The service is growing rapidly, with 300 new practitioners joining HealthAware.ca each month. Over 1,000 practitioners are already using the service to acquire new patients, expand their practice and fill gaps in their schedules. Service providers can upload information such as practitioner bios, pictures and reviews to maximize their online presence to new and existing patients.
HealthAware.ca integrates with several clinic management software systems, allowing practitioners to post real-time availabilities. Receptionists control appointments and may confirm, cancel or reschedule requests. Integrations are currently available for Antibex Universal, PMP, Cleardent, ABELDent, Practice Perfect, Google Calendar, and many more. Upcoming integrations include Clinic Master, ClinicServer, Tracker and EyeFile.
Dr. Edward Shin, owner of KIROMEDICA in Scarborough, Ontario states: “We were excited about HealthAware.ca from the start, because we want to deliver exceptional customer service to our patients. Since joining HealthAware, nine new patients have come to us with pain that we were able to assist them with.”
Serial entrepreneur, Nikolai Bratkovski, founded HealthAware.ca in 2010, after suffering from a toothache that needed immediate attention from a dentist. Though Bratkovksi called several dental offices in his area, he could not be seen for an appointment. As a result of this struggle, he decided to harness his eight years of experience in the medical software field to develop a service that would help others avoid frustrating, negative experience. From this decision, HealthAware.ca was born. Bratkovski states that his vision for HealthAware.ca is to “provide patients with a revolutionary new method of accessing the myriad of health care options available to them within their communities.”
At this time, over 160,000 Ontarians use the service on a monthly basis to find practitioners and other relevant information. As one patient explained, “I simply plugged in my postal code, and selected physiotherapy from a drop down menu. I was able to find the right practitioner for me and get an appointment within minutes!”
