Solving problems leads to widespread impact
RelayMD is improving the specialist referral process for healthcare practitioners, leading to positive outcome for patients
Primary care physicians are sending referrals with a keyhole view of the network of specialists available — at great cost to patients — and RelayMD founders Dhvani Patel and Dr. Ali Qamar are pioneering a way to improve the process.
RelayMD was one of four finalists to receive $5,000 at Velocity’s $5K Pitch Competition in November. Patel and Qamar said winning the competition is one stop on the journey to solve this “perpetual and recurring issue” in the Canadian health-care system.
