Accessibility & iamsick.ca
Our goal is to offer a healthcare wayfinding & e-booking platform that helps all Canadians access healthcare, tearing down the barriers that a Canadian patient or caregiver may face.
The iamsick.ca platform already addresses a number of barriers, and we have more solutions in the works.

- Access to Knowledge & Information

- Language Barriers
- Mobility Barriers
Our platform was also designed with insights gained from user experience design & healthcare literacy experts.
