Our Healthcare System Needs Innovative Tools
These tools need a process and the people who can make them work with the system, not against it.
From Start to Scale: The Digital Health Journey
Wherever you are in the process, challenges arise and we know how to get you past them. Here is a look at how we can help.
Ideate and Design
What is our end goal? How will we build and fund the project?
Together, we can plan out your project roadmap. We have experience in best practices and avoiding common pitfalls to help you along the way. QoC Health can navigate the process of raising money and help you secure funding for your project through various grants for digital health.
Prototype and Validate
How quickly can we get this prototype ready for testing?
Development needs to be done quickly and iteratively, with security and interoperability in mind from the start. QoC Health can build out your prototype while supporting the research studies that will allow you to measure and analyze its success.
Scale and Commercialize
Can we roll this project out in different countries? Can it integrate with other technologies?
With a solid product in hand, our team will be laser-focused on a full rollout. The QoC Health platform ensures that your project can be adopted in markets with different languages, technologies, and legislation. Leave the updates, technical support, and compliance documentation to us.
Connected Care that is Actually Patient-Centered
The term gets thrown around a lot, but it is so important to us and the future of healthcare. Involving patients throughout the process is something we take seriously.
Bayshore HealthCare is one of the country’s largest providers of home and community healthcare services. QoC Health helped them build a chronic-care, self-management, and coaching solution.
“We get the opportunity to evaluate many digital health companies. QoC Health offers a combination of perfect-fit solutions with off-the-shelf simplicity that is unique in the market.”
– Stuart Cottrelle, President and Founder of Bayshore HealthCare
QoC Health was the lead technology partner for the Partners Advancing Transitions in Healthcare (PATH) project, led by Northumberland Hills Hospital with initial funding from the Change Foundation. The technology solution included integrated portals and smartphone applications that enabled the sharing of health records, patient self-monitoring, educational information, caregiver support, secure messaging, and more. The project was targeted towards seniors/caregivers in the Cobourg area and is under expansion.
“I hope that this project strengthens, grows, and goes on to spread the same sort of thing to other communities … There is so much potential in what PATH is doing.”

QoC Health helped researchers and doctors at Women’s College Hospital (WCH) create a patient decision aid. It assists pregnant women with depression in making the best treatment decision for their own set of circumstances. This application is currently undergoing a multi-site trial evaluation in Canada and the UK.
“QoC Health was able to work within the boundaries of International Patient Decision Aids Standards and offered impressive ideas to help grow the product. We couldn’t have done it on our own. We provided the content and the patient steering committee to go over the various iterations; QoC Health provided the frame for the technical execution.”

A post-surgical monitoring application tested at Women’s College Hospital showed strong clinical outcomes and cost savings.
Women’s College Hospital was focused on reducing the total length of stay in their hospital while at the same time minimizing readmissions, increasing patient engagement in their own care, and increasing levels of satisfaction. The expedited discharge and at-home patient recovery left them with an absence of outcome data. This had become a barrier to quality improvement.
As such, Women’s College Hospital conducted a research study using a post-surgical monitoring application developed by QoC Health and achieved the following outcomes:
