Health care is taking a dynamic shift as digital technologies enable people to more readily seek information about their health, manage their personal health information, find appropriate services and even gain access to medical specialists and other providers remotely. To support patient empowerment, health care solutions provider Dynacare is leveraging technology to deliver novel health solutions and applications.

“Our goal is to empower individual health consumers with trusted information,” says Dynacare president and CEO Naseem Somani. From its core expertise in laboratory testing, the Ontario-based company is positioning itself to become the health and wellness solutions leader in Canada with a stronger focus on the consumer segment and enhanced solutions for government, public sector health services providers and private corporations.

“We are contributing to the sustainability of health care – whether it’s for the public system, the workforce, or just really helping people to be more informed and in better control of their own health,” Somani says.

Set on providing the next-generation consumer health technology, Dynacare has developed under its Dynacare Plus brand an application that allows patients to review real-time lab and health service centre waiting times in advance and then check in to their preferred location remotely. In this way, patients can eliminate wait times at Dynacare locations and have more time for themselves. Moreover, a health web portal targeted to health consumers provides users with the information and tools they need to more actively manage their own health and wellness. This includes comprehensive content that explains the significance of lab results and tools to help patients play a more active role in managing chronic diseases.

Other turnkey solutions include Dynacare Insurance Solutions, which provides paramedical services, evidence gathering and lab testing to its insurance partners. Dynacare Workplace assists companies in the growing area of employee health and wellness programmes. Dynacare Next positions the company at the leading edge of genetic and companion diagnostic testing.
