Naiad Lab. Receive $50,000 from CISCO Systems to Deploy MedROAD at a Clinic in Pincher Creek

Deployment of MedROAD Virtual Clinic: Starting August 1, 2020, we will initiate the deployment of the new re-engineered version of MedROAD Virtual Clinic at two sites. The first project is to deploy MedROAD VC at two private clinics managed by Dr. Cathy Scrimshaw from the Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP). We aim to demonstrate that MedROAD can provide a safe and effective way to deliver high-quality care to patients, lower the cost and risk associated with on-site clinical activities, and to promote seamless delivery of care during COVID-19. The partnership with Dr. Scrimshaw provides a unique opportunity to explore how virtual clinics can lead to a better quality of care in urban and remote communities, improving health outcomes, and introducing a preventative healthcare model. Furthermore, this deployment presents an incentive to explore educational and policy-making opportunities concerning virtual care and/or telehealth during a pandemic and a post-pandemic environment. To encourage this initiative, CISCO invested $50K to help us defray the cost of this deployment. This 5-month project will run six months ending on December 31, 2020. The project will be under the guidance of Dr. Boulanger’s CISCO Chair but will be executed by Naiad Lab Inc. under a subcontract.
