About us

Avvy is the first mobile digital platform connecting Canadian healthcare providers with patients looking to access healthcare services in the comfort and safety of home.

Avvy has partnered with leading physicians and nurses in the Montreal area to provide insight into our practices.

We engage leading clinical experts to vet our procedures and ensure they adhere to the strictest professional standards.

We are also constantly innovating to bring new technology to our platform in order to deliver a seamless, safe and secure experience – for both patients and providers. Avvy is currently available in the Montreal area, with plans to expand to other Canadian cities.

Partnerships

At Avvy, we love to work with companies that share our focus on delivering an easy, convenient, patient experience while changing the way healthcare is delivered. With the Avvy app, you can order a home healthcare service with your fingertips. There’s no need to call ahead or schedule a time. 

Some partnerships leverage Avvy’s digital platform to deliver home healthcare services to patients. We can bridge the gap between specimen collection, drug administration, wound changing or any other service. Avvy’s dependable healthcare professionals will be right there to help patients when and where it’s convenient for them. 

Other partnerships offer opportunities to collaborate around a shared cause.

For example, in April 2022, we partnered with Syantra, a leading precision medicine company based in Calgary, Alberta to make their blood test for breast cancer screening available to patients in Quebec for the first time. Read more.

We’ve successfully supported: 

  • Film crews for the entertainment industry
  • Specialty health technology companies
  • Employee benefits programs

Save your clients or patients time wasted looking for parking or waiting in line at busy facilities. View Avvy partnership news to learn more or drop us a line at partnerships@avvyapp.com. We’d love to hear from you.
