Canadians have the longest healthcare wait times in the developed world.
There are many factors that cause delay in access to healthcare.

What happens when we don’t participate in our own healthcare?

  • Delays in access and treatment
  • Primary Care Practitioner does not refer to the ideal Specialist
  • Incorrect or inappropriate diagnostic testing
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Treatment less likely to be successful
  • Poor prognosis and outcome

If you are struggling with an illness or new diagnosis, our My Health MaP platform and MedExcellence program can help you regain a sense of control at a time when you might feel most vulnerable. Our resources can help improve your access to appropriate healthcare whether you are still working, retired or are currently off work on leave.

When you’re ill, and facing the prospect of a leave from work, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed; navigating the Canadian healthcare system and an absence from work can be very challenging, especially when you’re in need of specialist care.

MedExcellence connects you with healthcare navigators who have helped thousands of patients find the support, education and timely access to physician specialists they needed.

Through MedExcellence you will:

  • Share your medical history with a healthcare navigator
  • Find 2-3 MedConfidence Specialists* with the right skills and availability to treat you
  • Work in partnership with your primary care practitioner, and if you do not have one help you find one
  • Receive help securing the first available appointment and ensuring you are prepared for it.
  • Help you understand the specialist’s recommendations and diagnosis, so you can move forward with confidence in your treatment decisions
  • Schedule follow-on treatment, including surgery if necessary

(*) The MedConfidence Network is a unique database of leading Canadian Specialists. This coast-to-coast network consists of more than 17,000 Specialists across more than 800 areas of specialization.

  • “Every orthopedic surgeon I spoke with told me my only option was a hip replacement, which meant I needed to wait until I could no longer walk. Medical Confidence helped me find a leading surgeon in hip resurfacing procedures, and got me my life back.”

  • “After waiting 6 months to see a specialist only to find out he didn’t treat my condition, Medical Confidence found me a leading specialist who saw me in just 3 weeks, and performed my surgery only 4 weeks later.”
