Medeo's Online Doctor-Patient Visit Innovation Wins Best Concept Award from Small Business BC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 3, 2014) - Medeo has been enabling BC doctors with the technology to easily visit with their patients online for almost a year now, and was recognized for this innovation by Small Business BC as the recipient of the 2014 "Best Concept" award.

"Our team is proud and thrilled to receive this award among a distinguished field of small business leaders," says Ryan Wilson, CEO of Medeo. "Vancouver and BC are a hotbed for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit and that's one of the many reasons we chose to launch in BC before expanding further afield."

"Doctors and patients from the northern reaches of Fort Nelson to the heart of downtown Vancouver have quickly embraced convenient online video visits using their computers, iphones, ipads and Android devices. Medeo is starting to become an established tool for healthcare delivery all over BC."

Competition for the award was significant, with 417 businesses nominated in nine award categories. Presenting the award, Small Business BC stated: "Medeo has set out to significantly change and improve the delivery of medical services by providing online video appointments with individual family physicians. Medeo was created by a team of physicians and technologists who are committed to improving access to healthcare. Medeo sees a future where Canadians can access healthcare anytime, anywhere. They have set out to build an innovative system to make it more timely, convenient, and efficient for doctors to see their patients as they deem appropriate."

Since its formal launch in June of last year, more than 350 BC doctors and specialists have registered for Medeo, and 200 new patients sign-up every day. Medeo.ca is mobile and secure, allowing BC residents with valid Medical Services Plan coverage to visit online with a licensed BC doctor, and the visit is provincially insured.
