TORONTO–BookJane Inc. (“BookJane”) announced that they have been selected as the technology solution for the Ontario Medical Association (“OMA”) to directly manage the shortage of physicians in hospitals and other healthcare facilities across Ontario. Since launching on April 3, 1500 physicians have registered on the platform to meet the growing demand.
“Our BookJane J360 Platform will allow any hospital or health care facility in Ontario to book a physician when they need one in seconds,’ said Curtis Khan, CEO and Founder of BookJane. ‘We are helping to provide relief to overworked physicians and directly address any short-staffing need.”
The proprietary BookJane J360 Platform allows any hospital or healthcare facility in the Province to immediately broadcast a service request to physicians across Ontario, based on proximity and availability. The requests appear directly on physician’s phones through the mobile app to ensure the quickest response time and acceptance of the request.
“The OMA has been working with BookJane for the past few weeks to tailor the app to ensure Ontario’s physicians are working where they are most needed to fight COVID-19,” explains Allan O’Dette, Chief Executive Officer, OMA. “Since launching late on the evening of April 3, more than 1500 physicians have registered. We appreciate BookJane’s partnership and thank all the physicians who have signed up. We know many are doing this in addition to their current clinical responsibilities.”
BookJane is currently working with the OMA to get all Ontario physicians onto the mobile platform. Physicians can register directly through the BookJane iOS or Android app and within minutes can see where there is a need for their services.
“COVID-19 impacts everybody and we are proud to provide a solution to help meet the evolving needs of our healthcare system and frontline workers as they deal directly with this crisis,” said Khan. “In hospitals, time is everything. And our system will save valuable time when Ontarians need it most.”
BookJane is currently working with other caregiver associations to migrate their memberships onto the platform so that hospitals may be able to access one hub for a variety of staffing needs. BookJane’s J360 platform has delivered over 1 million caregiver service hours to many health care clients across the province.
BookJane is the world’s first award-winning healthcare platform that allows Care Communities to create their own gig-economy to more efficiently utilize their staff, reduce costs and provide better care. The enterprise platform is currently being offered throughout the United States and Canada.
