MCI Onehealth Sees Record Telehealth Visits
TORONTO, Feb. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MCI Onehealth Technologies Inc. (“MCI”) (TSX: DRDR), a clinician-led healthcare technology company focused on increasing access to and quality of healthcare, saw a record year in 2021 for telehealth sessions. Nearly 300,000 patients accessed MCI’s high-performance healthcare network via telephone consults with physicians, or via MCI Connect, MCI’s virtual care delivery platform, up from 200,000 the year before. At the end of 2021, overall patient visits -- telehealth and in-person -- remained strong despite pandemic conditions.
“Our custom-built virtual care platform, MCI Connect, provides the convenience and simplicity that patients need when an in-person visit might not be possible or necessary for them,” said Dr. Alexander Dobranowski, CEO of MCI. “MCI Connect and telephone consults have been crucial services for patients during the pandemic, with nearly thirty thousand completed visits through MCI Connect since its 2021 launch. What sets MCI Connect apart from competitors’ services is MCI’s ability to provide continuity of care to patients who can receive ongoing care at one of our many clinics if in-person follow-up care is required.”
With MCI Connect -- mciconnect.ca -- patients in Ontario can see a doctor online immediately, or easily schedule online or in-person appointments for general practitioners and specialists. MCI Connect will soon be available as an iOS app on the App Store, with an Android version to follow. MCI Corporate Health Solutions will be leveraging MCI’s proprietary MCI Connect patient-experience platform in 2022 as part of its corporate programs, creating a unique suite of digitally-available services, modernizing offerings for the occupational and corporate health market and meeting the needs of corporations that, as result of the pandemic, have never been more invested in ensuring accessible healthcare for their employees.
While providing access to high-quality, accountable care to more than one million patients each year, MCI continues to identify, prioritize, develop, and launch new products, services and business models that create positive health impact and investor value. MCI’s integrated systems and data-driven approach unlock meaningful insights and provide real world evidence to accelerate patient recruitment for clinical trials, accelerate patient access to treatment and support regulatory decision-making. MCI has seen organic growth across its integrated high-performance healthcare network. MCI’s Corporate Health Solutions, Khure Health and Executive Medical Concierge Canada each delivered record years, with year-over-year revenue growth in excess of 70%, 50% and 80% respectively.
