Savience won its first major contract in Canada in December 2015, a year after identifying the country as offering a significant opportunity for its digital technologies.

Like the NHS, the health service in Canada is held in high regard. And there are also parallels in the way healthcare is delivered. But Canada’s health service also offers a R&D friendly environment and accepting of new ideas and products.

It is a hotbed of innovation, with hospitals generally keen to test new concepts, embrace mobile technology, and share data to improve health outcomes. Many of the innovations developed in Canada will have huge value in the NHS.

Impressive growth

Savience has gone from strength to strength since winning its first ever deal in Canada with Quinte Health Care for an appointment system at Ontario’s Belleville General Hospital. This was quickly followed with implementations at Lennox and Addington County General Hospital and William Osler Health Systems.

The adoption of mobile technologies, in part driven by the demands of the pandemic, mean that Savience is now a firm fixture in Ontario and BC. There are over forty hospitals using a combination of kiosk and mobile solutions. Solutions that support self- booking and which manage patient flow for scheduled unscheduled and virtual appointments.
