Avvy is the first Canadian health app to match clients with qualified practitioners who will drive to their residence to provide a range of services. The app makes a variety of routine healthcare services easy to access, including blood tests, strep tests, foot care, ear cleaning and routine vaccinations.
The service, available for both iPhone and Android users, launched on the Island of Montreal in February 2022 and has grown rapidly to include Montreal’s surrounding areas. App users can schedule appointments for themselves or for family members when and where it works for them, or on an ASAP basis.
“We’re excited to bring the Avvy experience to our patients,” says Melanie Jade Boulerice, director at Nomadic Nurse. “Scheduling often involves a lot of back and forth with patients. Avvy’s technology will make it easier and more convenient for patients to access our services while minimizing office overhead for our team.”
As with all mobile healthcare services, patients pay a convenience fee to access the booking, but can submit blood work requisitions or vaccine prescriptions from their physicians. Avvy is overseen by a clinical leadership group that includes several physicians based in Montreal.
“Nomadic Nurse has a stellar reputation within the greater Montreal area,” says Oren Sebag, CEO. “We’re pleased to be working together to meet ongoing client needs for accessible healthcare services at home. We believe that the trend toward saving time and minimizing risk to vulnerable family members is here to stay.”
