With the ongoing healthcare crisis, Canadians are being negatively impacted. The most impacted, are students who live abroad away from family. Finding timely healthcare or urgent care is difficult. Latest data shows there are currently 388,782 international students enrolled in higher education in Canada (Source: https://erudera.com/statistics/canada/canada-international-student-statistics/).
Latest data reported from an Angus Reid survey found that six (6) million Canadians were without a family doctor and have been searching for over a year to get access to a general practitioner.

With Canadians struggling to find efficient healthcare, the current status of the healthcare system and lack of accessibility will be a much larger burden for international students settling into a new country. Medi-Call plans to be the service provider for international students in Canada with its easy access and ability to provide necessary healthcare services to students.
"Management has tapped into an international network that connects the Company with students abroad coming into Canada who are actively looking for healthcare solutions. This is an opportunity for Medi-Call to grow its patient base and help provide fast and efficient healthcare services to those who need it," said Marshall Gunter, CEO of the Company.
Medi-call is a subscription-based software as a service (SaaS) mobile application that connects patients with doctors. It is an integrated grid system that connects patients with providers in real time. Medi-Call solves accessibility issues for patients living in rural or isolated communities and those also have limited mobility while improving coordination and communication of treatment among healthcare team members and their patients. Medi-Call facilitates mobile health care services, including prescriptions and is passionate about building doctor-patient relationships virtually.
