Omnimed, a company led by Xavier Boilard, supported by his sister, Stéphanie Blais-Boilard (general practitioner) and his mother, Danielle Blais (general practitioner), offers technological tools and also networks health care workers to enable them to share medical knowledge and thereby improve care.
My father said that when he started practicing, medicine was, for him, a science. Then, quickly, it became an art; that of guessing what he did not know, because the patient never gives all the information and the doctor has very rarely access to the entirety of his medical file. At the end of the day, he was haunted by the doubt, the idea that he could have been wrong and made the wrong deduction. It is to reduce this doubt that he imagined a shared electronic file. - Xavier Boilard, CEO of Omnimed and son of Dr. Boilard

One step at a time,
in an Agile way
Technologies are constantly evolving as are the best practices in the health sector, so us too! We do not pretend our proposal is perfect; we seek to always do better.
We work with you
We listen to our customers and try to involve them as much as possible in order to improve our product. It is by working together that we can truly improve care.
Together, as a team.
Without a good team, there is no result. We promote teamwork in order to create a strong relationship between our sixty employees and to highlight the strengths of each one of them. Here, there is a strong sense of belonging, a family spirit that unites us!
