Paediatricians Can Now Access The Largest Physician Network in Canada

Paediatricians Can Now Access The Largest Physician Network in Canada

PetalMD is proud to announce a new partnership with the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS). Its 3,360 members are now part of the largest online physician community in Canada and can communicate with a range of family doctors and specialists in every province and territory.

Reach the Right Physician Rapidly

As part of their daily practice, paediatricians need to reach their patient’s main practitioner and other specialists. However, accessing these physicians is a challenge, as they are often not located in the same hospital or part of the same healthcare system. PetalMD offers paediatricians the opportunity to quickly contact the right physician through secure messaging on their smartphone. This not only improves practice efficiency, but leads to better patient coordination and outcomes.

Communicate Efficiently and Securely

For the Executive Director of the CPS, Mrs. Marie-Adele Davis, this is a great platform for her members to have access to tools that will help them become more efficient in their professional practice and, consequently, improve patient care for children.

“We are very pleased that our members now have the ability to communicate securely with 25,000 family physicians and specialists across Canada. We encourage other medical associations to join this free network in order to offer every physician the same privilege that CPS members currently benefit from.”
– Marie-Adele Davis, Executive Director
