Participation in two major healthcare events

At Akinox, we understand the importance of grasping the daily needs and challenges of users. That's why we immersed ourselves in the digital health realm by participating in two pivotal industry events: First Line in Health in Montreal on May 2nd and 3rd, 2024, followed by e-Health in Vancouver from May 26th to 28th, 2024. Our dynamic team was on-site to engage with experts and explore the latest advancements in digital health.

During these two events, we were captivated by a multitude of discoveries and we are pleased to share them with you today. Happy reading!

The surge of telemedicine

Since then, over 15,000 teleconsultations have been conducted using our solution, contributing to transforming the medical landscape towards a more connected and accessible future.

The importance of supporting mental health

Mental-Health-Illness-SolutionWe were particularly captivated by the field of mental health at recent conferences, attending several sessions to deepen our understanding of current challenges.

According to Statistics Canada and the results of the Mental Health and Access to Care Survey, over 5 million people in Canada experienced significant symptoms of mental illness in 2022. This trend is mirrored in other countries, where there has been a notable increase in cases of depression and anxiety, especially in 2020 and 2021.

Telemedicine offers an innovative way to meet the growing mental health needs. By enabling remote consultations, it removes geographical and temporal barriers, providing essential support to those most in need. Individuals in remote areas or facing physical mobility challenges can now access high-quality mental health services easily.

Telemedicine allows for greater customization of mental health care. Patients can receive regular, individualized follow-up tailored to their specific needs, which can enhance treatment effectiveness and promote better long-term outcomes. By combining technology with a patient-centered approach, telemedicine opens new avenues for addressing mental health issues.

Akinox is committed to actively promoting access to mental health services through telemedicine. By developing innovative solutions and collaborating with government authorities and healthcare professionals, we aim to contribute to improving the mental well-being of the population. Through our expertise in medical technology and our dedication to innovation, we are determined to make a positive difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health challenges.

Towards better interoperability

Interoperability in digital healthcare solutions other topics that caught our attention, the interoperability of healthcare systems has become a critical issue to ensure effective continuity of care. As patients navigate between different healthcare providers and systems, it is essential that their medical information can be exchanged seamlessly and securely.

Significant efforts are being made to improve the interoperability of healthcare systems, with the ultimate goal of ensuring optimal care coordination and a better patient experience. Two of our colleagues presented a conference on this topic during e-health Vancouver.

Our expertise in interoperability was particularly highlighted at this event, demonstrating our ability to offer innovative solutions in this strategic area for the future of digital health. To learn more about our thoughts and approach to interoperability, read our blog article.

Patient access to records

Patient and doctor access to patient health recordsLastly, patient access to their health data via online portals has seen significant expansion. Patients increasingly demand easy and secure access to their medical information. These platforms allow patients to view their medical records, schedule appointments online, and communicate with their healthcare providers, thereby enhancing autonomy and engagement in their own health.

During these events, our colleagues led engaging conferences on current topics such as telemedicine, virtual care, and interoperability. Their expertise attracted a large and interested audience, providing a valuable platform for exchange where participants could ask questions and share views on these critical topics for the future of digital health.
