Today WELL Health Technologies launched apps.health, a digital health app marketplace that connects digital health tech companies and software developers to the WELL network of over 2,000 primary healthcare clinics and 10,000 physicians.
WELL intends on collaborating with third-party digital health application developers to market and promote their products and services to WELL’s network of 15 million patients at launch.
The apps.health developer program will provides assistance to developers to integrate to OSCAR Pro EMR, and other Electronic Medical Records solutions in the future. Healthcare clinics can have confidence working with third party application developers whose applications and software tools have been reviewed by WELL.
Publicly traded WELL Health (TSX: WELL) is focused on consolidating and modernizing clinical and digital assets within the primary healthcare sector and the launch of apps.health should accelerate adoption for both physicians and patients.
“To our knowledge apps.health is the first comprehensive offering of a digital health marketplace for EMR integrated apps in Canada that allow digital health software and technology companies to showcase their capabilities and provide a call to action,” said Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman and CEO of WELL.
“Our objective with apps.health is to provide an environment where clinicians and app publishers can meet and transparently discover opportunities to modernize and digitize practices across the country.”
The apps.health marketplace already features 12 partners including Ocean by CognisantMD offering applications encompassing solution categories including, telehealth, online booking, patient check-in and waiting room automation.
