Karim Vellani

Through numerous leadership experiences in quality improvement, information technology, patient engagement, and front line clinical care at St. Michael’s Hospital Department of Family and Community Medicine, Dr. Karim Vellani gained insight into patients’ frustrations with accessing healthcare when they needed it.  As a result, he founded MediCall (medicall.md), a company that provides after-hours home visits and virtual care for patients in Ontario.  A core philosophy when designing MediCall was to ensure patient relationships, patient satisfaction, patient context and patient continuity were not compromised in the delivery of care. Using a backend collaborative health record combined with the philosophy of putting patients first, MediCall has been successful in creating a unique patient-centred experience while at the same time delivering high quality, data driven care.
