Patients are clamouring for more personal medical data and better communications with their doctors – and the healthcare sector needs to find a secure way to do that. One solution that is gaining traction is called mihealth, a messaging and personal health record (PHR) system which has been operational since 2011. The system was developed by Dr. Wendy Graham, founder and CEO of Toronto-based mihealth Global Systems and a family doctor with over 20 years practice experience. Today, several thousand patients are using mihealth in hospitals and clinics across Ontario and beyond.
