CloudMD Closes Acquisition of Medical Confidence
Leverages database of 50,000 specialists to reduce wait times for specialist appointments and medical procedures resulting in better access to care and return to work outcomes
CloudMD Software & Services Inc., a telehealth company seeking to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare to patients, is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced acquisition of Medical Confidence Inc., a revolutionary healthcare navigation platform with proven results in wait time reduction and patient satisfaction.
Medical Confidence provides access to a proprietary, real time digital database of publicly available specialists and their wait times, allowing patient referrals to the right specialist in the shortest available time. The platform provides medical consultations, wellness plans and referrals to Canadian healthcare providers in support of patients’ mental and physical health issues. The company’s clinical healthcare navigators use a collaborative, team-based, approach that leaves individuals motivated and supported throughout their care journey, as well as eliminates frustrations and mental health issues surrounding lack of access to care and long wait times to see appropriate care.

Medical Confidence’s solutions are utilized by a wide range of customers including employers, individuals, disability case managers, life and health insurers and property and casualty insurers. Proven results include a 20% reduction in benefit and disability costs, 6-month reduction in disability duration (on average), access to treatment 220 days sooner (on average), and improved employee satisfaction (reported by 75% of clients). Currently, Medical Confidence has long standing contracts with Canada’s largest group benefit and disability insurers.
The integration of Medical Confidence into CloudMD’s platform of Enterprise Solutions will enable employers and insurers to realize lower absenteeism and improved return to work outcomes with personalized health and wellness care plans and improved access to healthcare resources. The combined forces of CloudMD, Snapclarity, HumanaCare, iMD and Medical Confidence changes the landscape where employers can offer one solution that addresses the health needs of their workforce and eliminates the need of multiple vendors. Employers will be able to offer their employees a group benefit plan that will not only provide access to care for mental and physical health issues but improve the financial costs associated with the current $7.5 billion dollars spent on long term disability.
