New Telehealth platform drCalls.me
Public

Hi all:

As a FP and ER doctor since 1986, I've been involved of late with a software company that developed Verified Medical, a secure document storage and collaboration platform. With the arrival of COVID-19 we realized that there was a need for a free, secure video consultation platform that meets the needs of healthcare professionals for tele-working with PHIPA, PIPEDA and HIPAA compliance.

We recently opened the platform to the profession through drCalls.me and are seeking input from colleagues on how best to develop the platform functionality further.

Book Review: The Last Plane by Robert Hirzer
Public

This is a good book, a well written novel. It is the first book by the author, Robert Hirzer, a physician and GP whose practice was in the area served by the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC - the hospital where he interned and where he was on staff in the days when doctors not only worked in their offices but also cared for patients in hospital.

The novel, while it is a work of fiction, is a reflection following the death of his father on the lives of his family spanning four generations including his grandparents, his parents, his own generation with brief mention of his children. In one short chapter he describes a day in the life of a GP that rings true for many who practiced in days when full spectrum general practice was the norm. But, most of the novel is about the lives of his parents through their childhood in Austria into youth and young adulthood as the second world war consumed those years.
