Toronto, Canada, March 1, 2022 – Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTCQB: DTMXF) (the "Company" or "Datametrex") today announced the launch of a beta version of its Medi-Call telehealth app.
Medi-Call, a Canada-based subscription service that proactively connects patients with doctors, will begin beta testing the app today with a focused group of physicians and end-users in Ontario and Quebec. This testing will allow the Company to make any necessary changes and ensure the best user experience for physicians and clients. The beta version will also help prepare Datametrex for a full and seamless launch of the app as quickly as possible while gathering important quality assurance feedback from valued testers.
“To get the app ready for beta testing in this short period is a milestone for the Company and shows our commitment and belief in the potential of the sector,’’ said Marshall Gunter, CEO of Datametrex AI. “With this new application, we are looking forward to meeting the growing demand from physicians and potential patients by taking the next step to capture the full potential of Medi-Call’s services.”
The Medi-Call app will help physicians effectively manage their appointments, while simultaneously providing faster treatment and care for patients. The launch comes at a time when digital access to healthcare is more important than ever, and current data shows more people are turning to telehealth for their basic healthcare and mental health needs, a trend amplified by the pandemic.
According to recent findings by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), 82% of Americans have used telehealth services to meet with a medical professional during the pandemic. More interestingly, 69% of respondents said they had used telehealth through a video format. Only 38% had met with a doctor over the phone.
Even more positive, a survey by the Canadian Medical Association found that about 91% of Canadians were satisfied with their teleconsultation experience
Health technology and telehealth in Canada took a big leap in 2020 and are expanding worldwide. By 2027, the telehealth market could be worth over $830 billion.
