A broken leg almost turned tragic for Zach Fisch when confusion during his recovery resulted in an infection that nearly took his leg. Along with Cory Blumenfeld, he co-founded Dash MD to ensure that hospitals can better equip patients to manage their aftercare before they leave the hospital. The Dash MD app provides patients with detailed instructions, reminders for follow-up care, and access to relevant post-treatment health-care services.
SmartStart funding helped the team revamp its back-end engineering, allowing for faster onboarding of clients. They also gained the expertise of a data analytics intern through OCE’s TalentEdge program. The Dash MD app is now live in eight Ontario hospitals, including Markham Stouffville, Michael Garron Hospital and Niagara Health.
