgery. While healthcare providers can remotely monitor patients and access insights to elevate the patient experience, improve clinical outcomes and lower costs. SeamlessMD’s digital care journey platform is trusted by leading hospitals and health systems throughout North America who leverage the platform to digitally engage, connect, and remotely monitor patients.

The platform is HIPAA, PHIPA, PIPEDA, and PHIA compliant and meets regulatory requirements for enterprise-grade encryption, intrusion detection, and malware prevention. The platform is also SOC 2 Type II Certified and WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliant.

“As hospitals continue to wrestle with ongoing issues such as surgical backlogs, cancellations, bed shortages, and staffing challenges, healthcare providers are turning to virtual solutions to connect with patients outside the hospital walls. We’re excited to collaborate with our customers, hospitals, and providers to expand the use of our platform for video visits making it easier and more convenient to conduct post-surgery follow-up visits with patients, especially for those residing in rural communities,” explained Dr. Joshua Liu, CEO, SeamlessMD.

With this latest designation by Ontario Health, SeamlessMD is now a validated Virtual Visit Solution and remains the only Canadian solution on the OTN Vendor of Record for Surgical Transition Solutions.

In 2022, SeamlessMD was recognized as the CAN Health Network Company of the Year and named by AVIA Connect as a Top 5 Remote Monitoring Companies as well as one of the Top Patient Education companies.
