"After years of practice, I started to notice the strains on our healthcare system. I imagined how technology could play a role in improving the sustainability of our system and people’s healthcare experiences across the country."

- Dr. Brett Belchetz, Co-founder and Maple CEO

Technology for healthcare organizations to explore new types of care

One of our proudest moments was launching Canada’s first telerounding program with PEI’s Western Hospital. Using Maple, nation-wide doctors collaborate on patient care at a remote, understaffed hospital.
